Patient demographics, insurance information, billing information and patient portal access can all be managed in the Patient Information window in the patient chart.
Enter or edit a patient's basic information by expanding the Patient Information block located under the photo block in their dashboard. Expand it by clicking the pencil icon at the upper right of the block.
Enter the patient's name(s) in the fields provided, each of which has a 55 character limit.
Phone number(s) may be entered in any format (up to a maximum of 35 characters per field) and will be displayed exactly as entered.
You may enter up to two email addresses for the patient, which must be in a valid email address format. Email addresses will be displayed exactly as entered.
You may add any number of nicknames, separated by commas (no character limit). Nicknames are used to look up the patient's records in the patient search bar at the top right-hand corner of each page. Do not re-enter the patient's last name along with the nickname(s).
If there is any very important information that should be prominently displayed on the patient's dashboard, that indoemation can be added in the "notice" field. Any text that is entered in the Notice field will be highlighted at the top of the "Need to Know" box on the patient's dashboard as well as on any scheduled appointments.
Enter the patient's home and/or work address in the Addresses tab. If the patient has a separate billing address, it can be entered in the Billing tab.
