Adding Patient Flags to a Patient

Patient flags are a tool that can be customized to note and report attributes of:

  • A patient: Balance unpaid, special care needs, can/cannot receive treatment, needs special paperwork, etc.
  • An appointment: Requires follow-up visit, lab results needed, actions required pre or post-appointment, etc.

They can be used to communicate to your staff actions or characteristics of a patient or appointment and will appear whenever the patient or appointment is opened. Flags also may be used to generate reports, which can give you greater insights to your patients and/or appointments.

 

1. To add a patient flag to a patient, first bring up the patient's chart by going to Patients > Patient List or searching for the patient.
