Search > Patient
When searching for a patient record, within the set of demographic details presented is a Chart Number field as shown in the image below..
Enter here the patient's file number as recorded in your manual filing system. Up to ten characters can be entered, with at least one number included. The number does not have to be unique, as some filing systems store all patient's charts for a family under the same number. Patient records can be found by searching on this record number. Note that MedicalDirector Clinical generates its own internal (hidden) unique identifier for each patient record and does not use the Record Number field to keep track of patient records.
Tick the Search on Chart Number check box, and then enter the patient's chart number instead of their name. As you type, patients with matching chart numbers are displayed. As with typing a patient's surname, the more information you provide, the more specific the displayed list of patients.
