How To Edit An Existing Patient

When entering patient details it is important to know the significance of the Primary indicator. Details marked as Primary are the ones that will be used when using the document generation features and for other operations in the system. For example, if multiple addresses exist for a patient then their Primary one will be used in generated documents. Likewise, when a patient is right clicked and the 'Send Email' menu is clicked it will be their Primary email address that gets used.

Step 1
Click on the Patient Notes main tab in the application and click on a patient in the list. The 'Edit Patient' button will become enabled and you can click it to open the patient's details.
