Contact Finder

Version 14.19

About Contact Finder

Path: Clinical, Practice Management or Billing tab > Patient Chart button > Family Contacts > Add button

The Contact Finder displays all of the patient's contacts in a window that is easy to navigate and sort. From here you can view all of the patient's contacts. These contacts are displayed in the Patient Register in the Contacts tab.

If a new contact is entered but contains the same information of an existing contact when registering a new patient that is a sibling to another established patient, this creates a duplicate that needs to be merged in order to link the family member.

WarningDuplicate Contacts will adversely affect the Patient Portal and must be merged.
