Important Content Update Message
We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 20. OP 20 (official version 20.0.x) is the certified, 2015 Edition, version of the Office Practicum software. This is displayed in your software (Help tab > About) and in the Help Center tab labeled Version 20.0. We appreciate your patience as we continue to update all of our content.

Patient Chart: Clinical Contacts

Version 14.19
The Patient Register window merged with the Patient Chart for easier convenience with the creation of OP 19. Since the Help Center supports both OP 14 and OP 19, the account functions within the patient chart for OP 19 will still be referenced at the same Help Center locations as OP 14.

Whether a new patient is entering your practice or your practice is transitioning from paper to electronic records, creating a patient's Demographic record is the first step in registering a patient into your database. The Patient Demographic record assigns each patient a unique patient ID number, and automatically creates a Patient Chart for the patient.

In the patient demographics section of the patient chart, you can:

  • Link Families
  • Confirm a new patient needs to be registered
  • Register a new patient
  • Print a patient’s demographics
  • Copy a sibling’s register record
  • Add relatives or contacts to a patient’s register record
  • Add miscellaneous notes
  • Add privacy restrictions
  • View and add consent forms
  • View and add to the patient’s coordination of care
  • Change the family address.

The Clinical Contacts window keeps track of the specialists, providers, pharmacies etc. that take part in the care of a mutual patient.
