How to adjust a Patient's Chart Number

  • Updated

You may have accidentally entered in a patient chart number manually and now the numbers do not appear as expected.



When manually entering patient chart numbers, ensure you are in the correct field and you have entered a valid chart number.  Be careful not to add a health care or phin number in this field.

You are able to adjust the chart numbers that appear in patient profiles by editing settings.
