The patient management module is a comprehensive module that allows you manage patients, from taking their VITALS to BOOKING LAB TESTS to CHARGING FOR SERVICES. It is a collection of tools that makes it easy to manage a patient as well as follow up on the patients activities from the various departments the patient interacts with.
The full patient management activities are shown in the Manage Patient section of this documentation. Generally speaking, the patient management page is where you can perform functions specific to a patient. Once you open up the patient page, everything you do on that page applies to the patient in focus.
From the STATUS view (this is the first view when you open the page for the first time) you can see the last set of activities on the patient. You can see the last Vital Signs, the Last and next appointments, the last doctor's notes and other basic and important information on the patient. If you click on the button, you can see the patients medical records for a specified period. You can adjust the start and end dates to get more information on the patient.
On the right column, you will see tools for Charging the patient and posting patient's payments
