Patient Duplicates

NB: This section may only be visible to users with a specific set of permissions.
If you cannot see it and believe that you should be able to, please speak with your organisation administrator.

On the Settings menu, in the tools section, select Patient Duplicates.

You will be shown a list of patients with similar patient records based on combinations of Medicare details, date of birth and last name.

Patients who have invalid Medicare numbers (those that don't pass the standard Medicare number checksum) are treated as if they have no listed medicare number or index.

For some records you will see a merge button available. You can initiate the merge process from here.

Please thoroughly check that patients are in fact identical before merging the records.

For more information on merging patient records please click here.
