Merging Patients

The Merge Patients tool can be used to merge duplicate patient accounts into one. Patient first name, last name, and birthdate do not need to match.

  1. In the Main Menu, click Tools, Misc Tools, Merge Patients.

  3. Patient to merge from: Click Change to select the patient accounts that will be merged into the top patient.
  4. Click Merge. A message will show when the merge is successful.
