Labels can be printed one at a time or by sheet. They can be customized in Sheets.
Individual labels are useful for single address labels for a patient, insurance carrier, or referrals, or for labeling patient records.
To print labels one at a time use a special label printer. A dedicated label printer costs about $150-$200. Since it uses thermal printing technology, it requires special labels made specifically for thermal printers. It plugs into the USB port and requires some installation. Once you setup your label printer as a Windows printer, go to the Printer Setup on the workstation where you will be printing labels. Set labels to print on your new printer with no prompt.
There are several places where single labels can be printed. Labels do not display on the screen before printing and are not saved in the database.Patient Labels

Print sheets of labels on a laser or inkjet printer. This method is useful when printing large quantities of labels, for Recalls, birthday cards, etc., though many offices prefer laser postcards instead. The disadvantage to this method is leftover labels on the sheet that are hard to run through the printer again. The Recall List has built-in functionality for printing sheets of labels.
There is also a Laser Labels feature which can print labels for patients, insurance companies, and birthdays.
If you need sheets of labels for any other purpose, you have to create a report, export to a text file, and then merge into your own Word template.
