Personal information about a patient is recorded in patient records in Communicare. Use the Patient Biographics window to add, edit and review patients' personal information.

Click Biographics icon Patient Biographics to display patient search and add or edit a patient's information.

Personal information is divided into the following groups, displayed on separate tabs:
  • Personal
  • Social
  • Administration
  • Identifiers - if enabled
  • Additional - if enabled, custom fields unique to your Communicare installation

After a particular type of information is set in patient biographics, it can't be edited except by users with Patient Edit system rights included in their user group.

Although most fields are optional in Communicare, some demographic information may be required by government bodies.
