Deleting a Patient

You can delete fictitious patients from Communicare.

Note: Duplicate patient entries should be merged rather than deleted. Deleting real patient records distorts statistics that may be required in the future. The delete function deletes the current patient record and all clinical items, service records and everything else related to the patient. It is an extreme measure and should not normally be required.
To delete a fictitious patient record:
  1. In the main menu, select Patient > Delete.
  2. Enter a name and select the patient record you want to delete.
  3. In the Delete Patient window, type DELETE.
  4. Click OK.
The patient record is permanently deleted.
