Patients Status - Family Head / Family Member


To manage family files, it is useful to understand Patient Statuses.

Each patient’s status is found in Patients > Patient Records > Patient Details tab. 

There are two types of patient statuses: Family Head and Family Member

  1. Family Head: can apply to an individual or family file

    1. Individual: A patient exists in the database as a single file with no family members linked to it.

    2. Family: A patient exists in the database alongside family members, and is the family head of the family file. A crown will be shown next to the family head in the Family Members drop list.

  2. Family Member: a patient exists in the database alongside their family head and other family members.
