Display Primary Contact Number across Patient Header

Maybe add a small check box to select which phone number is the primary contact number and then display that across the header? Currently the top display automatically shows the home number and you have to open the Patient profile to find other numbers.

    Thank you for the update on 4/10, but please add the indication of which one is the preferred phone number.

    There is a option to select with method they prefer to be contacted with but when you are on the appointment screen- which is the list we use for patient reminder calls- it only shows the mobile number instead of showing the preferred method of contact.

    I would recommend including all phone numbers for the patient within the header and simply label with some indicator such as "H" for Home or "M" for mobile.

    Right now the only phone number that shows up in the header of the patient charts is the home phone number (which, in our practice, we rarely use). It would be so much easier for us to contact patients if we could see the selected contact method displayed right on top with the rest of their info instead of going to the profile tab to try to find it.

    Need to have the Cell number and Home phone numbers display at the top of the summary page.

  • Dr Pauravi Rana commented  · 

    Need to display phone number on Summary Page at top, alongside DOB and email address.

    There definitely needs to be a way to make the primary contact information more obvious in the patient's chart, especially since we can't type in extra characters to note it within the phone field.
