Is it possible to have a tab where we can store credit card data? There is one for Medicare, HICAPS and DVA but no where to put a credit card. We have a lot of clients who we see mobile and this is how they pay.

Hi Catherine. We need to think about this as storing credit card details does have some additional responsibilities and privacy consequences. Generally when credit card details are stored in system the full card details aren't visible, generally just the last 4 digits to prevent internal (or external) access to the data. 

You could store the card details in the Notes area on the patient file but I am not officially recommending this as a directive from Smartsoft. 

We will monitor the community interest in this and perhaps review the legislative requirements in this area.
