We add them in on the contacts tab as next of kin (NOK).

Hi Rachel

Thanks Tonia, the Contacts tab is your best place to store this information.

To begin, you will need to create a Contact Type. From the System menu, select Contacts and then Contact Types



Select Add, give the Contact Type a name and then select OK



Navigate to your patient’s file to add in a contact. Select the Contacts tab and then Add



Select New to create a Contact, enter the relevant details and then hit OK



Click New to create a new Relationship or select one used previously from the drop down and hit OK



You will now have the emergency contact details all in one place on a patients file.
