How to Add and Edit a Patient

Add new patients into the EMR with the Add Patient or Send Intake Invitation links. You can learn more about the Patient Intake feature here.

Quick Add Patient

You also have the option to use the Quick Add patient functionality. This form allows you to quickly create patients and get them scheduled without a complete patient profile. However, for Members with WebPT Billing, Therabill, or another billing integration with the Prevent Note Finalization setting enabled, therapists won't be able to finalize notes for patients with incomplete profiles until their patient information is completed. This ensures that only completed patient records flow into your billing integration, preventing billing errors and delayed claims. We only recommend enabling Quick Add if your practice has strong patient information collection workflows, otherwise, your therapists may be prevented from finalizing notes in a timely manner.
