Additional Information

  • The reason it’s so important to check for an existing patient is because once a patient record is created in Ascend, it cannot be deleted.
  • In the Create New Household dialog box, the X at the end of the patient name row will allow you to delete that household member before you click Save.
  • If a patient in a household prefers to receive their own reminders, you can set that in the Patient Information page under Related Patients.
  • For more information, read Adding new households.
