In Halaxy, patients are automatically assigned a patient number by default. However, you can set up custom patient numbering for your patient profiles through the Settings page.
To add custom numbering for your patients:
Click Settings > General.
In the Patient Settings section, click Edit. The Edit Patient Number Setting pop-up appears.
Select "Custom Patient Numbering".
(Optional) Enter a prefix and suffix for your patient numbers.
(Optional) Enter the next available patient number. This can be useful for reconciling your patient numbering with a software package you have migrated from.
RESULT: The next patient you add to Halaxy will follow your custom numbering. Existing patient profiles will be unaffected.
