Change patient terminology

While many professions refer to the people they treat as patients, some professions may call them clients, customers or many other terms. Halaxy caters for all types of relationships and allows you to set the terminology for individual or all patients.

Change terminology for all patients

  2. Under the Patient Settings section, next to Terminology, click the Icon-Edit.svg edit icon.

  4. Click Save.

Your selected term now applies to all your patients in their profiles and invoices, except those with individual terminology settings.
