Set up custom numbering for patients

By default, Halaxy assigns a patient number for every patient. If you have your own numbering system, you can set up custom patient numbering in your general settings.

Assign custom patient numbers

  1. Click Settings > General.

  2. Under the Patient Settings section, click Edit.

    • (Optional) Patient Prefix / Suffix: Enter a prefix and/or suffix for your patient numbers. You can leave these fields blank if you don't want to use them.

    • Next available number: Enter the next available number to use in the format you want. This is useful for reconciling your patient numbering from your previous practice management software.

  4. Click Save.

Your custom numbering applies starting with the next patient you add to your Halaxy. Existing patient profiles are unaffected by these changes.
