Create a new patient: Click on the 'New Patient' button and fill in the patient information then click on the upper left check button - The system checks for an existing patient with the same first name, middle name, last name, and phone number - Any blank information is assumed to be the same as filled in information for the duplicate patient check, for example if the existing phone number is blank but the new phone number is given the blank phone number is assumed to be the same as the given phone number and will prevent a new patient if the first and last names also match. In this example, if they are actually separate patients, use RxAdmin and enter the different existing patients phone number to allow creating the new patient
