Elite Tip—What’s in a Name?

When completing the patient report, please pay attention to the patient name entry boxes.

  • Please read the labels to ensure you are entering the correct information into the right box.
  • Either use all caps or capitalize the first letter.
  • Verify the correct spelling of your patient’s name. Smith could be Smithe or Smyth.
  • Verify that the first name is not a nickname. Is Bill legally William?
  • If you start to enter the name and the yellow header indicating “patient records match the information entered”, click on “Find a Repeat Patient”. This will prevent multiple entries for a person and should include less typing!  Please verify that the information entered is still accurate.
