In BC, we have an auto-populate patient record function from the Ministry for faster billing. You only need to enter the new patient’s Health Card Number and Date of Birth to auto-populate the patient record.
Here is how to do so:
In the ClinicAid “Create Invoice” screen, click on the "+" in the "Patient Information" box (see screenshot):
Enter the patient's Health Number and DOB and click the green "Auto-Populate" button at the bottom and then the blue "Create Patient" button (see screenshot):
Create your claim as usual. The patient record will permanently save in ClinicAid (in the “Manage Patient” section) for future use.
