Did you know you should be recording a reason when you delete data?

It is good practice to record the reason behind the deletion of data from a patient record.

Therapy is the only data type that has a reason for deletion recorded as part of the process, in order to record the deletion of other sorts of data:

 From Consultation Manager Con Mgr.png open the patient required and locate the data that needs deleting.

2. Right click on the data and select Edit

3. Depending on the type of data you have selected, enter your reason for deletion in either:

  • Notes Long Notes.png, or
  • Comments.

 

4. Select OK.

5. Now, right click on the entry again and select Delete.

Now when you view deleted data, see Show Deleted Records for details, the reason is displayed for auditing purposes:
