Case Information Tab Overview
A case is a description of the patient's condition. Information about the referring physician, referral, diagnosis, and insurance are all associated with the patient's case.
Cases are discipline-specific. In a multidisciplinary organization, a patient will often have multiple cases, one for each specialty treating the patient. If a patient has been seen previously in your organization, then that patient might have an old, inactive case and a new, active case. If a patient has two distinct injuries or conditions that are covered as separate claims, then they might also have multiple cases. For example, a patient who is being treated for a cervical injury being claimed against automobile insurance and a second knee injury being claimed against the patient's commercial insurance would have two active cases.
All active and inactive cases for a selected patient are listed in the upper left-hand corner of the Client Editor and color coded as follows:
- Blue background: active case
- Pink background: discharged case
- Gray background: discharged case, collections complete
