You can create a new patient in the ThoroughCare Dashboard or worklist.

Creating a New Patient:

Begin by navigating to the ThoroughCare dashboard or a worklist. Then, click the " + Create New Patient " button located in the top right hand corner of the page.

Once the " + Create New Patient " button is clicked, a "Create Patient" pop-up will appear. First begin by entering the patient's first name, last name, DOB, and gender (these are the required fields).

The rest of the fields are " Optional", meaning they are not necessary to create a patient. However, the more information that is added to the patient's chart the easier it is to manage the patient's care. We recommend filling out as many fields as possible. ThoroughCare's patient data options are:

  • Language

  • EHR ID (this is optional but we recommend adding it)

  • Eligible Programs

  • Primary Care Manager

  • Primary Physician

  • Primary Indurance

  • Secondary Insurance

  • Home Phone/Mobile Phone/Work Phone

  • Preferred Phone

  • Phone Notes

  • Email

  • Has Mobile/Allow SMS/Video check boxes

  • Street/City/Zip/State

  • Place of Service (POS)

  • Risk Level

  • Risk Score


Once finished populating the "Create Patient" fields, click the "Create Patient" button located at the bottom of the pop-up.

Immediately, the patient will be created and the user will be taken to the new patient's "Patient View Page".

Note: all patient information entered will be visible from the "Patient View Page"

Congrats, you've created a New Patient!
