Patient notes help keep track of personal information about the patient that doesn’t belong in more specific areas. You might include information about hobbies, preferences, family situations, etc. Patient notifications are meant to notify you of circumstances concerning your patients where a lack of information can lead to awkward or unpleasant situations. Set up notifications to remind you of the most important information where you need to see it.
