Viewing the Patient List
To view the patients in your organization, select the Patients module from the main navigation on the left. Use the workspace dropdown at the top of the page to switch workspaces. If your organization has many workspaces, search for the one you're looking for by filtering the workspaces by name.
A similar filter mechanism is available to filter the list of patients. You can filter the patients by typing the patient's ID or name.
