Adding a Patient

Before treating a patient in INRstar you will have to add their patient record onto INRstar.

Patient Demographics

First you’ll have to add the patient’s demographics details.

Please Note: If you have an interface to TPP SystmOne, Emis or INPS Vision you can pull out the demographic details from each clinical system.

Click here for step-by-step instructions.


Add Clinical Details

After the patient’s demographics have been added a treatment plan will then need to be added to start treating a patient.

Error: this patient may already exist at this location as…

If you receive a duplicate error message like above you may already have adding the patient you are currently trying to add. You will then have to reactivate the patient’s inactive record on INRstar. For more information see Duplicate Patient Records.

Please Note: You must have the patient you want to add into INRstar open in TPP SystmOne.

On the INRstar Navigation bar click the 'Patient' button to display the patient Search screen.

Click the 'Add Patient' tab to display the add patient screen.

When using INRstar, the first time you get a patient from TPP SystmOne or save a patient’s new treatment into TPP SystmOne, a message box will appear in TPP SystmOne.

You need to click the ‘Allow Connection’ button so that INRstar and TPP SystmOne can share data.

You will need to log out and then log back in again to TPP SystmOne to complete the interface settings.


A messagebox will appear asking if you would like to get the current patient from TPP SystmOne.

Click the 'Yes' button on the message box to get the patient details from TPP SystmOne.

Step 1: INRstar will get the current patient's demographics from TPP SystmOne.
 

Step 2: The patient's details will populate the 'Add Patient' form. Please check these are the expected patient’s details.

Step 3: Please select the patient's Clinician in the 'Add Patient' form.

Step 4: Click the 'Save' button to save the patient into INRstar.
 

If a patient’s record is not open in TPP SystmOne or TPP SystmOne is not open, an error will appear.
 

If this happens, make sure TPP SystmOne is open, select the correct patient in TPP SystmOne and click the 'Retry' button.

If you click the 'No' button, the add patient's details screen will display to allow you to enter the patient's details in manually.

The interface between INRstar and Clinical systems allow the user to:

  • Extract a patients demographic information from clinical system when adding a new patient record into INRstar.
  • Save a patient’s INR treatment under the corresponding patient record in the clinical system.

In order to use the clinical system interfaces within INRstar, you will need to contact the INRstar Sales team on 01209 710999 to purchase a clinical system licence.  Without this licence on your account the clinical system integration options will not be available.

Once you have purchased your licence, you will need to enter your EMIS configuration settings into INRstar - you will only need to do this once. Use the guides below to see what information INRstar requires and where you will find that information in your EMIS system. See related content.

Please Note: You will need EMIS to be open.

Within INRstar you are able to add a new patient using the details stored in EMIS.

Step 1

Navigate to the 'Patients' page using the navigation bar in the top right hand corner.
 

Then click the 'Add Patient' tab.
 

 

Step 2

To search for a patient within EMIS, you need to enter either the patient’s NHS number, Family Name, Given Name or Date of Birth or all four.

Click the 'Search EMIS' button.

 

Step 3

The matching patients will be displayed below the form.
 

To choose a patient, select the patient's name, this will fill in the Add Patient form with the selected patient's details that are stored in EMIS.
 

 

Step 4

Please check all the patients’ details are correct.

To save the new patient, click the 'Save' button.

When adding a new patient into INRstar you are able to automatically retrieve the patient’s demographical information stored in INPS Vision.

Check INPS Vision is open and that you are logged in.

In INRstar navigate to the ‘Patient’ tab using the navigation bar in the top right hand corner. 

 

Click the ‘Add Patient’ tab.

 

To search for a patient within INPS Vision, you need to enter either the patient’s NHS number, Family Name, Given Name or Date of Birth or all four criteria.

Click the 'Search Vision' button.

The matching patients will be displayed below the form.

 

If your search criteria returns too many results the interface may time out. If this happens, enter more specific search criteria, for example a NHS number.

 

Choose a patient by clicking on the patient's name, this will fill in the ‘Add Patient’ form with the selected patient’s demographics that are stored in INPS Vision.

 

Check all the patient’s details are correct and add any missing details and optional information, such as the patient's A/C Clinician.
