Import Patient Demographics
Kareo provides an easy way to import your patient demographic data. The import process involves preparing a data file, uploading it, matching field labels, and validating the import results.
Step 1: Prepare your import file
To upload patient demographic data, you must first prepare the import file.
Step 2: Import your file
When your file has been created, you'll be ready to import the patient demographic data into Kareo Clinical.
Review Patient Demographics File
To properly import your patient data, your data categories must match the Kareo categories. This ensures your patient data is populated in the correct sections of the patient chart.
Step 3: Correct patient data with errors
After each import, the Import Patient Demographics page displays a table with import history information on import date/time, a link to a list of successfully imported records, a link to a list of any duplicate records, and a link to a list of any errors.
Note: Large imports taking more than two minutes to process are marked as "Pending" in the table until the import is complete.
If you’ve confirmed that your demographic data file conforms to our required specifications and are still having problems, contact our Support Team for further assistance.
