Originally the email field was added to the demographic table to track emails to send out newsletters from the clinic. Now that providers and patients have started using email to discuss care, the clinic needs to record that the patient has consented to using email for care.
Demographic table and the demographic ui
This field will be missing from the web services. Will create a new return type and end point.
Currently the clinics are documenting in the chart notes if the patient consents to email for care which is inefficient and error prone.
1. verify demographic record doesn't not have a consent record saved.
2. Select yes and update record.
3. Verify that Yes has been saved to the database.
Manual will need to be updated.
