There are various ways to add patients to your dispensary to get them started on their wellness journey. Practitioners can import multiple patients at once with the import tool or add patients individually without a treatment plan. There are also multiple self-sign-up options available that allow eager patients to start ordering right away while reducing the administrative burden on dispensary staff members.
Note: Self-sign-up options work best for dispensaries with open catalog permissions where prescriptions or recommendations aren't required to explore and order products.
Importing patient lists
Already have a list of patients ready to add to your dispensary? Batch import them by using the import patients tool! Check off the optional invite email during the import process to direct your patients to sign in right away. See the Importing patient lists support article for more details and instructions.
