Add and manage patient profiles in the Dashboard

Who is this for?

✓ Plan: SENSORA™ platform with Structural Murmur Detection

✓ Role: Program Admin, Clinician

You can use the Eko Dashboard to manage patient profiles and any recordings assigned to a patient. You can:

  • Create, edit, view, and archive patient profiles.

  • View any existing recordings for a patient on their profile.


Best practice

Create new patient profiles on the Dashboard for the program the patient belongs to. If you belong to multiple programs, make sure the patient’s profile is in the correct program.

If a new patient profile is created in the Eko App, then the patient won’t be assigned to a program or viewable in the Dashboard.

If a patient profile is created in the Eko App, then you can create a new patient profile in the Dashboard, then reassign the patient’s recording to the newly-created profile, which will be viewable in the Eko app.

Create a new patient profile from the Patients screen

To create a new patient profile, you first search for potential existing patients that may match the name or MRN of the patient you want to add. If there are matches, you can select to use one. If not, you continue with creating a new patient profile.

  1. On the navigation bar, click Patients.

  2. Click Create New Patient. The Create New Patient panel appears on the right.

  3. Enter either the first and last name, OR the MRN number to start the search.

  4. Click Search. The potential match results show.

  5. If there are no matches, click Continue Creating New Patient.

  6. Enter the patient information and click Save Changes.

  7. If there are matches, select the patient.
