    Twins? Triplets? Or more? When adding these new records, make sure to mark ‘Birth Event Outcome” and “Birth Order" on the Patient Identification screen.

    We are seeing a large number of multiple births being erroneously merged and it is very difficult to unmerge these types of records.

    To prevent problems, remember to enter birth outcome and order when a record is created!
