Disable a doctor

To disable a doctor in Zedmed, you must make their profile unavailable so they are no longer visible and make their Zedmed login inactive. You will also need to check their appointments and results inbox.

Step 1: Reassign affected Results

Go to the Results Inbox and select the doctor's name in the User field to display that doctor's results. Any results will need to be reassigned to the appropriate doctors. Results for tests returned after the Doctor was disabled, will be returned to the patient's file and shown in the results inbox. 

 To learn more, see the Action Results guide.

Step 2: Reschedule affected Appointments.

Run the Appointments Report for the doctor to see who they have appointments with and when. Reschedule the affected appointments.

Step 3: Make the doctor's profile unavailable.

To update the doctor's profile:

  1. Go to Zedmed's Management tab.

  4. Under the Status section, remove the tick from Available.
  5. Select Close to save the change.
