Add a Contact

Prior to adding a contact, it is recommended that you search for the contact and review potential matches to ensure you are not creating a duplicate. The contact may already be in the system, but not associated with the facility or domain in which you are working. If you search for and find the contact is already in the system, you can simply link them to the facility. If the contact is not yet in the system, you can add them and then link them to the facility.

Tip: If you want the contact to have access to eICS, you must enable their account by providing a username, a phone number and an email address.
