The Sample Data

There are around 10 sample patients you can enable in drchrono, but we are working on getting our sample data set more flushed out. This is in the works. One of our future goals is to roll out a more flushed out sample data set for educators.
One thing to note, we don’t wipe out any of the patients that your create. So if you create a sample patient, that patient is in the platform until you inactive them.
To turn sample data on once you signed up for your free account, you can find below and our help center.

Setting Up Professor (Physician) and Student (Staff) Accounts

For professors who are holding a class around EHRs can think of themselves as the physician. So they would create the primary account and then they would set up the students as staff under the physician account. That way you can manage your students and configure them as you like.


If you want as well, you can have every student create a physician account so they can do their own mock simulations.
