How can I access a patient’s file in Malaffi for the first time? 

The patient would need to registered in the EMR system of your facility. Once this has been administered, Malaffi receives a registration message following which the system will execute matching the patient’s EMR record with the patient’s Malaffi record. The patient information can then be accessed by clicking on the link embedded in your EMR.

Why am I unable to see some or any data of my patients?

This could occur for a variety of reasons. 

First, reason being that the healthcare facility it is meant to come from hasn’t been connected to the Malaffi Network yet. Second reason being the facility might not be sharing particular data type to Malaffi. Another reason could be that the EMR system of the particular facility does not have the capacity to configure and share that specific data set with Malaffi. 

Furthermore, if demographic details have been entered incorrectly in yours or any other EMR, this may prevent the matching of the EMR record with the patient’s Malaffi record and you may not see all the data for your patient.
