    Hi,
    Can i convert a patient into a contact?

    Or maybe there is an alternate option for my situation:

    I’m creating a new patient (born 2 months ago). I want to create a contact to whom I can send the invoice to. This is of course the mother or the father. I duplicate the patient (the baby), change the needed stuff, save and close this patient, add invoice address of the parent to the baby’s patient-data.

    But then the parent is a patient, and not a contact. 😕

    While it is possible to convert a Contact -> Patient, it is not possible to convert a Patient -> Contact.

    The reason is that when you create a PATIENT record, various additional database structures are created to store additional patient-based information about the person. The best workaround would be to use the copy/paste feature to copy over the address fields.

    Thanks.
