Multiple Charts

If you have access to multiple patients (for example, if you are a guardian and a patient, or a guarantor on multiple patients, etc.), you will see tabs for each patient across the top of the Portal. 

If the name is in purple, that is the patient whose information you are viewing, while black indicates that you are not viewing that patient's information.

If the patient has a carrot in their tab, it means that they have multiple charts. The purple text indicates the most recent, active chart. In this case, black text indicates completed charts.
