Use the Search function at the top left to search for anything including patient name, location, etc. Your search criteria appear in blue. The list of patients is then limited to show only records that meet your criteria - for example, a list of all patients from a particular location.
Sorting and filtering records
Patients are automatically listed alphabetically. Click in the Given Name or Surname column to search solely in these columns. You can also filter by location – sort locations alphabetically by clicking the column; search for specific locations by clicking in the column and typing the location in the search box.
To search for a specific word in a particular column, click in the column heading and type the word (which now appears in blue). The list is then filtered to show only patients who meet the criteria. For example: 1. To search for all patients with the given name John, click in the Given Name column and type John. Only patients whose first name is John appear in your list. 2. To see a list of only current patients, click in the Status column and type 'current' to filter your Patient List to search only for current patients.
If your patients list is showing only a few of your patients and not your full patients list, you have entered a search term in the search field and the Patients List is showing only those patients that meet your criteria. Delete the search term and all the patients appear in your Patients List. Watch this video to see how to solve this for all your different types of lists.
Scrolling through pages
You can scroll through all the pages of your Patient List by clicking through the page numbers at the bottom right of the patient table. Click first to go to the first page of records, and last to go to the last page of records.
Changing the view
You can change how this page appears in a number of ways and HealthKit dynamically remembers your view preferences based on the computer you are using. Click Choose Columns to add or remove columns shown. Move columns by clicking on the column and dragging it to where you want the column to be. Click the Results per Page picker to select the maximum number of records you would like to see per page.

Exporting your Patient List to MailChimp
You can export your HealthKit patient list to MailChimp to create newsletters and mail-out campaigns. Login to your MailChimp account and access the API keys by clicking in the Extras section, which is found under Account. Click the Create a Key button to create an API key and copy the key.
On the settings page of your HealthKit, click the Edit icon to the right of MailChimp. Paste the API key, then click the Enabled box and Save. HealthKit exports your patient list which appears in your MailChimp List. This can take several hours if you have a large patient list.
You can check the syncing status of your patient list by running a patient report in HealthKit.
