If your practice has the Departments feature (read more about this here), you can move the patient from department to department easily!  

On the iPad:

In Editing mode of the patient's flow sheet, tap "Edit Info":

Then tap on the department the patient is currently in (ie Surgery) and choose the department's whiteboard you wish to transfer them to and tap "Done":

The patient will now show up on the new department's whiteboard!
