Passing data in java between panels

I am writing a GUI that has many panels that are displayed through a controlPanel class.  I have one panel that gets half the information for a new patient (called newPatientPanel) and then a new screen is called (called newPatientContPanel) to get the remainder of the new patient data (too much data to get to fit on one panel).  Currently I can get the data entered on the newPatientPanel by creating many different get<VariableName> methods in newPatientPanel and having a corresponding set<VariableName> in the controlPanel and calling the set<VariableName> in the newPatientContPanel.  It works, but I'm thinking there has got to be a better way.  Can anyone point me in a better direction?  Thanks!

I think this could be simplified by making a custom object that you then pass around. Then you could either access the data directly in this object, or you could make get,set methods for each thing.
class PatientData
{
    ArrayList<String> someArray;
    String someName;
    int otherData;
}
