Addendum or Amend an Encounter

Amend encounters

Once an encounter has been signed, it is considered part of the patient's medical record and can't be edited directly. Any additions or corrections to a signed encounter are added as an amendment.


 Encounter amendments can't be released to the billing product. If an amendment contains changes to the encounter coding, the changes will need to be communicated to billing staff directly.

You are able to amend an encounter from three areas; the Today's Appointments tab, Unreleased Encounters or within the patient dashboard.
