XU*8*27 - New Person File Patch
As part of the October 1, 1996 mandate, VAMCs must collect provider information. The provider information reported is the "Person Class" defined for all providers associated with ambulatory care delivery.
To comply with this requirement, all VAMC providers must be assigned a Profession/Occupation code (Person Class) so that a Person Class can be associated with each ambulatory patient encounter by October 1.
Patch XU*8*27 has been developed to provide functionality that will enable you to assign Person Class information.
