When implemented, the applications below will allow users of these three code systems to select codes based upon a date that an event occurred with the Standards Development Organization (SDO)-established specific code that existed on that event date.

Encounter

Each patient meeting with a provider, during an appointment, by telephone, or as a walk-in. A patient can have multiple encounters for one appointment or during a single visit to a VAMC.

Encounter Form

A paper form used to display data pertaining to an outpatient visit and to collect additional data pertaining to that visit. The AICS package is automating encounter forms.

Episode of Care

Many encounters for the same problem can constitute an episode of care. An outpatient episode of care may be a single encounter or can encompass multiple encounters over a long period of time. The definition of an episode of care may be interpreted differently by different professional services even for the same problem. Therefore, the duration of an episode of care is dependent on the viewpoints of individuals delivering or reviewing the care provided.
