Using PCE

Make Historical Encounter

You can create encounters for patient visits that occurred at some time in the past (exact time may be unknown) or at some other location (possibly non-VA). Although these are not used for workload credit, they can be used for setting up the reminder maintenance system.

NOTE: If month or day aren't known, historical encounters will appear on encounter screens or reports with zeroes for the missing dates; for example, 01/00/95 or 00/00/94.

Steps to use this action:

1. Change to View by Encounters if you are in the Appointment View.

2. Select the Make Historical Enc action at the Select Action prompt.
