Adding Notes to the Patient Ledger


(Sherwin Gaddis) #1

Does anyone know if there is a way to add administrative notes to the patient ledger? Some practices are using the patient ledger instead of invoices or as an invoice. But they are wanting to add administrative notes like in the image.
Is there a way to do this?

Hi @juggernautsei,
Reg adding Administrative notes, when will this be added? Is it when the encounter is being billed or at the time of encounter creation?
If the Administrative notes will be added at billing then we can add a column to the billing table and store the result or we can add a field in encounter screen and add administrative notes there. Then we can retrieve the data to patient ledger.

The administrative note will be added at the time of being billed. Not the encounter creation. So add a column to the billing table please sir.

Hi @juggernautsei,

For creating a column in billing table run the following query,
ALTER TABLE billing ADD COLUMN administration_notes TEXT DEFAULT NULL;
in the MySQL Terminal or in PhpMyAdmin.

Additionally, some code changes need to be done for storing/retrieving the administration notes in Billing.
