Editing notes after signing

Post by sam-I-am » Mon Aug 10, 2020 6:00 am

Is it appropriate to allow editing of patient notes after signing, but before the window is closed? After signing, but before closing window, additions or deletions can be made without it showing on the audit trail.

We consider this acceptable because the notes and signature are not committed to the database until the OK button is clicked.

It is possible, though, to change tooth numbers

I'm following up to let you know that while changing the tooth number will not invalidate the note signature, an enhancement to audit trail logs has been made that will be available in versions 20.3.43 and 20.4.20. In these versions, changes made to the procedure date or treatment area of a completed procedure will be listed in the log text of the audit trail entry that is created when the procedure is edited.
