When the Edit charge page opens up, click on the patient field, and enter either the patient name or MRN# to search the patient. As you type the patient details, a list of patients appears as a drop-down list (see Image 1). Select the Patient.
Once the patient is selected, the Edit charges page for the respective patient appears as in Image 2.
The list of all the encounters for a patient will be displayed in the Encounters list on the left pane. Image 3 is a sample list of Encounters for a patient.
