Let's review some standard rules for how treatment episodes behave within Avea.
Multiple Treatment Episodes
Patients can have multiple treatment episodes under the same Practice. This occurs when a patient is discharged from treatment, and then later returns to the same practice for a new treatment episode.
Important: Treatment episodes for the same practice cannot have overlapping dates. The patient must be discharged from one treatment episode before another can be added under the same practice. If a patient discharges and then readmits at a later date, do not continue recording their services under the first treatment episode. Make a new treatment episode starting with the new admit date.
Multiple Practices and Treatment Episodes
If there are multiple practices under one organization, a patient can have treatment episodes under every practice they are admitted to. Treatment episodes within different practices can have overlapping dates.
Admit/Discharge: It is important to accurately record Admit/Discharge dates and related information in the Intake > Admit/Discharge tab of the Treatment Episode so claims go out correctly.
