Setting the Medical History Expiry Interval

You can set how often you wish your patients' medical history questionnaires to be marked as 'Out of Date'. Once a medical history is considered to be out of date, the red Medical History marker will show at the top of their records and a warning indicator will show in the patient's portal when the patient logs in.

This expiry interval is set in the same area that you set and edit your medical history questions. Settings > Treatments and Plans > Medical History Questions.

At the top right of your medical history questions page, set the interval at which you wish the patients' questionnaires to be set as out of date.
