Entry and Exit Codes

Enrollment entry and exit codes are now part of Code Set management. All of the existing codes which were present as part of the Entry and Exit code pages have been copied to the EntryCode or ExitCode Code Set lists so that individual codes can be marked as inactive when no longer needed.

  • There will be no new button to add Entry/Exit codes.

  • There will be no submit button to update the sort order of the Entry/Exit codes.

  • Code, Meaning, sort order fields will be read-only on edit Entry/Exit code pages.
