How do I edit a report?

Information on editing a report (including addendums and corrections).

To make your own edits:

  1. Sign up for Electronic Signature (mandatory at PHSA,  optional at FH, PHC, VCH)
  2. Sign up for Front End Speech Recognition (optional for qualified clinicians)

Prior to the report being transcribed (not available in the PCIS)


Please contact Transcription Services with your edit/corrections.

After the report is transcribed (available in the PCIS)

If your report has a typographical error, missing information, addendum, or an error impacting patient care, please:

  • Please print the report.  Note the error (please print legibly) on the report and initial & date to authenticate your correction. The fax number can be found can be found on the HIM intranet site. (Hospital network access required.)

  • If you have used eSig or FESR and the report has been signed, you would need to follow the same process of faxing in the changes.  After the changes have been made, the corrected report will appear in your inbox for re-signature.

Adding an Addendum

To add information to an existing report, you will need to dictate an addendum to the report. This can be done by stating the original job number (if possible) and all patient identifiers.

Addendums can only be added to a report by the originating author.  "Addendums" by another dictating author will be created as a separate report.
