We usually have them sign at the end of their appointment but it may get forgotten to do - the update may have been done. If it's been a year, I figure you probably need to get the signature, but if you got it at the beginning of their appointment and they think of something they want to add, will you need to get another signature. I guess, what triggers the need to sign the medical history.
From what i'm understating as long as the "Medical History recorded on"
date is the same as the current date, the earlier signature and edits are
okay. If it's a new day or the date changes, a new signature will be
needed for changes.

Thanks for that information. That may help us in our current dilemma.
