How to use lookup tag on getting the lastEncounter with Date | Html Form Entry

Hello folks ,

Am trying to check if a patient has ever encountered a form fill-out and found this :point_down:t6:,4eaf-85e3-87cfad31bfa6'%2C%20%24encounterDate)"/>

`First MDR-TB Encounter: <lookup expression=` `"fn.latestEncounter('ee95dbbf-5aec-4eaf-85e3-87cfad31bfa6', '2021-06-30')"` `/>`

`The method also accepts a velocity variable may be a date or a string`

`First MDR-TB Encounter: <lookup expression=` `"fn.latestEncounter('ee95dbbf-5aec-4eaf-85e3-87cfad31bfa6', $encounterDate)"` `/>`

However wanted to know if the encounter type talked about here


is the formEncounterType or any conceptId

also $encounterDate is it just a variable or its defined within the Html form Entry

So does this turn out to be the most recent encounter Date

Yes, you can use to get current date of an encounter.

thanks @sharif have tried to use $encounterDate and $encounter.encounterDatetime but these were returning ’ ’ for my latestEncounter

So Ended up using $visit.startDatetime and this seems fine thank u brother :slight_smile:

lookup expression="fn.latestEncounter('ee95dbbf-5aec-4eaf-85e3-87cfad31bfa6', $visit.startDatetime)"/>
