You need to properly setup the product accounts, as well as the
payment terms for the party.

So, imagine you want to charge the hospitalization charges related to
the bed 310 for 1 day for Ana.

1) You will need to have the bed, and the product associated to it. (
Health -> Configuration -> Health Centers -> Beds ). Make sure you
place appropiate expenses and revenue accounts for the bed (product).

2) Create the appropiate payment term for the party (Ana) in the account tab.

3) Generate the service and the invoice associated to it.
Health -> Health Services -> Health Services
- Enter the description and the product associated to the bed
- Click on the "Invoice" checkbox
- Click on the action "Create Health Service Invoice".

After that, you should have your new invoice in Financial -> Invoices
-> Draft Invoices

Hope it helps !

Best regards
