Thanks for your question ! There are two ways:
a) Using the current hospitalization model
b) Using the Page of Life for Hospitalization (available since 3.4)

If you use the current workflow for hospitalization, you need to change
the date after confirming both the admission and discharge. When
confirming the admission you will see the discharge information.

The hospitalization workflow is designed for the transactional context,
that is, real life, daily operations of the institution, so many dates
and fields are automatically taken.

To me, the best way to enter past medical information is using
option "b", via the Pages of Life (transaction POL).

In the case of hospitalization, you would do the following:
1) Enter transaction POL on the GH client
2) Create a new Page of Life for the person
3) Enter the person, date, relevance ...
4) Select the "Medical" context.A new field will show up with values
   for the Medical context
5) Select "Hospitalization"
6) Enter the hospitalization details.

We keep integrating more and more daily processes with PoL, and the
hospitalization will be included too :)

Hope this helps !

All the best
