    quick question: for hospital or nursing home notes... I usually have 4-5 dx in the assessment and plan section and some are stable and other need minor tweaks while others are new... so the "status of 3 chronic conditions" has to be 3 separate conditions that are stable or if I have 6 diagnoses and three or four of them are stable or do no require a change in current management can qualify as "status of 3 chronic conditions"? Thank you

    I use chronic to indicate diagnosed like ckd, htn, DM, chf etc known before admission and that have relevance to the patients condition. Always make sure to document the status (stable, worse, better) in your documentation and document your management plans (no change or other).

    thanks... so I can use three diagnoses for both purposes... to meet extended HPI and also as diagnoses to get points for MDM... if you know what I mean...?

    I do as long as the conditions have relevance to the care of the patient.

Changing Observation or Inpatient CPT® Codes To Match Hospital Billing

    seems like every patient that needs admission to the hospital is observation until proven otherwise... It's getting to be very annoying and difficult of course. For some reason the ER physician is never held accountable. So frustrating...
