I took the test and I am a little confused when you are ready to pic new vs established. How do you figure it out if it doesn't tell you its a new patient or established. That is what I scored low in. What does Acute visit mean, does it have any indication if its a est or new.

Acute means Onset of when it happen. Such as Acute onset 1 say ago with Sore throat. It happen suddenly. Hope that makes sense. When I audit a chart, I look at several things, When the patient was last seen in office. If they dont have any previous visits, they would be a new patient, or if its been 3 years to the date of there last visit they would be new.
