We utilize forms the patient updates when they come in to the office for follow up visits which contain ROS and PFSH information. The Guidelines state "A ROS and/or a PFSH obtained during an earlier encounter does not need to be re-recorded if there is evidence that the physician reviewed and updated the previous information." I am trying to insist all my physicians personally sign and date the form as "evidence." However, one physician is insisting on utilizing a signature stamp. He states he uses it for all his scripts and orders, why can't he use it for the ROS form. Can anyone give me a web site that addresses the need for a personal signature rather than a signature stamp? I feel a stamp can be used by anyone, but he wants documentation that proves he must personally sign the form.
