I dont know if there are "exact" documentation rules for pacemaker analysis. However; like any diagnostic test, you need to document what was done. This is what is required for our reports.
Type of pacemaker, number of leads; single or dual chamber. Who did the interrogation and interpretation? If you have a rep come in to do the interrogation and the MD is not in the room with the rep, the MD can only bill for the interpretation. Your MD must be in the room with the rep to bill for both the analysis and intrepetation. The report can read: I interrogated the pacemaker with the assistance of John Doe....etc. If programming was done the settings must be indicated in the report.
