I'm curious what your view is on this...
I know that you can achieve an extended HPI if the provider documents the status of as least three chronic or inactive conditions. Here's my question. Let's say, for instance, the physician is somewhat vague in the HPI section. However, at his assessment plan, the provider documents detailed information about the chronic conditions, the medication(s) and their status'. Would you credit the physician since it's not in the HPI section but he does document it nicely at the end of the note. (Looking for your input Tessa.....)
