I agree. 95 exam guidelines are easier, at least in my opinion, for Neurology/Neurosurgery audits. For example: When using the 97 exam (Neurological) , you must have at least one bullet from the cardiovascular area and every bullet from the rest of the systems for a comprehensive exam. When using the 95 guidelines, you must have at least 8 organ systems for a comprehensive exam. Typically, my neurosurgeons examine...Constitutional, eyes, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, skin, neurologic, psych, lymphatic. Now...I'm using the comprehensive exam as an example since the majority of our patients are surgical patients and this type of exam is medically necessary. At times, my orthopods use this template. Normally, their patients condition is more centralized to one area but when the patient has other comorbidities, there are times it's medically necessary to conduct a comprehensive exam.
