Pediatric Audit Tool

    Default Pediatric Audit Tool
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone have a good audit tool to help bill/document/audit a pediatric doctor? I am using just a general E/M audit sheet. I struggle with some of the quirks of pediatrics, though. I just want to make sure I am coding my doctors visits correctly.

    If you have a good audit tool that you use, would you be willing to share?
    Thanks, Dianna Peltier, CPC

    Default 1995 guidelines
    We just use a standard 1995 guidelines audit tool. We do find that it is a bit easier to meet the exam standards on 1995 in pediatrics than 1997 standards.

    We also spend a LOT of time educating physicians about the need for complete histories ... including newborns!

    I wish there were some general guideline that would absolve the need for the full ROS for pre-verbal patients (Can you picture the physician asking Mom "have you noticed any signs of depression in your infant?"). But there isn't, so we have to still meet all the guidelines for the level of service.

    Hope that helps.

    I combined different audit tools to finally get one that works for me. There are lots of tools on these websites, hope you find them helpful.
