If you are doing a complete chart review, are they going to copy the complete chart? You don't just look at one or two pages, you have to check everything. Unfortunately, not all offices are the same. This would be a waste of time, effort, and money. You are using 2 people to do the job of one, and using up extra resources (paper, toner etc) when it's unnecessary. When we review the charts, we look from front to back, where is all the documentation located? If they only document on one page, no problem, have the office copy and send. BUT, I know of no office who documents an entire visit on one page, our offices have papers all over the chart that refer to a single visit. Also, what about the transport of copied charts, HIPAA is a major issue, I really wouldn't want my medical record being transported by someone to somewhere I didn't know about. That puts a major red flag out there for me, and with the red flag system in play, that's scary.
These are my opinions only, but I agree, it's a waste of manpower!
