The term "relevant" leaves too much room for interpretation by insurance companies and external auditors and should not be recommended to capture a "full" or "14 system" review. I recommend questioning the providers how many systems they are reviewing and if they tell you they review all 14 systems advise them to discontinue the use of the term "relevant" based on my above statement. If they are not doing a full 14 point review then they should list out each along with the positives or negatives for each.
I've also seen providers use the statement "essentially negative" and have had to educate them to discontinue in the manner explained above.
Hope this helps! -Dawn
