    Default What does POOC stand for

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi everyone,

    I am coding for a labor & delivery triage for patient having preterm contractions @ 28 weeks. In the assessment is:

    1. Intrautering pregnancy at 28w 2d
    Fetal heart rate tracing is Category 1 = Normal.

    I am wondering what POOC stands for and can not find it anywhere. Please help!

    Thanks in advance
