I would ask them to supply you with the documentation that supports this requirement. I am not overly familiar with Joint Commision guidelines but I can't find anything that even comes close to that.
From an E/M audit stand point, in order to get credit for the ROS on a separate form the provider needs to mention the form by name and date completed. It doesn't even have to be completed for that visit, it could be a previous visits ROS form.
I would be interested to see any documentation that supports this type of requirement. I have never heard of anything that states they have to put down the time of day they reviewed a form. This is a bit extreme and will not go over well with my providers if it is in fact true.
