A PFSH and ROS can be credited from prior documentation assuming the documentation indicates what PFSH/ROS was reviewed and for audit's sake, where they reside (location and date of the originals). "No change from ROS in office note dated 12/1/2009", for example.
As for the change in TIN, the patient's would still be established by CPT rules. The patient has to have not been seen by YOU or a member of your group practice of the same specialty in 3 years. It doesn't matter where.
Here's an article that illustrates this point from the perspective of an MD joining a different group practice (not exactly the same, but enough the same to support my position):
When you change practices
Consider this scenario: Suppose you leave the practice where you have been working for a number of years to join a new group in a nearby community. Some of your patients transfer their care to the new practice and see you within three years of their last visits. You would report these encounters using an established patient code because, although you are practicing in a new group, you have provided professional services to the patient during the last three years. Note that whether the patient has transferred his or her medical records to your office and how long you may have had those records is irrelevant. The amount of time thatâ€™s passed since your last encounter with the patient is the determining factor.
