Thread: ROS from Chief Complaint

    Wink ROS from Chief Complaint

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm new to auditing and one of the Physicians I'm working on typically dictates all of his HPI & ROS in 1-2 paragraphs under the the heading of Chief Complaint. My question is this: is it ok to take HPI & ROS info from these paragraphs?

    Thank you!!

    Yes. I have some providers that dictate one lump paragraph. Others use the SOAP format. I ususally use highlighters for lengthy dictations so that I can keep track of what areas I credit for each section.
