Coding resolved conditions from a discharge summary

  1. Default Coding resolved conditions from a discharge summary

    We are getting some mixed information when coding rounds. Should we be coding resolved conditions from a hospital discharge summary. These are considered outpatient visits.

  2. Default
    Resolved conditions are not coded in the outpatient setting, unless the patient is on a medication for said resolved condition (ie: finishing up rest of antibiotics but ear infection is resolved). We use a follow-up code on resolved conditions that are no longer being treated or worked up.
