According to AHIMA, â€śDocumentation is considered cloned when each entry in the medical record for a beneficiary is worded exactly like or similar to the previous entries.â€ť I believe CMS follows this philosophy as well.
In order for cloned records to be accurate, the provider would have to read the chart line by line, and reevaluates it, to insure that it is up to date and truly reflects the patient's current status.
