    Default What is encounter for?
    What kind of encounter is this? This doesn't conform to any type of HPI that I've previously seen. This almost seems to be a preventie visit ... which doesn't need a formal HPI in any case.

    The HPI is supposed to be what the PATIENT says about the problem that brings him/her to the doctor for this visit. I might listen to an argument for "status of three chronic problems."

    Hope that helps.
