That's basically it. They just need the current "state" of each of the three conditions. Stable, controlled, and uncontrolled all fit that category. You just need a simple descriptive word to show what's going on with the patients diagnoses.
The second statement you have wouldn't work because it doesn't show any specific "state" that the condition is in. The pt could be on meds, but they might not be effective (or too effective - causing hypotension in a pt with hypertension).
I'm not sure where more literature can be found outside of the 97 guidelines though.
Hope this helps!
