    Default Auditing ROS and acceptable phrases
    Can anyone tell me if the following is acceptable?

    REVIEW OF SYSTEMS: 10 of 14 systems reviewed and are negative except noted above.

    "Above" is talking about Cheif Complaint. Going back to my class days I remember that if the doctor didn't document specifically we can't assume what systems he is talking about.

    What's your thoughts?

    No that is not acceptable! CGS put it like this: "when using the "negative" notation, always identify which systems were queried and found to be negative" in a recently published article called Tips for Preventing Most Common Evaluation and Management Service Coding Errors. Sorry I do not have the link, I just have the printed article.

    I am also getting the same instruction from private insurance carriers.

    Hope that helps

    Umm, that's a negative from me as well. What systems were reviewed? How would you know that none of those negatives were 'pertinent' negatives, without knowing which systems are being referred to? If he doesn't feel like taking down the ROS by himself, he should consider having the ancillary staff do it for him. Then all he needs to do is show that he reviewed/confirmed the information, by adding a notation at the bottom like "Symptoms reviewed as listed above" or something like that... Hope that helps!
