It's true that after three positive consecutive readings of high blood presure, HTN is diagnosed, but it is ultimately the job of the physican to confirm it and not us. If only high blood pressure is mentioned w/o any sign of confirmation in HPI, PMI or anywhere else in medical record, we must not code HTN. If the patient has a history of HTN and final dx states only HBP, we can code HTN.
