Thread: Review of Systems ROS) Template

    Default Review of Systems ROS) Template

    AAPC: Back to School

    I'm working with a practice that requested sample templates or documentation of how the clinicians do an ROS on each patient. Historically, they were just stating that a 10 point Review of Systems was performed but it was not documented what those 10 systems were...

    I know that the physicians need to define which 10 body systems/organs they will review and document in the patient’s record, and I understand that the 10 systems/organs identified by the physicians should be written up as a guideline or procedure that can be provided to an auditor if requested, but can anyone provide me with a screen shot of an EHR template or pdf of what your providers are using to document their ROS?

    Thank you in advance for your help!
