    Default Inpatient Consult

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can a specialist called in for an Inpatient Consult use the History already documented in the patient charts or should he/she do her own History?

    I believe he can use the one that is there as long as it is up to date and he does his own addendum to the the note.
