    "Reviewed medical records. Information as per hpi"

    Is this enough to count 2 points for data reviewed?

    It depends - what does the HPI say? If the review of records *IS* his HPI, then no I wouldn't.

    I'll wait for you to get back to us on what it says...

    But in general, stating "reviewed old medical records" is not acceptable, as the provider must summarize his findings as well.

    AR is correct. The MD needs to elaborate.
