If there is no chief complaint, or no acute or chronic condition, auditors may not even continue with the record and negate its value altogether.
Show Notes

If there is no chief complaint, or no acute or chronic condition, auditors may not even continue with the record and negate its value altogether, according to nationally recognized coding and documentation authority Terry Fletcher, who is currently uncovering errors in an ongoing review of more than 1,000 records. During the next edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays, she will share her findings in the second of a four-part series on auditing issues in physician documentation.
