Coding from Diagnosis List
I've posed this question to a few individuals but wanted to open it up to the forum.
We went live with Cerner on 10/1 and I was just wondering what everyone does with the diagnoses on the diagnosis list in your EMR. Currently, they look "ok" and are somewhat valid, but I can see the list getting very cluttered down the road, especially with frequent flyers.
Does anyone have a policy or guidelines on when your facility chooses to code from the diagnosis list? I was thinking that if the diagnosis meets criteria for a diagnosis, then we should be able to pick it up but Coding Managers have differing opinions. Currently, I am on the fence about what to do.
I appreciate any and all comments.
