Out-Patient Clarification vs request to request to screen?
We know that we can prospectively (prior to visit), concurrently, or retrospectively submit a CDI clarification, if we meet the criteria.
In the out-patient world, there is also a whole quality component; foot exams needing to be done, eye exams, A1C captures..etc.
Is it appropriate to request the provider do a screening for a medical condition?
Screening of an at risk patient requested.
This patient has known DM II. Please perform an annual foot exam to determine the patient's status and if there are any sign/symptoms of neuropathy or PVD. Please treat/manage and document as appropriate based on your findings.
