Split-share critical care documentation in Epic

  • 1.  Split-share critical care documentation in Epic

    Posted 02-07-2022 10:57
    Dear colleagues,
    Our compliance department is questioning the use of 2 separate progress notes in Epic for split-share critical care billing as opposed to using the "attest function" but not attesting the note, rather putting the attending's note in the box such that if the chart gets audited by the insurance carrier, only one document would need to be submitted. I have indicated that one of the takeaways from the SCCM presentations, in particular from Mr. Carpenter was that the 2 documents had to be physically separated. Does anyone have any further insight into this?
