How to Add or Edit a Skin Test
When you choose Skin Test under Update Encounter, you will also be prompted to enter the Topic, Level of Understanding, and Encounter Provider.
When a Skin Test is entered, the user will be prompted for diagnoses which are associated with the mapped CPT code. If the diagnoses have not already appeared in the encounter, the user will be prompted for additional information to qualify the diagnosis such as modifiers, comments, and SC/EI classifications.
NOTE: A Clinical Coordinator can change the items or categories available to choose from for Skin Tests through the PCE Table Maintenance Menu. If you wish to help define the Skin Test list, check with your Coordinator.
