The "Checkout Interview" which is done for all outpatients through the Scheduling package, can now also be done through PCE. You are prompted to enter Provider (and to designate if Primary Provider), Service-connection status, CPT codes, Diagnosis, etc. You may also designate if the Diagnosis should be added to the patient's Problem List.
REMEMBER: Entering one or two question marks will provide help (including lists of acceptable CPT codes, Diagnoses) on how to respond to prompts. With functionality put in place by the Code Set Versioning project, only ICD and CPT Codes that are active for the encounter date and time will be available.
Steps to add a Checkout Interview:
1. Select Checkout Interview from the Encounter or Appointment List screen or from the Update Encounter screen.
