1997 Documentation Guidlines for Evaluation and Managements Services
These guidelines represent the most current set of rules for the documentation of evaluation and management services (E&M codes) as set forth by Medicare and the AMA. These standards have also been adopted by many other public and private payers. These guidelines also include the general standards and requirements for medical documentation. A thorough understanding of these guidelines is essential to any healthcare provider who creates a medical record and/or is involved in the billing for medical services. These are the rules that were followed and implemented in the creation of DocuForms medical chart notes.

When you review these guidelines alongside DocuForms products you'll truly get an appreciation of the structure, form and content of our products.
