Charting and Dictations

With the increased requirement for more complete medical record management, physicians have to spend more time writing, dictating, and using computer prorams to produce accurate and adequate reports to support appropriate billing.

If the Mohs PA has seen the patient with the Mohs Surgeon, most if not all of the documentation can be left to the Mohs PA.

All reports should be reviewed and signed by the Mohs Surgeon. In some cases the Mohs Surgeon may want to add a short additional note at the bottom of the Mohs PA note. This provides a complete and accurate report with very little time of the Mohs Surgeon.

I guess if there is nothing else for the Mohs Surgeon to do at the end of the day, they can either add more cases and be more productive, or go home early and sign the Mohs PA charts the next day.
