Physicians and providers should report all diagnoses that impact
the patient's care, and ensure that these diagnoses are accurately
documented in the medical record. This includes the main reason for
the episode of care, and all co-existing, acute or chronic conditions,
and pertinent past conditions that impact clinical evaluation and
therapeutic treatment.
