The answer: Yes.

If the report indicates an episode of vfib took place and the patient was shocked, go ahead and submit the diagnosis at the time you see the patient and address the issue.

Make it your business to review every defibrillator interrogation on every one of your patients with an implantable defribillator.

It’s an enormous boost to your capitation and shouldn’t be missed.
