Data Points for ordering imaging for NG tube placement

Postby JJones » Tue Aug 21, 2018 8:30 pm

Hello!

Thank you in advance for any help for this medical decision making question.

One of our coders is wondering if a data point for ordering imaging to confirm placement of a NG tube would be correct?

Thank you,

J Jones

Hi there,

This is absolutely correct., Review and/or order of radiological tests counts as a category of data.
