Special Open Door Forum:

For Durable Medical Equipment, Orthotics and Supplies (DMEPOS) Dietary Related Items

Templates and Clinical Data Elements (CDEs)

May 31, 2018

2:00-3:00 pm Eastern Time

Conference Call Only

 

PCG will host a Special Open Door Forum (SODF) to allow physicians, provider and supplier professional associations, and/or all other interested parties to provide feedback on the DMEPOS Dietary Related Clinical Templates and CDEs that are posted on the CMS.gov website. The printable clinical templates and suggested CDEs listed below describe the data elements that CMS believes would be useful in supporting the documentation requirements for coverage of certain DMEPOS Dietary Related items as follows:

Parenteral Nutritional Therapy:

1. Order,

2. Progress Note, and

3. Lab Test Results.

Enteral Nutritional Therapy:

1. Order, and

2. Progress Note.

The Clinical Templates and CDEs are available on the CMS.gov website which can be accessed through the link below:

https://www.cms.gov/Research-Statistics-Data-and-Systems/Computer-Data-and-Systems/Electronic-Clinical-Templates/DMEPOS-Templates/DMEPOS-Templates.html

Providers and IT vendors can choose whether or not to use the printable clinical templates and/or the suggested CDEs. The suggested CDEs aren't a form, but a tool that IT vendors can integrate into electronic health record (EHR) systems to create prompts to assist providers with their medical record documentation for Medicare purposes. The templates and CDEs are intended to be a helpful guide but every section may not apply to all patients’ services and/or DMEPOS. Providers can choose the information or CDEs that do apply. Once completed by the physician or other practitioner, the resulting documentation would become part of the medical record.

Feedback and questions on our drafts can be sent to: clinicaltemplates@cms.hhs.gov. We look forward to your participation.
