If a facility issues "addendum" or "comparison" reports, do these new reports have to be included in the medical audit?

Policy Guidance Help System logo

If, as a result of the "addendum" or "comparison" reports, the final assessment category of the case is upgraded to "Suspicious" or "Highly suggestive of malignancy", facilities must include it in the medical outcomes audit. If, as a result of the "addendum" or "comparison" reports, the case is downgraded to "Negative", "Benign" or "Probably Benign", this information must be entered for the original case, and the facility must attempt follow-up to determine if a biopsy was performed in the interim.
