I recently worked in a facility that utilized Physicians Assistants. Billing issues fall under the same guidelines I believe. They worked where ever we needed them, but mostly with Fast Track stuff. We utilized an EMR called Doctors Choice (www.ERChoice.com) that had the capability of attaching the "attending note" to the "extended provider" record. We then met the requited criteria for max billing. What was nice was the electronic white board would flag all records that were being documented on by the physicians assistants, and we could quickly move to that area for attending exam, review and documentation without a "burp" in traffic flow or a loss in revenue.
