Remember that the wellness visit is a data gathering visit only. There is no diagnosing occurring during the wellness visit. The nurse (or other medical professional) is gathering information from the patient. That information is being analyzed by WellTrackONE and its proprietary health risk assessment (HRA) engine and the WellTrackONE report is produced for the physician. At THAT point, the physician begins problem-focused care, follow-up testing, etc that may lead to a diagnosis.
