There has to be a way in either scenario you mentioned to suggest that though 
these were the dd, final diagnosis is this. And once final diagnosis is 
reached, the dd should not be listed as health issues. Don't you think so?

Is the above assessment


multiple items placed in a single soAp row, in a single visit (in which case 
this information would print as part of printing the narrative, but it would 
not print as part of the list of Health Issues.

Or is it a *series* of diagnoses, provisionally

        1 (at the first encounter)

        2 (at the second encounter)

        3 (at the third encounter)

where it is the most recent of the above (#3) that would be contained in an 
Assessment row?
