Thanks again for the infographic, has some interesting stats
Your most welcome, The infographic has done its job in sending a message that we need to change how we are processing referrals. Look forward to your future comments.
I worked as a compliance analyst, reviewing patient records for tests, data, and prescribing practices for the state. I've looked at several cases, with hundreds of charts for each. The problems abound. Several MDs found themselves under investigation for poor practice because diagnostic results and appropriate referrals were not located in charts and handwriting indicating the appropriate medical reason for certain prescription regimens were completely illegible. I think the move to EHR is absolutely necessary because it protects MDs and other practitioners just as much as it protects the patients we are serving. Sure, it costs on the front end, but it is well worth the investment when considering the dollar value of time and lives lost or ruined due to medical errors and missing information.
