Transcript

  • 1. Medical Records 2 Chapter 33
  • 2. Paper/paperless/paper light
    • Traditionally medical records were all manually transcribed in the patient file
    • As practices have become more computerized and computer programs more sophisticated, practices have followed human medicine and are capturing more data in the medical record without the use of paper files
  • 3. Paper/paperless/paper light
    • Paperless applies to a practice that manages all of its information on one computer system
    • Currently, most computerized practices are considered to be paper light (lite) since they still generate tons of information which is not stored in the computer
  • 4. Paper/paperless/paper light
    • Examples of this are:
      • Radiographs
      • Consent forms
      • Faxes
      • Consent forms
      • New client/patient registration forms
      • Referral letters
      • All the practice logs
      • Medical records from other practices
  • 5. Paper/paperless/paper light
    • With the advent of better more affordable technology:
      • like scanners
      • CD-ROM technology
      • signature capture
      • We can become more paperless
  • 6. Paper/paperless/paper light
    • Electronic media storage is safer than printed media storage
    • It must be backed up and stored off site
    • CDs can store thousands of documents
    • On line external site back can store unlimited amounts of information
  • 7. Paper/paperless/paper light
    • Legalities of computerized record storage
      • To date, no paperless case has gone to court, so it has not been tested
      • Medical records must be protected from alteration after the fact
      • Proof of electronic medical record security can be provided by having the backups kept at an off site data storage facility.
  • 8. Paper/paperless/paper light
    • A comparison can then be made by the court to ensure both copies match which would ensure that the information contained in the medical record has not been altered and corrupted
    • In any system, all entries must be initialed by the person making them
  • 9.
    • All of the new technology costs the practice large sums of money initially, but in the long run it provides a great return on investment
    • Current technology includes
