Your Step-by-Step Guide
to Optimizing Your Clinical Documentation Workflow
Clinical documentation captures the patient story through every health care encounter. Documentation accuracy is essential to fostering high quality patient care, demonstrating compliance with quality measures at the facility, and supporting financial outcomes. When done incorrectly, neglected, or pushed simply to downstream systems, the documentation workflows can become more complex and costly to correct, pose significant regulatory repercussions, and create havoc with a healthcare organization’s ability to operate, communicate, and support its stakeholders.
In our e-guide, we explore the seven-steps that can help you remove barriers and streamline your existing documentation processes for improved efficiencies and usability.
Here are a few key takeaways:
- Analyze each step in your documentation workflow to identify waste and pinpoint potential improvements.
- Leverage automation and standardization as much as possible to reduce errors and manual tasks
- Develop comprehensive policies to set the stage for accountability with documentation processes and quality standards.
With the implementation of our step-by-step guide, you can boost quality, reduce documentation costs, enhance functionality with existing or upgraded technology to workflows, and maximize efficiency.
