Risk Management and Patient Safety Conference Series - Good and Bad Medical Record Documentation: From Claims Management to Optimal Patient Care Outcomes
Inadequate or inaccurate medical record documentation increases the risk of medical errors and legal liability. Accurate and timely medical record documentation facilitates diagnosis and treatment, communicates pertinent information to other caregivers to ensure patient safety, and supports optimal care delivery and patient outcomes. In claims management, the medical record is the only way to prove that the treatment was carried out properly. Oscar J. Cabanas, J.D., will examine the role of medical record documentation as an important medical-legal function in risk management.
