High-quality health records to support patient care
On-demand recorded 11 Mar 2019
High-quality health records are critical to the provision of safe, effective and personalised patient care. They facilitate good communication with other healthcare providers, and are linked to practice accreditation and incentive programs. Despite this, maintaining health records is not always considered a priority for busy general practices.
In this webinar, GP Dr Steven Kaye reviews the features of high-quality health records, and discusses the importance of coding essential clinical data. Strategies for the effective use of GP clinical information systems are also detailed.
