The limited use of digital ink in the private-sector primary care physician's office. (1/1069)

Two of the greatest obstacles to the implementation of the standardized electronic medical record are physician and staff acceptance and the development of a complete standardized medical vocabulary. Physicians have found the familiar desktop computer environment cumbersome in the examination room and the coding and hierarchic structure of existing vocabulary inadequate. The author recommends the use of digital ink, the graphic form of the pen computer, in telephone messaging and as a supplement in the examination room encounter note. A key concept in this paper is that the development of a standard electronic medical record cannot occur without the thorough evaluation of the office environment and physicians' concerns. This approach reveals a role for digital ink in telephone messaging and as a supplement to the encounter note. It is hoped that the utilization of digital ink will foster greater physician participation in the development of the electronic medical record.  (+info)

Comparative hospital databases: value for management and quality. (2/1069)

OBJECTIVES: To establish an accurate and reliable comparative database of discharge abstracts and to appraise its value for assessments of quality of care. DESIGN: Retrospective review of case notes by trained research abstractors and comparison with matched information as routinely collected by the hospitals' own information systems. SETTING: Three district general hospitals and two major London teaching hospitals. PATIENTS: The database included 3905 medical and surgical cases and 2082 obstetric cases from 1990 and 1991. MAIN MEASURES: Accessibility of case notes; measures of reliability between reviewers and of validity of case note content; application of high level quality indicators. RESULTS: The existing hospital systems extracted insufficient detail from case notes to conduct clinical comparative analyses for medical and surgical cases. The research abstractors at least doubled the diagnostic codes extracted. Interabstractor agreement of about 70% was obtained for primary diagnosis and assignment to diagnosis related group. These data were sufficient to create a comparative database and apply high level quality indicators designed to flag topics for further study. For obstetric-specific indicators the rates were comparable for abstractors and the hospital information systems, which in each case was a departmentally based system (SMMIS) producing more detailed and accessible data. CONCLUSIONS: Current methods of extracting and coding diagnostic and procedural data from case notes in this sample of hospitals is unsatisfactory: notes were difficult to access and recording is unacceptably incomplete. IMPLICATIONS: Improvements as piloted in this project, are readily available should the NHS, hospital managers, and clinicians see the value of these data in their clinical and managerial activities.  (+info)

Evaluation of audit of medical inpatient records in a district general hospital. (3/1069)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate an audit of medical inpatient records. DESIGN: Retrospective comparison of the quality of recording in inpatients' notes over three years (1988, 1989, 1990). SETTING: Central Middlesex Hospital. MATERIALS: Random sample of 188 notes per year drawn systematically from notes from four selected one month periods and audited by two audit nurses and most hospital physicians. MAIN MEASURES: General quality of routine clerking, assessment, clinical management, and discharge, according to a standardised, criterion based questionnaire developed in the hospital. RESULTS: 1988 was the year preceding the start of audit in the hospital, 1989 the year of active audit with implicit and loosely defined criteria, and 1990 the year after introduction and circulation of explicit criteria for note keeping. There was a significant trend over the three years in 21/56 items of the questionnaire, including recording of alcohol intake (x2 = 8.4, df = 1, p = 0.01), ethnic origin (x2 = 57, df = 1, p = 0.001), allergies and drug reactions (x2 = 10, df = 1, p = 0.01) at admission and of chest x ray findings (x2 = 8, df = 1, p = 0.01), final diagnosis (x2 = 5.6, df = 1, p = 0.025), and signed entries (x2 = 11.3, df = 1, p = 0.001). Documentation of discharge and notification of discharge to general practitioners was not significantly improved. CONCLUSIONS: Extended audit of note keeping failed to sustain an initial improvement in practice; this may be due to coincidental decline in feedback to doctors about their performance.  (+info)

Computer analysis of qualitative data: the use of ethnograph. (4/1069)

Ethnograph, a code and retrieve software program for computer analysis of qualitative data, was utilized to assist in analyzing the content of in-depth interviews and focus group data. This program requires basic computer hardware and is fairly easy to use. The main advantage of the program is easy access to data dealing with a particular issue and easy retrieval of text for analysis and illustration. However, to get the maximum benefit from this program, documents need to be structured In the format suitable for the software. Among the difficulties encountered were the absence of on-line documents dummy coding, lack of options in printing facility and the tendency for the program to hang whenever there was a printing error.  (+info)

Improving the quality of health care through contracting: a study of health authority practice. (5/1069)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate approaches of district health authorities to quality in contracting. DESIGN: Descriptive survey. SETTING: All district health authorities in one health region of England in a National Health Service accounting year. MATERIAL: 129 quality specifications used in contracting for services in six specialties (eight general quality specifications and 121 service specific quality specifications) MAIN MEASURES: Evaluation of the use of quality specifications; their scope and content in relation to established criteria of healthcare quality. RESULTS: Most district health authorities developed quality specifications which would be applicable to their local hospital. When purchasing care outside their boundaries they adopted the quality specifications developed by other health authorities. The service specific quality specifications were more limited in scope than the general quality specifications. The quality of clinical care was referred to in 75% of general and 43% of service specific quality specifications. Both types of specification considered quality issues in superficial and broad terms only. Established features of quality improvement were rarely included. Prerequisites to ensure provider accountability and satisfactory delivery of service specifications were not routinely included in contracts. CONCLUSION: Quality specifications within service contracts are commonly used by health authorities. This study shows that their use of this approach to quality improvement is inconsistent and unlikely to achieve desired quality goals. Continued reliance on the current approach is holding back a more fundamental debate on how to create effective management of quality improvement through the interaction between purchasers and providers of health care.  (+info)

Using a multidisciplinary automated discharge summary process to improve information management across the system. (6/1069)

We developed and implemented an automated discharge summary process in a regional integrated managed health system. This multidisciplinary effort was initiated to correct deficits in patients' medical record documentation involving discharge instructions, follow-up care, discharge medications, and patient education. The results of our team effort included an automated summary that compiles data entered via computer pathways during a patient's hospitalization. All information regarding admission medications, patient education, follow-up care, referral at discharge activities, diagnosis, and other pertinent medical events are formulated into the discharge summary, discharge orders, patient discharge instructions, and transfer information as applicable. This communication process has tremendously enhanced information management across the system and helps us maintain complete and thorough documentation in patient records.  (+info)

Improving clinician acceptance and use of computerized documentation of coded diagnosis. (7/1069)

After the Northwest Division of Kaiser Permanente implemented EpicCare, a comprehensive electronic medical record, clinicians were required to directly document orders and diagnoses on this computerized system, a task they found difficult and time consuming. We analyzed the sources of this problem to improve the process and increase its acceptance by clinicians. One problem was the use of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9) as our coding scheme, even though ICD-9 is not a complete nomenclature of diseases and using it as such creates difficulties. In addition, the synonym list we used had some inaccurate associations, contributing to clinician frustration. Furthermore, the initial software program contained no adequate mechanism for adding qualifying comments or preferred terminology. We sought to address all these issues. Strategies included adjusting the available coding choices and descriptions and modifying the medical record software.

Vaccine storage in the community: a study in central Italy. (8/1069)

Maintaining the vaccine cold chain is an essential part of a successful immunization programme, but in developed countries faulty procedures may occur more commonly than is generally believed. A survey was conducted in a health district in central Italy to assess the methods of vaccine transportation and storage. Of 52 primary vaccination offices inspected, 39 (76.5%) had a refrigerator for vaccine storage but only 17 (33.3%) kept records of received and stored doses. None of the seven main offices selected for monitoring had a maximum and minimum thermometer and none monitored the internal temperature of the refrigerator. Moreover, other faulty procedures, such as the storage of food and laboratory specimens in vaccine refrigerators and the storage of vaccines on refrigerator door shelves, indicated that the knowledge and practice of vaccine storage and handling were often inadequate.  (+info)

Comorbidity is an important adjustment measure in research focusing on outcomes such as health status and mortality. One recurrent methodological issue concerns the concordance of comorbidity data obtained from different reporting sources. The purpose of these prospectively planned analyses was to examine the concordance of comorbidity data obtained from patient self-report survey interviews and hospital medical record documentation. Comorbidity data were obtained using survey interviews and medical record entries from 525 hospitalized Acute Coronary Syndrome patients. Frequencies and descriptive statistics of individual and composite comorbidity data from both sources were completed. Individual item agreement was evaluated with simple and weighted kappas, Spearman Rho coefficients for composite scores. On average, patients reported more comorbidities during their patient survey interviews (mean = 1.78, SD = 1.99) than providers had documented in medical records (mean = 1.27, SD = 1.43). Higher

Coding professionals have most, if not all, of the requisite skills to become CDI professionals. They have advanced level knowledge of coding guidelines and concepts, understand the revenue cycle process and compliance issues, and know health record documentation requirements. They are aware of quality issues and the impact that accurate documentation has on them, use multiple software tools every day, and use critical thinking skills when reviewing records for coding. The two areas that some coding professionals may need to expand upon are clinical skills and the ability to talk one-on-one with providers.. When CDI professionals are doing concurrent reviews of records they are searching for clinical clues that might reveal a diagnosis that hasnt been documented or might need more specificity. They review not just the physician documentation, but also nursing, ancillary (i.e., lab, radiology, physical therapy), and other reports to see the full picture of that patient. A thorough understanding ...
As the weather cools, the heat is on coders to properly report the high number of pneumonia cases they tend to see during the winter months. Its not always easy, considering the changing face of pneumonia testing and treatment and the number of documentation requirements for coding. In particular, cases without a smoking gun, such as pneumonia without a positive chest x-ray, can be particularly challenging for clinician and coder alike. Lolita M. Jones, RHIA, CCS, and Joy J. King, RHIA, CCS, CCDS, address both the clinical aspects and the guidelines for pneumonia coding to help coders correctly report pneumonia during the long winter months and beyond.

Coding for HIV. For inpatient coding, the physician must state the diagnosis, and if not clearly documented, there is an opportunity to query for clarification. For outpatient coding, it is often challenging for coders to determine if the patient is just HIV + (Z21) or if the patient has ever had an HIV-related illness (B20). As of now, most outpatient coders do not have the capability to query for OP coding. If the coder is unable to determine which the patient has based on the documentation provided, we should default to asymptomatic, rather than assigning the patient a diagnosis of AIDS.. Opportunistic Infections (OIs). Healthy immune systems can be exposed to certain viruses, bacteria, or parasites and have no reaction to them.

Medicare and many ancillary insurance providers will pay for an annual wellness exam both male and female patients. The wellness CPT codes are billed as age-appropriate codes, and are designated as new or established. The criteria should be clearly noted within the examination of the patient. New patients are those that have not been seen by the same provider/practice within a 3 year time-frame. Established patients are those that have been seen by the same provider/practice within a 3 year time frame. As we transition to ICD-10 not only do we need to know if a patient is new or established, we also need clear documentation if the examination was for a general medical examination WITH or WITHOUT abnormal findings now will be required information for a coder to choose the most appropriate ICD-10 diagnosis ...
by Doreen V. Bentley The transition to ICD-10-CM/PCS has certainly added another layer to the clinical documentation improvement (CDI) puzzle. While some providers may decide to tackle documentation and coding challenges through coder and physician education alone, the audit piece is perhaps just as important, since delayed claims submission due to physician queries directly affects cash flow and, therefore, a hospitals operating income. Simply put: Coding delays can negatively impact hospital cash flow. We want to be proactive by submitting accurate claims and receiving reimbursement in a timely manner in order to maintain all hospital operations, says Gwen S. Regenwether, BSN, RN, a clinical documentation specialist at Denver Health and Hospital Authority, a 525-bed hospital. While this can, admittedly, be a frustrating and time-consuming process, identifying financial vulnerabilities by taking a proactive approach is necessary to minimize any financial disruption due to the transition

PROJECT SUMMARY Asthma is the most common chronic illness among children. In our preliminary study, we discovered significant variations in the volume and quality of clinical documentation on asthma in electronic medical records (EMRs) between pediatric residents and pediatric faculty. For example, although pediatric residents documented much more extensively than the pediatric faculty on asthma-related histories consistent with a diagnosis of asthma, the residents were less likely to make an actual diagnosis of asthma than their faculty counterparts. This variation in documenting asthma-related events in EMRs has two important implications: one is a proficiency issue related to the training of pediatric residents in achieving clinical competence in asthma care and documentation; the other is a data quality issue, which impacts the secondary use of EMR for downstream analyses. At present, little has been reported on the secondary use of EMR for residency training. The primary goal of this ...

Regarding fair market value of service fee categories mentioned: Manufacturers will have an impossible task at documenting fair market value since every wholesaler and chain warehouse charges different fees for distribution, centralized warehousing, stocking new product, fomulary inclusion, trade show participation (product discounts), pre-inventory buy-in discounts, new DC/store openings, service level / bar code penalty fees, etc. Note that all of which are generally NOT passed on to their RCP customers. If Manufacturers turn to 3PL providers for fair market value documentation, again, the fees charged for receiving, ambient storage, order fulfillment, invoicing, contract/ chargeback administration, inventory management, etc. all vary significantly. In conclusion, I believe that the documentation requirement of fair market value is extremely unrealistic and only the specific supply agreements between the manufacturer and the wholesaler, chain, GPO, or RCP should be required to support ...

By 2016, the government reported that more than 97 percent of hospitals and 70 percent of office-based physicians participating in the incentive program were using electronic health record systems. Both Stanford Health Care and Stanford Childrens Health had transitioned by the mid-2000s, adding functions over subsequent years.. Christopher Sharp, MD, chief medical information officer for Stanford Health Care, said a crucial part of the process was convincing doctors to embrace the far-reaching change. We called it driving adoption, he told the audience at the EHR symposium.. Though few wish to return to paper files, the medical worlds transition to electronic records generally has been rocky. Some of the struggle comes simply from learning to navigate a complicated new software system and related programs. But other challenges arise from increased - and changing - documentation requirements from payers and the government, along with decreased opportunities to delegate.. Adding to the ...

The TB Alliance is working with the U.S. CDC TB Trials Consortium and the AIDS Clinical Trials Group of the U.S. NIAID, NIH, to identify biomarkers for TB, which can dramatically speed the time and decrease the cost of clinical trials for new TB drugs.. In 2010, the TB Alliance received a grant from the United States Food and Drug Administration to establish a Consortium for Tuberculosis Biomarkers (CTB2), comprised of the TB Alliance, CDCs TB Trials Consortium (TBTC), and NIAIDs AIDS Clinical Trials Group (ACTG). By collecting high-quality patient specimens in late-stage TB drug clinical trials where they are linked to detailed (anonymized) clinical documentation, CTB2 will enable discovery and qualification of biomarkers to speed clinical development of improved TB treatments for both drug-sensitive and multidrug resistant-TB.. Biomarkers of drug effect are biological features or substances that can be used as indicators of treatment effectiveness. For example, HIV/AIDS drug development was ...

Introduction. Assessment is the first standard of nursing practise (American Nurses Association 2010). Adequate assessment is essential in guiding interventions and evaluating the effect of care. Assessment includes gathering, validating and analysing subjective (symptoms) and objective (signs) information about a patients health status. Assessment directly influences the nurses plan of care, (Taylor et al.2011:559) and is necessary for continuous provision of quality care. It is therefore important that nursing assessment is communicated accurately and stored effectively in the patient record.. In a British study, Rothman et al. (2012) found that substandard documentation of nursing assessments was associated with increased in-hospital and post-discharge mortality. Initial chart audits of documentation at the CURE Childrens Hospital of Uganda (CCHU) revealed that the quality of the documentation of nurses assessments was poor. Nursing leadership therefore undertook to work with nurses to ...

A project post-mortem is a process used to identify the causes of a project failure (or significant business-impairing downtime), and how to prevent them in the future. This is different from a Retrospective, in which both positive and negative things are reviewed for a project. The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) refers to the process as lessons learned. Project post-mortems are intended to inform process improvements which mitigate future risks and to promote iterative best practices. Post-mortems are often considered a key component of, and ongoing precursor to, effective risk management. Post-mortems can encompass both quantitative data and qualitative data. Quantitative data include the variance between the hours estimated for a project and the actual hours incurred. Qualitative data will often include stakeholder satisfaction, end-user satisfaction, team satisfaction, potential reusability and perceived quality of end-deliverables. Successful analysis of project estimate ...

2.2. Non-Expansion Policy If the total size of a compressed payload and the IPComp header, as defined in section 3, is not smaller than the size of the original payload, the IP datagram MUST be sent in the original non-compressed form. To clarify: If an IP datagram is sent non-compressed, no IPComp header is added to the datagram. This policy ensures saving the decompression processing cycles and avoiding incurring IP datagram fragmentation when the expanded datagram is larger than the MTU. Small IP datagrams are likely to expand as a result of compression. Therefore, a numeric threshold should be applied before compression, where IP datagrams of size smaller than the threshold are sent in the original form without attempting compression. The numeric threshold is implementation dependent ...
