AHDI and AHIMA Release QA Best Practices for Clinician-Created Documentation

In July 2014, AHDI and AHIMA released "Clinician-Created Documentation: Reinstating Quality Assurance Programs to Safeguard Patients and Providers." This document provides a standardized approach to measuring, reporting, and improving documentation for patient safety and documentation accuracy when clinicians are responsible for document creation.

The accompanying Resource Kit provides the tools needed to create and implement a quality assurance program in healthcare organizations. It's a set of explanatory and operational tools that are intended to be adapted by users to their own needs.
