...applied to clinical documentation
Here comes a perfect coin-tossing introduction to my upcoming sequence on clinical documentation. I came across this on Dr. Voice’s excellent blog. It’s part of one hilarious questionnaire developed by Joe Boyce (MD - CIO/CMIO at Heartland Health, St. Joseph MO) for the currently developing Medical Informatics Board Certification. Here is question #10:Documentation – which of the following groups are most likely to complete their notes at the point of care?
- ED physicians with Scribes (assume the ED physicians still enter the room)
- Orthopedics with voice recognition (assume your orthopods have evolved to speaking)
- Internal medicine docs with a laptop and selection of branching templates via telemedicine. (assume your network will remain stable for 15 minutes)
- Residents with iPads, Bluetooth headsets, Kinect 3D mapping, and cell phones (assume they have not done a startup and retired already)
