How to eliminate patient misidentification and improve patient safety, satisfaction, and medical record efficiency
Time: 1:00pm Eastern
Since hospital funding is based on the patients served, it is important to capture accurate information about them right up front on admission, before it floats through a system of clinical documentation and into the medical record. An accurate medical record can serve as a communication tool for all healthcare stakeholders (including the patient and payer), and can help healthcare organizations prevent medical errors and reduce the time and effort required to rework recoverable claim denials.This webinar will examine the root causes of patient misidentification and their impact on patient safety, care efficiency, and the hospital’s bottom line.
