Session Description 

Auditing medical records in an EHR can be tricky and a bit overwhelming, especially since there is no voice for comparison. This webinar will touch on the auditing process, finding and documenting potential critical errors, and how to verify and compare information in the EHR (such as labs, medications, histories, and demographics) with the content of the document. Auditing requires an understanding of the patient’s story, not just reading the words in the document. Attention to details such as inconsistencies, wrong medical words, wrong dosages, demographic errors, and things that simply do not seem “right” will be discussed.


Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the importance of auditing medical documents (H&Ps, Consults, Op Notes, ED Notes) in an EHR to assess for accuracy of the record.
  2. Understand the definition of critical errors.
  3. Learn how to find and verify potential critical errors within a document.
  4. Navigate within the EHR to verify errors.
