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. This webinar examines the root causes of patient record errors based on patient misidentification and their impact on patient safety, care efficiency, and the hospital’s bottom line.
Viewers will learn:
- Industry statistics around patient misidentification
- The causes and consequences of patient misidentification
- How to improve patient satisfaction and medical record efficiencies across the continuum of care and through the billing cycle
- Solutions for positive patient identification
