Delinquent Medical Records Improving!

Tuesday, June 22, 2010 at 9:01:33 AM

The medical record delinquency rate dropped from 50% to 28% with the enforcement of suspensions for multiple records delinquent more than 30 days. Physicians, residents, and allied health are warned several times before suspension takes place. Fines will be enforced for multiple suspensions. It is hoped that when the backlog of records is cleared up, the electronic process will make record completion easier and quicker. Medical Staff are encouraged to notify the HIM Department when they will be away for any length of time to avoid being placed on the suspension list. Please contact them if you still have questions or require training.
