11:00 am – 11:45 amMedical records integrity: An organizational approach

Having a complete medical record is every HIM’s goal – yet somehow this often seems unattainable. Are portions missing? Has everything been dictated or signed? Have antiquated terminologies been used? Who is responsible for ensuring the completeness and integrity of the medical record is preserved? The answer is far broader than most HIM professionals envision.
