Healthcare documentation has evolved to include clinician-created documentation. Whether the provider uses pick lists, smart links, speech recognition, or traditional typing, it is imperative that this documentation be audited for quality and accuracy. Spectrum
Health in Grand Rapids, MI, recognized this need and immediately began transitioning former medical language specialists into healthcare documentation analysts. They have developed robust resources, comprehensive training and mentoring programs, as well
as production and quality expectations for their team. Spectrum Health is now committed to having a 100% credentialed workforce.
The document integrity analyst’s role in ensuring patient safety and identifying/reporting/correcting errors that put patients, providers, and healthcare systems at risk will be discussed. Critical errors that have the potential to harm patients, as well as those errors that compromise the quality of documentation, will be outlined.
All aspects of establishing a document integrity program will be highlighted, to include the essential objectives of the auditing process and the use of one comprehensive marking resource. The risks of unmonitored documentation influence patient safety, financial impact,
compliance issues, and legal consequences. Proactive provider education and relationships with other departments within the hospital system ensure the integrity and accuracy of the patient record and are pivotal to a successful auditing program.
