Webinar: Comprehensive Patient Visit Summaries Include Patient Follow Up: Office Practice Processes Close the Loop and Improve Patient Safety

We will discuss this office practice process and why it reduces risk and improves patient safety.  Providing a comprehensive patient visit summary assures the patient leaves the practice with not only the verbal discussion regarding their current health status and planned treatment, but a written summary for ongoing reference. The inclusion of a follow up appointment, or having a process that ensures another appointment will be scheduled in an appropriate timeframe, reduces the risk of a delay in ongoing patient care and their health maintenance.

Objectives:

  • Explore the patient safety risks associated with a lack of a comprehensive patient visit summary
  • Review the components of a comprehensive patient summary
  • Identify where failure points in the process may occur
  • Provide best practice recommendations
