An effective charting process is important for physicians because it helps them get more out of their work. Your input and those from other stakeholders need to be recorded in the notes. This makes easy documentation and charting efficiency crucial in creating a congruent, transparent, and flourishing system.
There are so many things that you can do as a physician. Some you can implement yourself, and others are outside your control, but you can advocate for them. However, to create quick wins for you, your patients, and your critical team, focus more on what you can change.
Join the conversation with your host Dr. Ryan Stegink as he shares more on medical charting, why, where, and some of the things we need to change to improve efficiency in clinical workflows and, ultimately, wellness for medical teams.
