Charting in the room can help you, as a physician, stay on track, improve patient care, take less work home, and make a difference in your workflow. It’s possible, and you can make it happen by charting in the room, finishing notes in the room, and coming prepared to go from room to room, patient to patient.
Leveraging electronic communications will indicate things have been done, empowering the staff to take care of some things more quickly.
The principles of charting in the room work for all physicians, even those in procedural specialties or primary care. These principles, however, are part of continuous growth and improvement.
Join the conversation with your host Dr. Ryan Stegink as he shares more about how charting in the room can improve clinical efficiency, patient care, and physician wellness.
