Documentation serves many important purposes in health care. Chief among them is care team communication about decision making and continuity of care. Documentation also serves as evidence of the care provided in the event of a malpractice claim. An analysis of Constellation® claims reveals that insufficient or incomplete documentation contributes to 15% of claims and accounts for 22% of costs.

This webinar outlines best practices for documentation to improve communication, continuity of care and defense of claims.
