A primary-care physician and her partner, who have just opened their own practice, employ you as a medical assistant. You have been asked by one of the physicians to research information and recommend a quality-control procedure for completing chart audits for the practice.
The following information should be included:
â?¢Outline a possible procedure to conduct chart audits.
â?¢Describe the quality-improvement model that is to be followed.
â?¢Research and recommend associations that they may want to be affiliated with to keep themselves informed on health care standards.
The process of auditing charts is clearly explored in this case. References are also provided to further validate the findings.
