This module explains how accurate and up to date health summaries contribute to the quality of care provided to patients, and how to efficiently enter patient health information into the clinical software.Relevance to General Practice
A complete health summary assists the patient’s GP and other health care providers the patient may be referred to. Up to date health summaries reduce the risk of inappropriate patient management and need to be developed on a progressive basis.
Recording health summary information in the correct section of the software using clinical coding allows the information to be accessed readily by other health professionals within the practice and reduces the risk of inappropriate management of patients’ health.
There are around 125 million general practice consultations provided annually, with computers now used by approximately 96 percent of GPs for clinical and administrative purposes. Improvements in recording health information will benefit patients and care providers.
The goal of this activity is to provide the skills required to accurately and efficiently record health summaries enabling the provision of high quality patient care.
