The goal is to have a weight documented on 90% of active patient charts within a year of their most recent appointment.
Weights are not being obtained by the intake staff at the target of 90% - only 67% of the time in October 2011. Weights obtained by the clinician cannot be added to the VS reportable data once the intake staff have signed it off. A new encounter would have to be created to document the wt/BMI in a reportable form. Will report the findings and reminder of the goal of a weight on each chart at least yearly at the February Clinical Services meeting.
