The goal is for 100% accuracy in the problem list.
The data above indicates that clinicians are not always adding new diagnoses to the patient’s problem list. The diagnosis of depression, in particular, was only added 74% of the time. This may be, in part, to the reluctance of clinicians to formally document this particular diagnosis due to the possible repercussions from insurance companies. The number of clinicians documenting asthma as a diagnosis, on the other hand, was much better at 95%. The other three diagnoses fell in between these two extremes.
The data was discussed with clinicians at a clinical staff meeting on February 15, 2012.
