Every fiscal year the Clinical Nutrition Manager creates a proposed chart review schedule for Outpatient Dietitians to follow (S. Kulshrestha, personal communication, March 9, 2017). For instance, if the outpatient chart review schedule is: Marcia Monica Stephany Gail Marcia; then Marcia will review Monica’s patients charts for three months, Monica will review Stephany’s and so on. Every month the peer assigned for the audit will review a different patient’s chart. The Assessment Diagnosis Intervention Monitoring and Evaluation (ADIME) audit for Outpatient Dietitians performed at the Miami VA is intended to follow the same competencies, regulation checks and audit procedures required by the Joint Commission (S. Kulshrestha, personal communication, March 9, 2017). The ADIME audit patient chart reviewing includes documentation on assessment, nutrition diagnosis, expected outcomes and reassessment (Appendix A).

The health coach performs multiple activities that currently require the coach to manual pull data from the electronic medical record, EHR. With this redesigned approach the health coach would no longer complete chart reviews as the EHR that is currently used throughout the clinics have a patient manager section that includes all of the information that is being manual extracted for the chart reviews. Also, instead of the health coach manually pulling data, such as who has been in the ER five or more times in the past year, set up a report that will run automatically on a monthly basis for the coach to review. Finally, the health coach is currently pulling the data on hospital discharges manually on a daily basis. In this process the health coach opens all of the charts of the patients that were discharged the prior day to determine who the patients primary care provider (PCP) is and
The key to providing high-quality healthcare is to have a complete depiction of a patient’s health record. Collecting comprehensive patient data is vital in forming a complete picture of a patient’s health record. It can help for improvements, and measures it for the intended use; for cognitive support to help integrate the data; to integrate evidenced-based practice guidelines and research; to build patient portfolios and for physician diagnosis; for continuing education for knowledge and treatments; to involve patients and their families into medical decision making in order to ensure accurate and consistent data; and to generate reliable information. To ensure that there are useful, reliable, and resource-efficient quality data in healthcare,
On January 13th 2017, at 15:46 Supervisor Tatiana Kania performed a screening audit. While Security Officer Ruth Gonzalez was on main screen S/S Kania walked away from the desk and came back with her cell phone inside of her hood. Once coming through the metal detectors, S/O Gonzalez instructed her to secondary screening. At secondary screening the S/O instructed her to take out everything from her pockets and began to wand. She was able to find the cell phone in the hood area. I specifically chose this area because with observation I noticed that some guards do not fully go up to the neck on the back side while wanding.
