Are you planning to undertake some chart abstraction projects? This can be a complicated process so it’s important to take a moment to understand what you’re getting yourself into! Keep reading to learn more about chart abstractions.
What is chart abstraction?
Chart abstraction is the process of collecting information from someone’s medical records and transcribing the information into specific locations in the new HER. This is a manual data entry effort where clinically relevant data can be collected from a legacy system and manually entered into the new system. This not only makes patient data more readily available, but it also allows for faster decommissioning of a legacy HER system since there is less need to reference back to the older system. In addition, there is a decreased risk to patient safety as the information is easily accessed.
How can you be successful with chart abstractions?
Chart abstraction can be a difficult process, but there are certain steps that you can take to increase your risk of success. First, you should start the planning process early. This will help you determine the scope and budgeting scope. You should then identify key stakeholders that will be important in the decision-making process throughout. Then, you will need to determine the scope of the abstraction, including what data needs to be abstracted and who will do it. Next, determine who will manage the project and oversee the abstraction process.
