Abstract

Recent analyses indicate that the ratio between total insurance policies paid out and those for damages for malpractice are 1:3. Bad organization of clinical records by doctors is among the main causes of this phenomenon. In fact, clinical records can be considered a public document as well as a means of verifying quality controls. Having precise procedures for the management of clinical records can be useful to demonstrate objectivity both in diagnosis and treatment choice--which can be very important in court cases. This paper illustrates some practical proposals for a correct organization and administration of clinical records.
