Healthcare record guidelines apply to hospitals, clinics, doctors’ offices, labs, blood banks, Medicare, Medicaid and others. The Health Care Module provides record series regarding patient and lab records, claims, medical staff education, training, pharmacy, radiology, facilities, and operations.
The federal government regulates healthcare through the Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, Public Health Service and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Also, states and territories have regulations for pharmacies, Medicaid, licensing, hospitals, clinics, labs, patient records, and a wide variety of other areas.
The module offers a default general record series that can be expanded by selecting from dozens of pre-defined records, all linked to retention periods and legal research. Specific activities can be chosen and jurisdictions with no healthcare business excluded. Finally, all the record series’ subjects, text, and retention can be customized to meet any unique requirements.
