Abstract

Enhancing the clinical utility of medical chart work is a useful goal of quality assurance programs. A series of interventions at this facility demonstrated that medical record requirements can be modified to maximize the record's utility to the clinical psychiatrist. In this way, writing in the chart can foster professional autonomy while effectively meeting accountability needs.
