The Patient Story: 7 Benefits of Narrative Dictation in an EHR Environment
A well-documented medical record is essential to providing quality care and should tell a complete patient story. It should be documented expeditiously, but thoroughly, to enable physicians and other healthcare professionals to make timely decisions based on all available patient information.
