what is clinical documentation

What is Clinical Documentation?

Clinical documentation in a patient's record includes any and all documentation that relates to the care of the patient during the patient's stay or encounter.


In the inpatient setting, some of the important pieces of the patent’s clinical documentation include:

Patient History & Physical

Progress Notes


Procedure Reports

Anesthesia Reports

Pathology Reports

Radiology/Nuclear Medicine Reports

Cardiology Reports

Consultation Reports

Notes Provided by Nursing Staff

Discharge Summary

the move toward electronic medical records emrs and critical care information systems ccis

The move toward Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) and Critical Care Information Systems (CCIS)

EMRs are meant to facilitate more efficient work processes for staff by automatically gathering physiological data, allowing medical records to be accessed both at the point-of-care and at terminals throughout the ICU.  

A CCIS is a computerized patient charting system that has been specifically designed for use in intensive care, providing a physician with access to a central data repository containing patent information including, demographic data and physiological data retrieved from bedside monitors.

Bumps in the Road: Physician Note Taking in the ICU

Some of the problems identified as occurring during the note taking process are as follows:

Collecting relevant and correct patient information

The EMR systems are too rigid and time consuming to navigate

Information requested by the physicians is not known during the ‘rounds process, requiring after-the-fact lookup and documentation annotation

Repetition of patient treatment and observation information in different sections of the EMR

clinical documentation in the remote icu model

Clinical Documentation in the Remote ICU Model

With respect to clinical documentation sophisticated ICU clinical information systems (CISs) must provide the remote care team with access to all relevant patient data, including lab test results, medication lists, progress notes, and bedside flow sheet documentation.

The patient’s EMR must be imported from the hospital information systems (eg, lab results, pharmacy) and ICU devices (bedside monitors, ventilators), and can be used by ICU nurses and physicians for establishing/tracking care plans, charting patient data, and generating progress notes.
