Medical Record Integration Checklist

The online version of the November-December practice brief “Migrating from Paper to EHRs in Physician Practices” includes a checklist that can help physician practices migrate all the appropriate data from an individual patient paper record into the EHR. Each record or data element should be expanded upon with descriptions based on the practice’s definitions, the location of the information in the paper chart, and where this information should be indexed in the EHR. The form should indicate time frames for back-entering each element (e.g., last physical and pertinent clinic notes, last chest x-ray, last mammogram).
