Webinar Description

We all get it – no one picks a career in EMS because they love writing reports. EMS providers vastly prefer performing a skillful resuscitation to documenting it. Nevertheless, complete and accurate documentation is essential – for the patient, for the provider, for the agency, and for the profession. It’s our job as EMS administrators and Quality Management personnel to do all in our power to ensure this occurs.

During this webinar, we’ll discuss using various tools to implement and proactive strategies to drive thorough and accurate charting.  We’ll also discuss post-hoc strategies for identifying where documentation has fallen short.
