Proposal and Goals:
We propose to create a standardized electronic procedure note that will replace all documentation for bedside procedures without sedation.
◦Makes notes legible and easily identified
◦Allows uniform tracking of metrics necessary to identify outcomes from a procedure (blood loss, specimens, post-procedure studies, complications)
2.The procedure note will be created in such a way as to allow specialized procedures to be added over time with minor customization to improve physician/nursing work flows and increase efficiency
◦Allows procedures to be sorted and tracked by type
◦Will be constructed to allow attaching CPT codes to patient charts via documentation
3. We propose using this procedure note to create a running database of all bedside procedures
◦Can be utilized by existing software (Qlik) to query all procedure notes to create large anonymized patient lists
