Using PRISMA to Capture Missing Patient Records

At Florida’s Professional Health Care of Pinellas, the PRISMA health information search engine has become a valuable resource for capturing patient histories and ensuring quality care. Lead Quality Specialist Dawn Wright discusses how her practice used PRISMA to recover records for a woman with early dementia who had moved from out of state and could not provide all the information the practice needed. With some 900 patient charts to review each week, Professional Health Care relies upon PRISMA to improve workflow efficiency and let providers concentrate on patient care rather than administrative work.
