OneContent Patient Folder leverages document management software that gives physicians, HIM personnel and other hospital staff anytime, anywhere access to review, analyze, code and complete electronic charts in their electronic medical records system. It allows HIM departments to become "virtual," giving staff the ability to work remotely while letting authorized hospital personnel view patient records electronically. In addition, it provides physicians with secure online access from their home, office or at the hospital, further streamlining clinical and HIM workflow.
“Doctor shopping” is a term that describes patients who use at least two and often multiple physicians in their attempt to obtain an adequate or increasing supply of controlled prescriptions. They often “role play” with a number of different well-intentioned but perhaps naive physicians to obtain multiple prescriptions, which are used personally or sold to support other drug habits. This type of behavior is most common in emergency department settings, where staff may not know the patient. Frequently, drug-addicted patients present “after hours” and claim to be from “out of town.”
