Relevant Clinical Conditions (.RCC) Update
A complete and accurate list of all clinical conditions is critical to represent the complexity of care at Stanford. Two actions will get us there:
1. Add the SmartPhrase for relevant clinical conditions (.RCC) in admission (H&P) and discharge (DC Summary) notes. This week, .RCCADMISSION use is 40% of Admission and 60% (improving!!) of Discharges. SHC goal is 80%. Click here and scroll to “Documentation Tips and Tools” to see performance by department and by attending.
2. Respond to all Documentation Clarification queries rapidly. Queries are intended to make it as simple as possible for you to clarify your patient’s condition.
For questions and feedback please contact: Michelle McCormack, Director Clinical Documentation Improvement, MMcCormack@stanfordhealthcare.org.
