The Importance of Accurate Documentation

With the tax deadline looming on the horizon, many of us are scrambling to gather receipts, forms, and other important documents in an effort to get the most benefit out of our returns.  The importance of accurate documentation really hits home when you understand that a single receipt can make the difference between owing money and getting a refund.        
In a broader sense, it is said that “If it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen”.  Nowhere is that more true than in the Healthcare and Human Services Industries.  Accurate documentationhelps to improve patient monitoring, reduce errors in treatment, and promote overall good clinical practices.  From a financial perspective, accurate documentation translates into fewer paybacks and reduced liability.   
OnTarget offers an array of note customization tools that allow organizations to record documentation in an accurate and timely manner.  Note templates can be customized by configuring custom labelsfields, and note keys.  This allows organizations and the note writers to accurately capture the details of service delivery, monitor client progress, and retrieve documentation as needed; all while remaining both person-centered and fine-tuned to the specific workflow(s) of each organization.
