  • Medical Record Guidelines > Auditing Primary Care Physician (PCP) Medical Records

    The Quality Review Operations department conducts ongoing audits, based on randomly selected charts, of a PCP's medical record documentation procedures. We inform PCPs of their results at the time of the audit.

    Those PCPs who do not score at least 90 percent are offered a means of correcting a deficiency immediately after review and are enrolled in one-year of monitoring, during which EmblemHealth will educate and provide practitioners with record-keeping aids. A nurse reviewer will then re-audit by viewing at least three records seen by the PCP during the monitoring period.
