  • 39. Results Summary Comments • Because this is the first audit using these criteria, we do not have historical data to compare our progress it is likely that we have collectively improved • However, audit tool results demonstrate need for ongoing and specific improvements • Many people believe they are doing MedRec but they may not be doing it well – The foundation of the process – the BPMH needs work • Validity of the BPMH –results are disappointing – It will be useful to use the scores and correlations in future audits to measure improvement www.saferhealthcarenow.ca
  • 40. Results Summary Comments • Need to critically evaluate admission processes to ensure quality of MedRec processes at other transitions • Sites will need to understand the need for training people to use the audit tool – materials are available to support this process 40 www.saferhealthcarenow.ca
