Where the health care money is, in charts – A profit system increasingly relegates health care into a secondary role in its own industry. Regulators focus far more on the charts than the reality, the care: it’s far easier work for them to review checklists of forms filled out than it is to assess real work in progress. I’ve often wondered if it’s become almost possible to put together a Fictional Medical Records Department without any actual patient care, staff, or facilities, and get it certified as a hospital. Charts have always served multiple audiences, but these days we see efforts to edit them entirely for profit enhancement. How much outright fraud results?
