10.The hospital currently has a hybrid health record. Nurses and clinicians are recording bedside documentation electronically in a clinical documentation system, while most other documentation, such as physician progress notes and orders, are paper based and stored in a paper health record, making retrieval of the complete record after discharge difficult and risking the record’s integrity. Given these circumstances, which of the following should the HIM director implement to alleviate these problems and preserve the efficiencies of an electronic record?a. Print out all electronic data postdischarge and file with the rest of the paper recordb. Microfilm all electronic data and link to the paper recordc. Digitally scan all paper records postdischarge, and integrate and index these into the existing electronic document management systemd. Do not scan any of the paper recordsCorrect Answer: CMany hospitals incorporate documents into their EHR systems.
