Clinical governance and clinical systems

How are clinical information systems relevant to clinical governance? The answer is quite straightforward: imagine a world of care delivery in darkness (literally or metaphorically), absent of any information about the person for whom you are providing care.

A reminder - for the record

Documentation is an essential component of effective communication. Given the complexity of healthcare and the fluidity of clinical teams, healthcare records are one of the most important information sources available to clinicians. Undocumented or poorly documented information relies on memory and is less likely to be communicated and retained. This can lead to loss of information, which can result in misdiagnosis and harm.
