The quality of patient health records is an important factor in the provision of safe and effective healthcare. Maintaining good-quality patient health records supports appropriate clinical decision-making and continuity of care, especially with the increasing use of shared care models.

The maintenance of quality health records in general practice contributes to data provision for research and policy, education and medico-legal purposes.

This webinar outlines what constitutes a high-quality health record and how practices can put systems in place to ensure they produce health records that are fit for purpose, in alignment with the resource Improving health record quality in general practice.
