At CARE we help organizations performing clinical research achieve their data collection goals through medical chart reviews. As health information management and clinical documentation/coding specialists, we have particular expertise in supporting research that requires real world evidence, such as electronic medical records. We provide highly predictable results that are on time, on budget and meet data integrity requirements. An unparalleled, time-tested methodology for data quality assurance and project management is our key to ensuring the reliability and validity of clinical data abstracted on every project.
The medical record is the most comprehensive source of detailed clinical information pertaining to all aspects of patient care and the effectiveness of that care. Yet, researchers may avoid healthcare study designs involving medical chart reviews because of concerns about abstraction accuracy, complexity, cost and timeliness.
If the chart reviews for your next study could be performed accurately, smoothly and within budget and time constraints, would you be able to deliver more robust data analysis and ultimately advance your organization’s research goals?
The procurement and abstraction of charts for this large study of screening for lung cancer is complex and challenging. Medical records from diverse sources, both inpatient and outpatient, are collected on thousands of study participants in more than twenty hospitals across the country. These records document health care utilization and clinical outcomes over a period of time spanning several years. Care Communications took on the challenge and brought it to fruition with remarkable resourcefulness, flexibility and professionalism.”
