Implementation and Evaluation of a Protocol for Recording Process Documentation in the Presence of Failures [chapter]

Zheng Chen, Luc Moreau
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We have designed F-PReP, a protocol to guarantee the recording of process documentation in the presence of failures. This paper discusses its implementation and evaluates its performance.  ...  Failures result in process documentation not being recorded, thereby causing the loss of evidence that a process occurred.  ...  In this paper, we have evaluated a protocol, F-PReP, for recording process documentation in the presence of failures.  ...

Felicity N.R. Harl, Megan C. Saucke, Caprice C. Greenberg, Angela M. Ingraham
2017 Journal of Surgical Research  
Elements of written communication were abstracted from referring facility documents scanned into the medical record using a standardized abstraction protocol.  ...  In 12.4% (n = 14), referring documents arrived after the patient's ED arrival and were not part of the original documentation provided.  ...  Elements examined in the final analysis included the presence of outside records, the total number of scanned pages, and the role (i.e., physician, nurse) of the author of the documentation.  ...
