Color-code Labels On Patient Charts
We color-code the label on the spine of each patient's chart with a highlighter as the chart travels through the appropriate channels. This lets us see the status of the chart at a glance while the charts are on the rack.
- Yellow means the chart is complete and has all required documentation for the case to be admitted.
- Green means the patient has been called with her arrival time (this helps greatly to ensure no charts are missed!).
- Pink shows the chart was entered into our billing system.
- Blue means the follow-up call has been completed and documented.
