Abstract

This paper explores the attributes of quality in recorded clinical encounter data, examines issues in measuring these attributes, and describes a method for measuring two attributes, completeness and correctness. The method is defined in the context of computer-based records and is demonstrated in a pilot study. Videotaped physician-patient encounters and an empiric process of determining a gold standard for content are used. The methodology was found to be feasible. Problems encountered during the pilot study can be remedied.
