Question for all health professionals:
With the recent rash of patient ID stealing (Anthem especially), say a
patient of yours has someone impersonate them at another practice, they
get medical care and/or medications. No one figures it out.
You go in at the patients' next appointment, and make assumptions that
the information in the chart is correct. You make a different course of
action (misdiagnosis) due to that information.
Has any one considered about having checks other than just medication
checks in the chart to stop a scenario like this? I can say no I'm not
taking that medication, to the nurse when they ask. It will be struck
off with no other comment.
