Structured clinical documentation to improve quality and support practice-based research in headache.
The authors developed a proprietary toolkit to aid clinicians when creating clinical documentation in electronic medical records (EMRs). This toolkit will help clinicians provide discrete data and not unstructured free text which many clinicians enter into the EMR. The toolkit collects hundreds of fields of data and interprets score tests for a number of difference assessment tools for anxiety disorder, depression, migraine disability, and insomnia. The toolkit was used at 4346 initial patient visits as of April 1, 2018. The toolkit is being shared with other clinics as part of the Neurology Practice-Based Research Network.
