Abstract

Poor organisation and partial or inaccurate completion of clinical notes can cause problems ranging from frustration to litigation. Despite this, no country has processes in place to regulate record-keeping across medical facilities. In our Guest Editorial, Iain Carpenter, Mala Bridgelal Ram, and John G. Williams contemplate how new initiatives in the UK to standardise recording of clinical details could not only improve patient health care but also perhaps fill the gaps in the evidence not answered by RCTs.
