This team developed tools to improve admission documentation.

After we completed the pilot phase of the new order set, the O:E mortality for stroke improved to 0.66, down from 1.02.

The number of queries sent to residents from coders asking for more information also dropped significantly, from a monthly average of seven to three, indicating that the residents were capturing more of the necessary information upfront.
