Robert (and the group)--
Please visit your Director of Health Information Management (HIM) or what we used to call medical records. Ask that person if s/he is a member of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). If so, ask her/him to get you the AHIMA Copy Functionality Toolkit.
This package includes templates for policies and procedures and outstanding advice on how to organize your medical staff to deal with the issue. Even if you go in a different direction, it will give you a foundation on which to build your leadership on this project.
Regards to the list./Steve
