A primary care university clinic discovered major errors in its medical records after instituting a computerized medical records system. A quality assessment tool was devised to measure the error rate and provide clues to the sources of these errors. During the implementation of this tool a marked reduction in data entry errors occurred suggesting its use had a positive impact on our medical record quality.
