Medical Record Keeping

The PBI Medical Record Keeping course illustrates, for all clinicians, why the process of keeping and maintaining complete, clear, and accurate medical records is critical to the responsible provision of patient care.

This live, interactive, two-day course, is comprised of didactic lectures and group discussion. During the course, participants are given real medical records to analyze and discuss. The course culminates in each participant's development of their Personalized Protection Plan, outlining how they will improve record keeping and documentation moving forward.

PBI is committed to providing interactive, individualized, impactful education. To facilitate this, our Medical Record Keeping course size is limited to 15 participants. 

Course participants complete pre-course assignments including: personal record review and critique, research on state and specialty specific laws and guidelines, additional readings, and written assignments to prepare them for participation in the hands-on review and interactive group analysis of records during their course.

This Course Is Suitable For:

Physicians, physician assistants, nurses, veterinarians, podiatrists, and other clinicians.

  • "This was literally the best CME course I have ever taken, and the faculty was the most experienced instructor I've ever had. I don't say that lightly. I did not have high hopes for this mandatory course - it could have easily been done sloppily, but PBI and the faculty made it truly excellent."

This was an invaluable course and the only regret I had is that I did not get the chance to take this course years ago.
