I am hoping someone can give me some advice. I am a medical coder for a small 1 physician practice. In 2014, we switched over to new Practice Management software for EHR. I have been educating, prodding, advising both Dr and the Office Manager regarding the seriousness of locking medical records. There is a strict protocol in place by the Office Manager that NO records are EVER to be locked by ANYONE, in case "changes need to be made". After 2 years, it is clear to me that every effort I have made, every article, every warning regarding compliance has fallen on deaf ears. I ran a report this morning, and from 2015 to present, there are over 8,000 unlocked electronic medical records. Does anyone have any advice on what I should do?
