e. The contract physician will be required to enter all notes, request diagnostic tests, consultative
requests, order medications and resulting reports into the computerized patient record system (CPRS)
on the day of the visit. In the event of computer system failure, the physician must maintain sufficient
written or typed information to allow for entry in CPRS at a later time. Documentation is expected to
meet medical center policies/Clinical Practice Guideline and Joint Commission/HCFA
standards for documentation and subsequent coding. The physician needs a strong working
knowledge of computers/skills to access the computerized patient record system (CPRS) utilized by the

limited exposure to computers and poor data entry skills.
