Now more than ever, detailed clinical records are essential to the chiropractor. Clinical records are:

  • used to tell the story of what happened during a patient visit.
  • audited by the College of Chiropractors of Alberta (CCOA) Competence Committee using the Standards of Practice and the CCOA Record-keeping Requirements Guide to assess compliance as part of the practice reviews that all CCOA members complete.
  • reviewed to assess a situation should you have a complaint or malpractice claim.
