Abstract

Problem-oriented records, performance audit, and a clinical index were implemented in the eye-care service of the Dorchester House Multi-Service Center, a neighborhood health center and teaching affiliate of the New England College of Optometry. We found that problem-oriented records facilitate communication and encourage logical thinking, that audit helps assure the quality of care and teaching, and that a clinical index provides a perspective on the overall performance of the eye-care service.
