The Practice Toolkit, a fully customizable resource built to suit clinics of all sizes, contains sample documents such as clinician contracts, confidentiality agreements, and facility checklists, as well as policies on workplace safety, privacy and confidentiality, and employee conduct. The Toolkit is available online, along with a downloadable MS Word version, and accompanied by an editing guide that clinics can use to create their own customized clinic manual. The expanded toolkit incorporates forms, contracts, and other documents (e.g., sample locum contracts).
While there is no legal requirement for clinics to use an operations manual like the Practice Toolkit, the value of having policies and processes in place can’t be overstated. The content in the Practice Toolkit can help clinics comply with employment and privacy law, keep abreast of new CMA and College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC guidelines, and keep EMRs and other documents organized and up to date to improve efficiency in the event of an audit. The sample forms, agreements, and contracts are based on best practices that have been tried and tested by many different practices, and accessing them can save clinics time and money by eliminating the need to track down and gather this information from outside consultants.
