Introduction of the Audit-C test into the patient’s electronic medical record as a mandatory item

The inclusion of the Audit-C test as an essential component within the patient’s medical record has emerged as a highly relevant practice in the hospital setting. This test, designed to assess alcohol consumption, has become a mandatory element for conducting systematic screening in the population served in healthcare settings.

The technical rationale underlying the integration of Audit-C into the medical record lies in its ability to provide a quick and effective assessment of the risk associated with alcohol consumption. This instrument is based on three fundamental questions that cover the frequency and quantity of consumption. Its systematic application not only facilitates the early identification of potential alcohol-related problems but also establishes a quantitative basis for assessing the severity of consumption.

The widespread implementation of this measure in the hospital population not only responds to a need to comply with clinical and comprehensive care standards but is also based on the premise of improving the early detection of alcohol consumption patterns that may negatively impact patient health. By adopting this approach, the aim is to provide more proactive and personalized care, thereby contributing to more effective management of the health and well-being of the population served in the hospital setting
