MI SOP and WI templates

Medical Information Standard Operating Procedure and Work Instruction Templates

Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and Work Instructions (WI) define the processes required to provide a high quality, accurate and compliant Medical Information function. Feedback from members suggests that many SOPs are often overly complex and difficult to follow. PIPA has developed these templates to provide a standard format that members can use when writing these documents for their department.

Considerations when writing these documents should include:

  • Keeping the content in the SOP to the minimum, to reduce the need for regular updates
  • Using the WI to provide the detail of the day-to-day functioning of the department
  • Using diagrams and flow charts to illustrate process flows and to ensure ease of understanding
