Abstract: Analysis of coded communications and electronic patient record data present a unique opportunity for nursing knowledge discovery, the integration of communication content with clinical data. However, joint analysis of coded communications and clinical data depends on the ability to link waveform audio files with patient records. A procedure has been developed to /ink waveform audio files with Toxicall patient records, using date/time stamps and station identification numbers.
