WRITEitRIGHT® mobile reference tool

IHPA has developed WRITEitRIGHT® as part of a suite of educational tools to promote safety and quality in health care, clinical research, benchmarking and service planning.

WRITEitRIGHT® is a quick reference tool to support clinicians in driving improvements in clinical documentation in Australian hospitals.

The user-friendly tool is intended to complement existing processes and assist hospitals with capturing vital data to reflect the scope of services provided, and reducing the number of amendments to medical records after a patient has been discharged.

How it works

WRITEitRIGHT® aims to support the clear, accurate and complete documentation by prompting when a user should move from general to specific terminology with a directory of clinical terms and diagnoses drawn from ICD-10-AM and Australian Coding Standards.


To understand what the app does and does not do, a factsheet has been developed to answer frequently asked questions. 

Free for download

WRITEitRIGHT® is free to download from the App Store and Play Store.

Feedback and app support

Did you notice a common diagnostic term missing? Let us know what terms you would like to see included in the next update of WRITEitRIGHT®. 

If there is anything we could do to improve the user experience, please let us know.

Champion program

IHPA is looking to work with hospital-based stakeholders to share WRITEitRIGHT® across existing hospital networks. Champions are provided with supporting material on WRITEitRIGHT® and are encouraged to collect and provide feedback from users.

The champion program provides hospital-based managers and educators the opportunity to influence the ongoing development of WRITEitRIGHT®.
