Audit literally means ‘official inspection of an organization’s data or finances, typically by an independent body’. While most audits relate to financial matters, medical audits are used by health care professionals to evaluate, estimate, and improve the care of their patients in an organized way. These can be internal or external. Medical audit provides a systemic feedback to health authorities about the quality of medical care that was being given. With the help of audits, doctors learn about what they have been practicing, comparing their results with other benchmarks, and thus changing their practice to improve its effectiveness [1].
