Medical/health records form an essential part of a patient’s present and future health care. As a written collection of information about a patient’s health and treatment, documents are used essentially for the present and continuing care. A careful detailed recording of patient’s medical information ensures quality care for during patient repeat visits. A negligence of this protocol can result in a wrong treatment. Also, negative legal repercussions can be avoided in proper documentation and appropriate communication of patient information is adhered to.
In addition, medical records are used in the management and planning of health care facilities and services, for medical research and the production of health care statistics.
NABH standards also cover pertinent points on medical documentation which are mandatorily followed by NABH accredited hospitals or hospitals planning to achieve NABH accreditation.
Keeping the importance of a vital aspect in patient care, VISION 2020 INDIA plans to conduct a one hour webinar session.
This programme is intended for Trustees, CEOs, Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, Administrators, Nurses and Quality Managers.
