Medical record
A medical record or health record is a systematic documentation of a patient's medical history and care. The term 'Medical record' is used both for the physical folder for each individual patient and for the body of information which comprises the total of each patient's health history. Medical records are personal documents and there are many ethical and legal issues surrounding them such as the degree of third-party access and appropriate storage and disposal. Medical records are traditionally compiled and stored by health care providers but personal health records maintained by individual patients are becoming increasingly popular. The links shown on this page feature the key word ′Medical record' in their stories:
