What is a Medical Record?

The medical record is a permanent document of the history and progress of every patient's medical care. The record is a compilation of observations and findings recorded by the patient's physician and members of the hospital health care staff. The entries and reports originate at various points in the hospital. Records are used for continuity of patient care, to verify insurance claims for medical care rendered, and as a legal/business document outlining the course of a patient's medical care.
