Head of Unit : Armin Vosoughi
Since medical documents and the information included in them represent very precious and reliable leverages in policy-making and planning of the healthcare administrators, due diligence should be undertaken in modifying, improving and progressing them and this is contingent upon the identification of medical documents units in the healthcare centers, as well as identifying the strengths and weaknesses and taking action to revise and improve them. Identifying the medical documents unit and its capabilities does not simply include investigating each and every form used to record data and function as a resource for retaining useful information. But it also includes the assessment of the performance of the constituents of the medical documents unit, each of which partly contains the process of collection, ordering, proper saving, classification in line with the unit’s information, proper retention of the information and medical and healthcare stats which constitute the basis of logical reasoning in the type of services offered, playing an effective role in the subsequent predictions.
The medical documents unit, which works to offer services to the patients, doctors, hospital administrators, provide educational and research services, maintain the desirable remedial and healthcare services quality, preserve the rights of the patients and maintain standards, is considered to be one of the most important parts of the hospital and follows these goals:
- Establishing an efficient and monolithic system to retain the complete dossiers of the patients
- Providing the statistics of the diagnostic and clinical actions done and their interpretation and analysis
- Preparing and collecting the patients’ indices in order to find the medical dossiers in case of frequent referrals
- Preparing and collecting the indices of surgeries and diseases to help with research and development
- Preparing the summary of medical dossiers to help the legal authorities with the issuance of decrees
