Medical records form an important part of the management of a patient care. Proper documentation is now more important than ever to prove that the treatment was carried out properly, for scientific evaluation and review of patient management, care planning as well as billing and reimbursement issues.

Medical record keeping has evolved into a science of itself and can include a variety of documentation of patient’s history, clinical findings, diagnostic test results, preoperative care, operation notes, post-operative care, and daily notes of a patient’s progress and medications.
