The Need for Health Records

Why should there be any Health Record or Medical Record?
What does a Medical Record consist of?
How is it related to Medical Transcription?

These are some of the doubts that any layman might have. The Medical Record is a “proof of work done”. It is essential to gauge the quality of care provided to a patient. It consists of documentation to fulfill Federal State and Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Organization standards and regulations and those for reimbursement and third-party payer requirements as well. Medical Record is essential for the medico legal protection for patient, physician, facility, and staff.
