Health Records is responsible for maintaining the security, confidentiality and integrity of information in each patient’s health record. In addition, this service area transcribes doctors’ dictation and provides correspondence services to respond to authorized requests for health information. By providing data and analytical reports to other clinical service areas and to government agencies, Health Records effectively supports activities relating to the planning, evaluation, and continuity of patient care, as well as meeting educational and legal interests.
Approximately half of this service area’s six full-time equivalent employees are dedicated to transcription services. The remainder fulfill the other requirements of this service.
