Davis Regional Medical Center’s Health Information Department was recognized recently during National Health Information Professionals Week. This team works diligently every day to maintain the highest standards of data integrity, confidentiality and security for patients’ medical records.

Medical records serve many purposes. First and most importantly, they document the patient’s examination, diagnosis, and treatment. The information is then accessible for all physicians or providers who are involved in the patient’s care. It also is available for physicians or providers who provide subsequent treatment or assume responsibility for the patient.

It is vitally important that the medical record contains information that is accurate, accessible, and secure.
