Disclosure of Medical Records

Management of Medical Records

  • Inpatient medical records and outpatient medical records are centrally managed at Health Information Management.
  • At NTT Medical Center Tokyo, electronic medical records have been introduced since December 2000, but previous paper medical files (outpatient/inpatient), X-ray films, ECG, EEG, and other records that need to be saved on paper even after the use of electronic medical records are centrally stored and managed, available for use at any time when required for medical care.
  • For electronic medical records, the status of information recorded in the medical records and completion of discharge summaries is checked, and physicians are encouraged to complete the records and summaries by the deadline.
