The Medical Records Department of a Hospital is responsible for maintaining medical records in a standardized and professional manner in order to protect patient confidentiality while allowing adequate access to providers in order to promote quality patient care. Transcription, diagnosis coding, and release of information are some of the other major duties performed in the Medical Records Department of major hospitals. Also information is gathered and sent to state agencies concerning Traumas, Births, and Deaths.
Recently Nagpur Municipal Corporation had organized a seminar to sensitize all hospital administrators about the new guidelines in birth/death certificate submission. Shri.Mukesh Shambarkar and Smt.Deepa Goikar conducted the seminar. Smt.Jayshree Jugade, Coordinator, OCHRI Medical Record Department Division complimented TEAM NMC for this unique sensitization workshop. She highlighted that Aadhar card number is essential while filling up registration Number of patients and hence all patients who are approaching any health care service provider should positively carry Aadhar card. Without Aadhar card no birth or death registration will be done henceforth by NMC. Moreover, carbon copy of 2 other copies can be used in death certification, but the carbon paper should be new every time for clarity. All doctors are now expected to fill the forms in CAPITAL letters with no spelling mistakes since next day online entry is going to be done by MRD Divisions of various hospitals wherein no subsequent change is possible. Orange City Hospital & Research Institute caters to maximum number of accident cases amongst private hospital of Nagpur and the working methodology of OCHRI’s dedicated MRD division has been studied by many management school students.
