For most healthcare institutions and hospitals, patient charts containing the medical history of their patients are kept in order for assigned physicians to have a basis for making their medical diagnoses. Current medical complaints and conditions need to be traced prior to prescribing and advising new medicines and health examinations such as laboratory examinations and cardiology exercises. One wrong advice could lead to patient liability and may worsen the situation of the patient.
Most people would refer to medical charts as a useless way of tracking their health history. But if all of these documents were to be compiled, it can provide a better of the overall health of a person from infancy to adulthood. pictureThere are certain areas to consider such as allergies and prior medications and vaccination. All of these are important before new medical treatment is provided to them by licensed physicians affiliated with such healthcare groups.
