Department of Medical Record Management

Department of Medical Record Management aims at appropriate management of the health records and also at further quality improvement of the content through cooperation with each clinical department or division in the University of Tokyo Hospital.

Sections and Business

The Department of Medical Record Management was established in 2009, and it is composed of two sections, examination and management sections. The Department has managed outpatient health records and X-ray films since 1994, and inpatient health records since 2001. The electronic health record system has been working since 2009.

Examination section

The health information managers who belong to this section check the format and content of the health records and other various attached documents. When the managers find any inappropriate content in health records, they report it and discuss with the corresponding clinical department to improve quality and accuracy of the health records.
