Medical records indexing is the elaborate process of streamlining and organizing a patient’s demographic, diagnostic, and treatment-related information in an electronic format for future recall. This categorical and extensive archival of a patient’s medical history, in an easy-to-access manner, enables healthcare professionals to enhance, improve and personalize their patient care further. Maintaining patients' comprehensive and accurate medical records is mandatory for healthcare providers and is generally enforced as a licensing or certification perquisite in the United States.

Although there are various types of medical records, the three most commonly used by doctors and patients are:

  • Personal Health Records: In general, any medical record you possess is considered a Personal Health Record (PHR). This comprises records in either paper form or on devices and websites. This contains information that is created and stored by your healthcare provider.
  • Electronic Medical Records: EMRs or Electronic Medical records are electronic files stored securely using an online application for easy access and management. These files are generally used by Labs and Hospitals and not shared with providers outside the system.
  • Electronic Health Records: EHRs or Electronic Health Records are designed to be shared and managed between various healthcare providers. This format enables easy transfer of information between your physician, hospital, lab, drug store, etc.

Benefits of Medical Records Indexing

  • Improved Patient-Care: Collecting and organizing a patients’ medical history electronically enables the healthcare providers to draw upon necessary information, on-demand, to enhance their prognosis and treatment.
  • Ease of Search: Paper documents take up shelf space over time and complicate the information retrieval and referencing process. When done accurately, electronic medical records indexing enables healthcare providers to find specific keywords or documents instantly.
  • Hassle-Free Storage: As it is mandatory to archive a patients’ data for a minimum of 7 years, electronic documentation helps save space.
  • Enhanced Collaboration: Medical records indexing provides a faster and safer way for various healthcare providers to share and manage patient information.
