Primary Medical Record Databases

  • Morris F. Collen
Part of the Health Informatics book series (HI)


Primary medical record databases are data repositories constructed for direct health care delivery to process clinical information, to carry out the special functions for which the data have been collected, integrated, and stored by health-care providers for the direct care of their patients. Medical record data are collected in a variety of medical sites and for a variety of purposes, including helping physicians in making decisions for the diagnosis and treatment of patients, helping nurses in their patient care functions, and helping technical personnel in their clinical support services. The great utility of medical databases resides in their capacity for storing huge volumes of data, and for their ability to help users to search, retrieve, and analyze information on individual patients relevant to their clinical needs. Michalski et al. (1982) added that medical databases were also constructed, in addition to keeping track of clinical data, to be used to study and learn more about the phenomena that produced the data.
