New medical records facility has been inaugurated today in the premises of Basavatarakam Indo American Cancer Hospital & Research Institute. The new facility will allow more number of patient records to be kept in safe custody. With this expanded facility, the medical records department can provide solace to cancer patients who are forced to visit the hospital for years. This new facility is inaugurated by Sri Nandamuri Balakrishna, Chairman, BIACH&RI formally after performing traditional rituals and a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Speaking on the occasion, Sri Nandamuri Balakrishna has explained that cancer patients have to visit the hospital for few years for treatment and also for review thus forcing hospital to keep the records for a period of ten years. As the numbers of patients are increasing day by day due to increase in bed capacity, it became imperative for the hospital to expand the medical records facility on regular basis, he added. As keeping these medical records in safe custody and also delivering them to patients/doctors as and when required is a herculean task and important function in the hospital, he said.
