It is important to have informative medical recordings in the medical clinic to facilitate communication between and among physician colleagues (particularly in the setting of multiple physicians seeing one patient). In addition, informative medical recordings are important to facilitate physician’s communication with the patients particularly if they are given a copy and an informed consent or agreement on management is to be obtained.
Note: It is important that the handwriting is legible at all times.
