Abstract

Introduction: Hospital managers make decisions based on the statistics and
information obtained from Statistic and Medical Records Department (SMRD).
Methods: This is a descriptive-analytical study which is to determine the
knowledge and attitude of Hormozgan province hospital administrator regarding
SMRD. 18 hospital administrators underwent study.
Results: The among governmental hospital administrators, 23.1% had weak,
62.2% moderate and 7.7% good SMRD knowledge respectively. While SMRD
knowledge of nongovernmental hospital administrators was 80% moderate and
20% good respectively.
Conclusion: Hospital administrators must have adequate knowledge of all
hospital departments including medical records department. The results of this
investigation showed that Hormozgan hospital managers do not have adequate
knowledge of medical records department functions which may lead to inefficient
functioning of other departments and cause economic, social and political
damages.
