Abstract

Introduction: Given the role of the medical record committee, that is, supervision
and quality evaluation of medical records and support of required standards in
relation to medical records, a study about current situation of hospital medical
record committees was conducted.
Methods: This study was an applied research. An evaluation pattern for medical record
committees was designed to study the similarities and differences of structure and
activities of medical record committees in selected countries and Iran. Then the designed
pattern was distributed among experts.
Results: Delphi Technique showed, that most of the experts (86.4% frequency) agreed
with the components of the model as following: 97.2% with purpose, 63.9% with members'
combination of committee, 94.4% with inferior reference, 97.2% with standards, and
91.7% with job description for activities of medical record committee.
Conclusion: With respect to deficiencies in medical records instructions and agreement of
experts with the proposed pattern, ministry of health and medical education could establish
new instructions including comprehensive structure and activities and distribution to all
hospitals.
