It is a necessity that we should not take for granted, to misplace are records because they carry an essential information about us and sometimes when that information is in the wrong hands or on hands of those who are not authorized to access those records, it may harm your personality since you may not know what they intend to do with those records that they have acquired in whichever way that they may have.
Records are in the same way a prerequisite to us and also to our lives in so many that we may not explain because we can never exhaust all of them at once, however, such records which are so important to us are our health records because they indicate how our health is, what disease you may have contacted or which you are contacted to or not, so if someone who should not have the permission to access these records get hold of them, it cannot be a good situation since you never know what people are capable of.
However, we are all aware that health records are private and those who should have access to them are you, your doctor and maybe your nurse and whatever is in those records should stay between you two and not be disclosed to anyone no matter what because that information is very private and confidential in so many ways, so our private records should always be stored somewhere where there is only doctor’s access and no one else for that matter.
Those records which can be physically held can be accessed by anyone if stored may be in a drawer or on a shelf as it is done in many health centers, and this is not safe since these records are accessible to anyone who might wish to have a look at them, breaking the directive that health records should be private and between you and your doctor, so we find that physical or paper records are not at all safe to protect the personality and reputation of the patient.
Health records should be electronic because electronic health records can be preserved in so many advanced ways so as to avoid illegal access to them or so that to prevent unauthorized users to having access to these records which as we have discussed, are very private and confidential, so that no patient’s reputation or well-being is damaged if at all anyone had that intention after acquiring those concerned health records, since they will have no access to them at all and in any way they try, they cannot succeed.
