e. The fifth purpose of medical records is to provide documentation for hospital
accreditation. The Joint Commission for Accreditation of Hospital Organizations
(JCAHO) has established standards for patient care throughout medical treatment
facilities. Hospitals must provide evidence of the extent of its compliance with each
standard that is applicable to its operation. To be accredited, a medical treatment
facility must demonstrate it is in substantial compliance with the standards. Medical
records are used to show compliance in patient care. After surveying an MTF, the
JCAHO may make recommendations on upgrading medical records and/or procedures.
f. Medical records also provide data for medical research.
