1 Diagnosis and procedures codification The effects of technology

2 Introduction Recording clinical information is important to the health industry Access to previous information leads to better diagnosis and treatment in the future [1] Paper-based record / Electronic records [1] Movig KL, Leufkens HG, Lenderink AW, Egberts AC. Validity of hospital discharge International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for identifying patients with hyponatremia. J Clin Epidemiol Jun;56(6): Diagnosis and procedures codification

3 Lacks of information of previous studies [1] Electronic patient record (EPR) as the main method in a near future. [2] It is important to study and to conclude if this new information organization will result in any difference from the old one. [1] Movig KL, Leufkens HG, Lenderink AW, Egberts AC. Validity of hospital discharge International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes for identifying patients with hyponatremia. J Clin Epidemiol Jun;56(6): [2] Gillies J, Holt A. Anxious about electronic health records? No need to be. N Z Med J Sep 26;116(1182):U604. Diagnosis and procedures codification

4 Advantages and disadvantages of EPR and paper- based records. Most of the studies conclude that the electronic system is better, although some of them disagree.
