Accessibility To Medical Records

A major strength of MEMO is the ability to examine original hospital records where necessary. Several studies validating the computerised diagnostic data with the case records have been carried out, with variable results depending on the criteria used (Kohli and Knill-Jones, 1992; Park et al., 1992; Pears et al., 1992). Within the National Health Service, such case record searching for the purposes of drug safety evaluation is ethically permissible once Medical Ethics Committee approval from the Caldicott guardians has been obtained (HMSO, 1992).
