Records management (RM) in healthcare is the physical or digital management of medical records in clinics, hospitals, and practices of every size. Medical records must follow a strict set of requirements to remain in compliance with the latest regulations and with the latest Records Retention Requirements.

Medical records management involves filing and storing patient charts, ensuring proper destruction of records, ensuring adherence to regulations, following retention schedules, and scanning medical records. It can also include management of accounting records, contracts, and other administrative records that are related to the healthcare organization.

Storage is a major challenge to successful medical records management. Paper records can take up significant space and are easily visible, whereas electronic records do not take up as much space. Electronic records, however, require significant training, rules, and procedures along with a system/solution and computer terminals to perform the management tasks.
