Understanding Your Medical Records

Medical records contain a wealth of important personal information, often in terms hard to understand.

Now, the American Health Information Management Association has a brochure, "Understanding Your Medical Records," which contains a list of common prefixes, suffixes and root words that often appear in medical records.

The brochure maps a course for obtaining and interpreting these records to help keep you informed about your body, and help doctors ascertain your specific needs. Copies are available for $1.75 apiece (including shipping and handling) by calling AHIMA Customer Service at 1-800-335-5535.
