Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A dental record is required to obtain the health information of patients. Data on the medical conditions of patients are needed for dental treatment modifications and for providing insights into possible oral health problems. This study aimed to describe the pattern of the medical conditions of dental patients in Universitas Indonesia Dental Hospital (DHUI) in 2016. Data from the medical records of new patients who visited DHUI from January 2016 to December 2016 were collected. Each patient's medical history was recorded. Incomplete medical records were excluded from the study. Among the 4649 medical records of patients who visited DHUI in 2016, only 1820 (39.1%) were new. Only 1631 (89.6%) medical records were included in the study. Of the 1631 patients, 586 (35.9%) had medical conditions, the most common of which was allergies (n = 215), followed by gastrointestinal abnormalities (n = 190) and cardiovascular abnormalities (n = 77). Duration, drug consumption, and latest medical condition were the most common medical-related information that was obtained. This study found that the obtained information about the patients' medical conditions was not detailed, warranting the modification of the DHUI patient medical record form.
