Abstract: In the present society we have come to appreciate the value of information and in fact a major part of the economies of industrialised societies are based and depend on processing of information. Most well-run businesses need to have a good information-base to stay alive in this competitive world. In the service organisations such as in clinical medicine information is the very soul of the practice. It is generally agreed that documentation of clinical Number (%) 54 10.8 53 10.6 50 10.0 49 9.8 34 6.8 30 6.0 230 46.0 500 100.0 information is essential for the proper management of patients. This is obvious in the care of hospital patients and in those situations where several providers are looking after a patient. In general practice if had taken a bit longer to come to the realisation of the need to keep good records; and many general practitioners in , ancient times hardly felt the need to do so, relying as they did on their well-trained memory. Even nowadays, many practitioners' patient records do not have more form or content than a personal memo to jog their memories and assist them in their billings.
