Your medical record is a compilation of pertinent facts of your health
history, including past and present illnesses and treatments, written by the
health care professionals contributing to your care.
It includes all inpatient, outpatient, emergency and clinic records. As a
patient at Great Plains Regional Medical Center, you are assigned a medical
record unit number (MRUN) on your first visit to our facility. This number is
retained for all subsequent services and all of your records are maintained in a
unit record in the Health Information Management department.
