For you, as a patient, there are processes in place to allow you to request your medical records. If you would like to ensure the copies of your record reflect the entire episode of care, you may consider requesting your patient record after discharge or at the end of your care episode.
To give Cleveland Clinic access to outside medical records, you will need to authorize release from your current medical provider(s). Please complete the form and send it to your non Cleveland Clinic provider for processing.
Based on workshops co-sponsored by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund and HHMI, this book is a collection of practical advice and experiences from seasoned biomedical investigators and includes chapters on laboratory leadership, getting funded, project management, and teaching and course design.
The CAP further authorizes the following uses by physicians and other health care practitioners, in reporting on surgical specimens for individual patients, in teaching, and in carrying out medical research for non-profit purposes: (1) Dictation from the original or modified protocols for the purposes of creating a text-based patient record on paper, or in a word processing document; (2) Copying from the original or modified protocols into a text-based patient record on paper, or in a word processing document; (3) The use of a computerized system for items (1) and (2), provided that the protocol data is stored intact as a single text-based document, and is not stored as multiple discrete data fields.
Other than uses (1), (2), and (3) above, the CAP does not authorize any use of the Protocols in electronic medical records systems, pathology informatics systems, cancer registry computer systems, computerized databases, mappings between coding works, or any computerized system without a written license from the CAP.
The management review needs to be conducted at planned intervals to ensure continuing suitability, adequacy and effectiveness of a QMS based on ISO 13485. It also needs to include the assessment of opportunities for improvement, and changes in QMS. Finally, the records of the management review need to be kept as evidence of compliance.
Audits. Does the Company Management Representative review the audit reports and ensure that they are included in the audit planning for the year? If this is the case, then you have someone in management who is reviewing the results of audits and how they are improving the Management System. Any audit reports, if they include this review information, are not only records of the audits, but also records of the Management Review.
Follow-up from previous management review. This requirement is accomplished if the previously mentioned actions receive follow-up to ensure they were implemented. The most important thing is to ensure that the records show this follow-up review.
The headings below are the mandatory outputs of Management Review, and records of the above queries need to be maintained to show that management review successfully addressed them and identified the outputs for the QMS.
All management reviews must be documented. Observations, conclusions, and recommendations for further necessary action from the review must be recorded. If any corrective action or preventive actions must be taken, the management team should follow up to ensure that the action was effectively implemented.

Contributions have also increased steadily. Despite dramatic downsizing in the Federal workforce during the 1990's, the amount received in donor contributions rose steadily -- with half of the nearly $5 billion in contributions raised since results were recorded in 1964 received in the last ten years since 1990. This upward trend in giving continues strong. In 2001 alone following the September 11 terrorist attacks, Federal donor's contributions rose by 8% over 2000 for a total of $241 million, the largest increase in 12 years. By 2004, contributions increased to $256 million. 2b1af7f3a8
