The uses of prenatal records extend well beyond management of patient care.
They are also vehicles for communication, quality assurance, financial compensation, and legal documentation.
To serve each of these functions, records should be systematic and detailed.
This nationwide study was conducted to assess the extent to which prenatal records in current use include sufficient detail to serve these functions.
A random sample of 2746 physicians who listed obstetrics and gynecology, obstetrics, or maternal-fetal medicine as a primary or secondary speciality in the American Medical Association file were contacted by mail and were requested to submit a blank copy of their prenatal records.
