Health Records

The Oncology Health Records Department is responsible for keeping and maintaining a full and up-to-date chart on all patients treated at the Dr. Léon-Richard Oncology Centre.

An oncology chart is opened for every new patient diagnosed with cancer. The patient is added to the provincial Cancer Registry and the search for information begins. The department staff communicate with hospitals inside and outside the province to make sure that the chart is complete and up to date for the patient’s appointment.
