The Medical Records Pals Malaysia Research Papers Collection listed below is a collection of full text (in pdf format) Research Papers appearing in journals, which are primarily concerned with the research interests that explore theoretical and practical problems associated with broadly defined areas of health information management / medical records management.

This personal collection consists of health information management / medical records management associated / linked Research Papers from 2009 to the present. This collection will be updated periodically from my personal collection.

It is my fervent hope that these Research Papers will become an important forum for the discussion of research results and a source of original ideas.

It is also my hope that these Research Papers will stimulate a culture for research in health information management / medical records management.among Health Information Management (HIM) / Medical Records (MR) practitioners in Malaysia specifically and among HIM / MR practitioner readers of this website-blog outside Malaysia.
