Abstract: Taking a comprehensive medical history is a prerequisite for treating every patient. This paper will explore the current requirements and suggest how computerized practices might efficiently achieve them. It is suggested that practices consider their patient journey and information flow and a medical history form is presented which should facilitate the process. Audit and monitoring provide a means for continual improvements.

Clinical relevance: Improving the process of taking and recording medical histories will save clinical time and improve patient safety.
