PRADO, Sônia Regina Leite de Almeida and FUJIMORI, Elizabeth. Registry of child information in the Patient Health Record and the comprehensiveness of practice. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.1, pp. 67-71. ISSN 0034-7167. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-71672006000100013.
Having the basic principle of comprehensiveness as one of the main aspects for a healthcare attendance, the Patient Health Record was pointed as an indicator of reality. The objective was to analyze Patient Health Record from two different healthcare units with different healthcare models. One of the healthcare units organized its model on traditional basis (without-FHP) and the other based on "Family Health Program" (with-FHP). 194 child files under 5 years old were analysed. It was observed that the FHP unit records were more frequent, favoring a better comprehension of the health-disease process, the professional integration and a periodic follow-up of the child, promoting a continuous assistance, and as a consequence, a comprehensiveness attendance.
