Abstract


A doctor is required to provide good medical care and complies with the standard to the public. Doctors in carrying out their practice must make medical records. The existence of a medical record is not only needed as part of the health service but also as a legal basis because it contains facts about the patient’s condition about the history or condition if the disease and the treatment measures that have been, are being, and will be done by a doctor. The problem in this research is about counterfeiting of medical record data by doctors in Indonesia reviewed from the ethics, discipline, and law aspect. A complete and correct medical record contains the medical chronology from patients and becomes one of the keys to resolving cases malpractice even made excuses by corruptors to ignore from investigation process with illness reason. Medical records data counterfeiting cases in Indonesia are subject to ethics, discipline, and law sanctions based on applicable laws and regulations because the counterfeiting violated the provisions applicable rules in medical practice whereas if the case only violates the provisions of ethics code and/or discipline then it is  considered violations of ethic and/or discipline only. Thus, if a doctor is considered unlawful, then the doctor also violates ethics and discipline. Whereas, if a doctor is considered violate ethics and discipline then the doctor is not necessarily considered unlawful. Furthermore, a doctor should know and understand about ethics, discipline, and law related to medical practice and need special education every doctor continuously in order to give understanding about ethics, discipline, and law so that cases of violations of ethics, discipline, and law can be minimized, or even no more doctor in Indonesia does violation caused by lack of integrity as a doctor also need for improvement in the medical record system so that its existence can be well maintained and not easily manipulated by anyone.
