From the choices that are mentioned, it is evident that the answer to this is A. The person needs to have access to the personal information of the patient to know what should be done in order to help the patient get better. How can someone know what to properly administer or give the patient when the patient’s current information is unavailable?

There are times when even being a relative of the patient will not be enough for records to be available. It has to be an immediate family member and there should be an important reason why the information should be retrieved and gathered. Curiosity will not be enough to provide vital information.

If a physician asks for the diagnosis of the patient and also a need to know for the performance of your job. Accessing a patient’s records is necessary for the continuity of care from your doctor. Patient information systems have the ability to track an individual's health problems and treatment over time.

Patient information relates to the past, present, or future physical or mental health conditions. The doctor can then give more improved and thorough insight into the optimal diagnosis and treatment of the patient, as well as providing high-quality delivery of services.
