Abstract: 

Introduction: The accreditation information management (IM) standards by affecting various aspects of the EHR have a strong impact on the adoption of the EHR systems. Regarding this importance, conducting a comparative study related to IM standards in pioneer countries can facilitate a standardization movement for developing IM standards and reviewing medical records standards in our country.
Methods: This is a comparative-descriptive study in which the IM standards for the national accreditation agencies of Canada (CCHSA), USA (JCAHO) and New Zealand (QHNZ) were collected and investigated through the internet, and e-mail.
Results: The finding of the study revealed that adopted IM standards in these countries focus on the timely entry, defining the time frame within which record must be completed, standardized methods of defining, coding, classifying, gathering data from various sources, linking and combining different types of information from outside and inside the organization and confidentiality.
Conclusion: Generally, all agencies relying upon IM standards, not only improve information management processes, medical records and ensuring health care quality, but also provide a basis for reinforcement of health information systems and EHR. Because information management processes and medical records in our country have many shortcomings and deficiencies, a standardization movement in order to develop IM standards and reviewing medical records standards regarding to EHR is a necessity.
