Electronic medical record systems for endoscopic data have evolved from simple endoscopy report generators to endoscopy unit managers. These systems may improve patient care and enhance endoscopy unit efficiency and productivity. Regarding endoscopists, the introduction of automated endoscopic reporting using endoscopic electronic medical records should permit database establishment. The systematic development of the structure and content of endoscopic reports is mandatory before it is possible to create large, clinically useful databases of endoscopic reports. An accurate endoscopic report is based on the use of standard terminology, a standard classification method, and image and video recordings. The minimal standard terminology was developed as a minimum list of terms that could be included in a computer system for endoscopic reporting. A standard framework of endoscopic reports using standard terminology and a minimal checklist of endoscopic images are also needed for quality assurance.
