Background: Problems in recording, data collection and reporting are common in university hospitals. Thus, the present study was carried out to determine these problems and also facilitate the conditions of reporting statistical data in Kashan university in 2000.Materials and Methods: All statistics units of Kashan university were included in this descriptive study. A questionnaire was considered for data collection in different wards, emergency room, admission unit, operation room, radiology department, laboratory and different clinics. These questionnaires were completed by interview and direct observation. Calculation of different statistical indices were observed and matched with standard methods. Results: All study units have medical record system. Previously designed sheets were used for data collection and reporting in 83 of study units, however, clinics have not these sheets. 35 of hospital indices were calculated, of which 48 were correctly calculated. These indices were reported to 14 of hospital managers. Data were collected daily in 56 and monthly in 44 for the hospitals. Conclusion: Despite the presence of facilities for data collection, the process of data collection and reporting was not appropriate. Further studies are highly recommended to determine the underlying factors.
