The study reported the influence of teamwork on health records management practices in local government areas of Osun State, Nigeria, with a view to contributing to finding solutions to problems associated with teamwork in relation to health records management practices in local government areas.

Survey research design was adopted for the study. The population of the study was three hundred and six (306) medical and health officers in the 30 local government areas of Osun State. Total enumeration technique was used to cover all the 306 health care professionals in the 30 local government areas. A validated questionnaire was the instrument used for data collection. The response rate of 93.1% was obtained and data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics.

Findings revealed that positive and significant relationship exists between teamwork and health records management practices (Df = 283, N = 285, r = .732**, p < 0.05). It implies that a unit increase in teamwork will increase the tendency for health records management practices in the studied area.

The study concluded that teamwork has significant influence on health records management practices in the local government areas of Osun State. The study recommended that: State government and LGAs should ensure provision of information infrastructure that supports effective health records management practices: State and LGAs should ensure that roles and responsibilities are clearly defined to enhance job specialization and State government should provide a reliable system for training and sharing of uniform value system among health care professionals in the LGAs.
