You don't mention what type of summary you are looking to create, so we found two:

  1. A discharge summary
    1. See page 51 (51of the PDF, but 41 of the document) of the World Health Organization's Medical Records Manual at
  2. A medical record summary for a legal case
    1. See page 84 (84 of the PDF, but 74 of the document) of the World Health Organization's Medical Records Manual at
