Medical Records and Retention Periods

Hospitals are required to keep medical records for long periods of time, this requirement accumulates large amounts of paper and very large overheads.

These records are important for compliance and medico-legal purposes.  So it is something that needs to be done.

Bottom line is it is the Medical Directors accountability to properly manage Medical Records.

Scanned Medical Records

Why do you need to scan them?

In order to effectively store offiste, hospitals need to have ready access to the documents. 

The only way to do this is to scan, index records for search and store them inside a Document Management System.  Otherwise the cost of retrieval from Records Management providers goes up.

Data Privacy

Storing offsite also give the hospitals more control over documents.  There will be no more uncontrolled copies of medical records lying around the hospital premises.
