In today’s uncertain times, it is essential to ensure your practice is both nimble and resilient. Easy access to your patients’ medical records is always necessary but can be complicated by restrictions on movement and health and safety considerations. Taking advantage of medical record scanning services can help ensure your practice always has access to your patients’ data.
If you haven’t considered digitising your patient files, here are the best reasons why you should try a professional medical record scanning service like Scan2Archive.
1. Improved Accessibility
Digitised files and documents are easier to access compared to paper-based records. Whether working from home or the office, your patients’ records can be made easier to access and review.
2. Improved Resiliency
Storing paper files takes up valuable physical office space and exposes you to the risk of data loss. Digitised files can be backed up in various locations, both on-site or off-site or even in the cloud. Medical document scanning can keep your patients’ records safe and secure.
Hardcopy documents are in many cases, a challenge to sort and manage. Searching for important information on your patient’s medical history through paper stored in filing cabinets, can more often than not be frustrating and time-consuming. Digitised medical records can be searched in a matter of seconds, especially when your digital files are properly organised and managed.
Medical document scanning can help you comply with modern medical record retention standards and data privacy regulations. Instead of relying on a paper-based system, your practice can adopt a more efficient data management process using digitised files.
