If you’re a Medical Practitioner, have you ever felt overwhelmed by the ever-growing pile of patient files and medical records clogging up your office? Apart from taking up valuable office space, these files are cumbersome to search through. If these issues sound familiar, then it might be time to go digital!
Medical document scanning is the process of converting paper-based patient files into computer-readable digital files. Digital versions of your files are much more portable and durable than their physical counterparts. With that being said, here are the top 3 reasons to find a medical record scanning service and go paperless.
A USB drive full of digitised paper documents can easily replace entire rooms full of filing cabinets. This can free up valuable office space for other uses and is a much more efficient use of resources.
If they are properly archived and protected with a well-thought-out back-up process, then digital files can last indefinitely. Using a combination of industry-standard file formats as well as onsite, offsite, and cloud backups will protect your patient records not just from the ravages of time, but also from fire or flood damage.
There is a growing demand for telehealth and telemedicine where doctors can see, diagnose, and offer treatment to patients via their internet-enabled phone, tablet, computer, or any smart device. Having your patients’ records in digital formats will make them easier to share with your patients during an online consultation.
