Electronic Medical Records: Keeping Up with the Affordable Care Act

The 2015 EMR/EHR implementation deadline is swiftly approaching. It may not seem so close but, depending on the size and history of your maintained paper records, this could be a daunting task (to say the least) for some healthcare providers. Though there are a few early hurdles, the industry will be better overall with electronic medical records scanning, Trenton and the surrounding areas especially.

Today, true records management must encompass both digital and non-digital content. Neither a Document Storage and Retention Strategy, nor an Enterprise Content Management System, can meet the requirement autonomously, so companies must effectively manage both physical and digital information to guarantee smooth operations.

How Resource Data Management helps tackle this for healthcare providers:

MEDICAL RECORD STORAGE

Interim solution: While you’re in the process of scanning, store your medical documents securely in our records management facility. We can efficiently store and track patient charts in hard-copy format using our advanced bar code technology, and we can quickly retrieve them in the event that a chart is needed.

MEDICAL RECORD SCANNING

Whether you choose to store your paper-based charts or scan them all from the beginning, RDM has services to help. We offer outsourced patient chart scanning so you can retrieve medical records directly from your desktop or EMR system, along with Scan on Demand Services to deliver paper-based charts in imaged format.

The bottom line is that the Affordable Care Act is just one more imperative step in providing society with the proper healthcare. This includes completing the overdue transition from the out-of-date reliance on paper medical records to the cost-efficiencies and increased patient privacy protections, afforded by  Resource Data Management’s modern electronic medical scanning.
