The Benefits of Off-Site Medical Records Storage

A patient’s medical records are bits of delicate, private, sensitive information. Laws require it and any individual patient deserves the utmost in care and respect for their personal medical data. Many offices still operate under an at least partial paper system, or simply have a room of aged archive. In this the digital age, converting paper records to electronic is an all-encompassing and time consuming task—it simply may not be within your offices’ budget and resources to make this conversion swiftly.

Then there is the matter of medical records consuming a massive amount of space in your office. Filing cabinets, filing-wheeled-moving-wall contraptions occupy an area that could be filled with a couple more desks for your administrative team or could well be taken a couple of more patient rooms.

Resource Data Management (RDM) offers off-site medical records storage throughout Delaware, giving you the opportunity to declutter your office. In addition to off-site storage, RDM offers rapid document retrieval (within four hours or next business day), immediate access to your information (24/7, 365), secure document shredding and scan On Demand Services.

Improve Efficiency with Electronic Medical Records Scanning

electronic medical records scanning pa resource data managementElectronic medical records scanning at your PA office can drastically increase efficiency. If you’re worried about how to implement a new scanning procedure, it’s good that you’re looking into it further. After all, you’ve probably collected information and data from your patients the same way for several years, and you’ve probably stored this information and data the same way for just as long.

Our service will handle the scanning and storage of your important documents, and we will make sure it is all available for you to access whenever you need to get it. We can even help make sure you get the right document imaging software for your needs. The software will not be difficult to learn how to use either.

Of course, you will see savings on your printing supplies like ink and paper, and you might not even have to have your printer serviced as much as you used to (since you’re not using it as much as you used to). You will probably see some savings there as well (both time and money).

When it comes to getting the records for your patients, your staff will not have to spend as much time digging around filing cabinets and trying to find what they need. This could help streamline your office and make patient waiting time decrease. This could also lead to happier patients since their time in the waiting room will be minimized – which is always welcomed when your patients aren’t feeling their best for one reason or another!

Finally, saving space also means your medical office will have more room for other, more necessary equipment or you might be able to use that space for additional desks for new employees or staff members.

These are just a handful of ways that electronic medical records scanning can help improve efficiency in your office!

Top Three Advantages of Using a Document Scanning Service

document scanning service harrisburg resource data managementMore and more people are going paperless today in their personal and professional lives. Thanks to the Internet and ever-expanding technology, it is easy to keep everything filed away electronically. Maybe you’re still not sure if you should look into a document scanning service for your Harrisburg office, so here are a few reasons you should consider making the switch.

Save space

Let’s face it: your paper files are probably taking up a lot of space in your office. Each file needs to be tucked into some type of filing system (usually a large metal or wooden cabinet). Those cabinets take up precious floor space in your office. Now try to imagine that space without a bunch of filing cabinets. What would you use it for? More desk space? More space to walk around in? That vision could become a reality when you hire a document scanning service like ours. Simply go through your files, pull the ones you want scanned and shred the rest. Suddenly, you will have a lot more free space in your office for other, more important uses.

Save money

Think about how much you are spending paper, ink and other printing supplies each month. Think about how much paper your office uses to print out records and other important files. Hiring a document scanning service could help your office save money on those supplies, and your office will use a lot less paper too. Not only will your office supply budget be thanking you, but Mother Earth will be thanking you as well.

Improve security

With a document scanning service, you will not have to worry about where you put that file or whether or not you remembered to lock the filing cabinets. Our services are secure and confidential, and we employ every method we can think of to keep your data and records as safe and secure as possible from security breaches and other security-related issues. You will not have to worry that the wrong hands are on your files or that your confidential records are being seen by someone who shouldn’t be seeing them.

These are just a few reasons you should learn more about our document scanning service. When you call us, we can tell you even more.
