RDM Inc Medical Records Scanning

From the moment a patient record is created, it must be appropriately stored, secured, and maintained. After it has been retained for the necessary amount of time, the record must be properly destroyed. There is a complex set of rules and regulations regarding medical records management, and for good reason. When health records are mismanaged, patients are put at risk. That’s where we come in. We are up to date on all of the latest regulations and can help you ensure all of your records are kept safe and secure. 

With proper medical records management from Resource Data Management you can rest assured you have implemented the correct procedures and protocols for your most sensitive of records. When you hire us for medical records management, we can handle everything from preparing the documents to scanning to indexing and importing data into your Electronic Medical Records (EMR)/Electronic Health Record (EHR) System. We take our time to make sure that each and every document we scan is accurate and that the scan itself is clear and legible. 

You will find your digital documents are easy to find and utilize via the computer network. Doctors and nurses will spend less time writing notes, and more time interacting with patients.
