Medical Records Management Pennsylvania
Before modern technology, managing medical records was relatively straight-forward. Patient information was recorded on paper charts, which were stored in office filing cabinets. As technology and medicine practices have rapidly changed, so have medical records and medical records management. Pennsylvania medical practices are still learning to manage physical records in a digital environment. Medical professionals have a legal and ethical obligation to protect patient information and properly manage records. Failure to do so can result in medical errors and data breaches, which can lead to costly fines.
As a practice, you are responsible for patient information throughout the entirety of the data lifecycle. 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.
