The Cost of Medical Records Scanning

Giving an exact cost for medical records scanning is difficult with each project requiring its own unique customizations and features that impact the final price. That being said, we’ve created a guide with the most common customizations that are requested including a breakdown of the costs that are typically associated with them.

Pricing Factors of Medical Records Scanning

On average, medical records scanning ranges from 7-12 cents for each page scanned. Factors for determining the final costs will include the following:

Medical Records Scanning

The Amount of Document Preparation Required

If your medical records have a lot of staples, clips, and fasteners, or you need files to be sorted based on sections and sub-sections of the chart, you’ll likely be toward the higher end of the pricing scale.

The Volume of Medical Records to be Converted

Like many other products and services, document scanning prices decrease accordingly with an increase in how many documents you need to scan. The price per page scanned builds in all of the setup and administrative costs, and those are offset by having a higher number of pages to convert.

Things to consider that may impact the project costs include double-sided pages and if you want your scanning done at your location or performed offsite.

The Indexing Criteria Required

It is pretty standard to be able to search for Patient Information based on First Name, Last Name, and Medical Record ID Number in an EMR system.

However, if you want to add additional information to your images—including phone number, addresses, etc.—it will require more time and ultimately cost more per image price.

Medical Records Scanning Return on Investment (ROI)

Another thing to consider when estimating the cost of medical record scanning is the ROI of the project. This EMR/EHR ROI Calculator can help you estimate just how much converting to an electronic document management system can save your practice.
