Medical records scanning converts your patient records to a digital format that can be used with an Electronic Health Record System (EHR). EHRs provide technical features that maximize efficiency and capability for providers while also safeguarding private information and maintaining retention schedules.
Medical records storage services provide a safe and HIPAA compliant space for inactive records. You will be able to retrieve files when needed and rest assured that your records are safe in our secured facilities.
Preparing Medical Records for Scanning
Digital patient files and EMRs improve patient care in a number of ways. They make it easy to monitor care over time, allow reports and test results to be available instantly, and minimize processing times for billing.

Medical Records Storage Services
Scanning services can digitize the majority of your files to reduce your storage costs. Some documents will still need to be retained physically for legal purposes or to serve as backup for critical files. Medical record storage services will safely store your records in compliance with HIPAA regulations.
Our secure storage facilities offer many security features to prevent loss, theft, and damage to your records. We have climate control, 24/7 surveillance, and customized access levels. You will be able to retrieve your documents as needed, but will not have to worry that your records are accessible to unauthorized personnel.
Medical Records Custodian
When a Burlingame healthcare facility closes, a person or company is appointed as the custodian to manage the patient records. California requires patient files to be accessible for at least 7 years.
Custodians of medical records can store physical copies in a secure storage facility or scan the documents and store them electronically using an EMR system. Patient records must be readily available upon request. Failure to produce forms could result in fines or penalties.
Record Nations can help you find a local provider to manage your records, release needed information and destroy the records after the retention period.
