Medical records scanning and medical records storage go hand in hand. When you convert patient records to digital files, you will still need to store and retrieve some physical medical records offsite. You will need to find a document management company that specializes in both.
Record Nations partners with companies that offer full-service scanning and storage for medical practices, hospitals, and other healthcare related businesses. Our image processing and storage facilities are HIPAA and HITECH compliant. They can index, scan, or store many documents for an affordable price.
Preparing Medical Records for Scanning

- Choose a provider and together you can begin converting your files to a digital system.
Medical Records Storage Services
Offsite storage provides a place to store medical files that have not met their retention dates or that need to be available for retrieval or backup.
Our monitored, secure storage facilities protect your documents from being lost or stolen. You can limit access to your files and set different levels of security for your files as needed. You can rest easy knowing your documents are safe with Record Nations.
Medical Records Custodian
When a healthcare facility in Cranston closes, a person or company is appointed as the custodian to manage the patient records. Rhode Island requires that medical records and patient files be stored for a minimum of five 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. With either option, 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.
