Preparing Medical Records for Scanning in Fresno
HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is a law that was passed in 1996. The law was made for several purposes, including ensuring the confidential handling of health records.
Files need to be properly handled during storage and scanning projects. It’s important to remain compliant with HIPAA and its privacy regulations.
Our medical record scanning is a simple, hassle-free process:
- Fill out the form or give us a call at (559) 339-0572 with the details of your project so we can get an accurate quote. It’s important to provide an estimate of boxes for the project.
- A secure local scanning contractor will contact you shortly.
- Each provider in your area will send you a customized quote based on your requirements.
- Then, you select the provider that fits your needs best, and they’ll start the scanning process.
Using a medical records storage service will help you open up office space, increase productivity, and reduce the chance of medical records being lost. It’s important to find a records storage facility that will be able to give you access whenever you need it.
Secure offsite medical records storage companies provide you with an easy way to back up and store critical patient files. You can even limit who has access to the files and set different levels of security to protect patient privacy.
Medical Records Custodian
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.
California law requires patient files to be stored for at least seven years.
Using a medical custodian takes the liability off of you or your practice. Hiring a company to manage your facility’s medical records ensures you will remain in compliance and your past patients will continue to receive care and support.
Record Nations Fresno can help you find a local provider to manage your records, release needed information and destroy the records after the retention period.
