What starts out as a few shelves grows over time and can take over entire rooms due to the ever-changing regulations of medical retention schedules. Record Nations offers medical data abstraction services, allowing an optimized way to handle your medical records while saving storage space utilizing an off site facility.
Why Medical Data Abstraction is Important
The use of data abstraction services as a method of medical records management will provide the practice with the ability to have the medical information for frequent patients or future appointments in their Electronic Health Records System (EHR).
Medical data abstraction services provide you with a solution that encompasses partial/full record scanning along with populating your most important data into your new EHR.
Clinical abstractions can provide you with the comfort of entering the patient information you determine is best suited for your patient population. By entering this information from the original paper or digital source via a clinical data abstraction template and EHR. This allows for the information to be used as it was designed and intended, as a form of medical records storage and your medical records backup.
