Patient care has evolved for the better with increased access to medical data and the digitization of patient files. Quick retrieval of up-to-date health records helps providers make accurate medical decisions and coordinate care between specialists. Transitioning to digital will improve patient care, save money on storage, and keep your practice in compliance with HIPAA standards.
Medical record scanning services convert your files by using digital imaging. We create clear, consistent images of your paper files and convert them to a digital format. Medical record storage allows you to move your remaining paper files offsite and securely store them throughout their retention period.
Record Nations Tacoma looks forward to helping your practice digitize and organize your patient files and medical records. We will instantly connect you with reliable medical record scanning and storage providers in your area. Our providers offer secure, high-quality services. Call us at (253) 292-3235 or fill out the form to being the digitization process right away.

Medical Records Storage Services
Going digital reduces costs by eliminating a large amount of physical files. However, you will still have files that need to be retained physically. For those files, we offer medical record storage. Our secured storage facilities will protect your records from theft, loss, and damages with advanced security and constant monitoring. You will enjoy customized security and around the clock retrieval options.
Medical Records Custodian
If a healthcare facility closes, a company should be appointed as the custodian to manage the patient records. Each state has different rules and guidelines for how long a record needs to be stored. Washington requires medical records to be kept for at least 10 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 Tacoma can help you find a local provider to manage your records, release needed information and destroy the records after the retention period.
