How Medical Record Scanning Works

electronic health records electronic medical records ehr emrSetting up a medical records scanning project is a fast and simple process. Our professional local providers handle all the scanning and uploading. Once you hand them the boxes of your records, it won’t be long until you can access them from anywhere. The process looks like this:

  1. You Prepare documents to be scanned by placing documents and files into labeled boxes to be transported for scanning.
  2. The scanner takes the records and transports them securely to a facility to begin the conversion process. However, if you need to conduct the process on site, they instead take their scanners to your location.
  3. Experts then scan and convert your documents to a digital format, ensuring accuracy every step of the way.
  4. Records are converted into desired formats and stored on an electronic health record system or document management system of your choosing.
  5. Physical files are either returned to the hospital, office or clinic, or sent to an offsite storage unit until the retention period expires.

While you can store the records you need on an internal server, hard drive, or even DVDs, we recommend an Electronic Medical Records System (EMR).  These systems are specifically designed for healthcare organizations, and make it easy for your employees and patients to access any information they need.
