Most healthcare practices have huge volume of paper based patient medical documents that take up a significant amount of storage space. These documents have to be kept safe from damage and misplacement. Moreover, filing and accessing these documents can be a cumbersome task.
With the US government going forward with the full scale implementation of electronic health records or EHRs, it’s important for healthcare facilities and physician practices to convert their paper documents to digital for integration into with the new system. Medical document scanning can be a time consuming task. Additionally, the documents have to be indexed and filed into the EMR/EHR. Outsourcing the scanning task is the most feasible option.
