As health care providers migrate from paper charts to electronic medical records (EMR), a legacy of inactive paper charts stays behind. Most of these charts remain inactive until ultimately destroyed at the end of their retention schedule. While the information contained in each chart is still vital, managing the paper is cumbersome and expensive.

In most cases, medical records are stored free of charge - a fee applies only when a chart is requested. To streamline the record request process, an automatic chart scan based on upcoming patient appointments is also available.

Save Valuable Space and Money
Lease rates in medical buildings are expensive, yet much of the space used in a medical clinic is devoted to storing paper medical records. Space needed to store medical records, particularly archived/inactive charts, often expands into exam rooms, off-site mini-storage and other valuable workspace. With the migration to EMR, the paper chart is becoming an expensive and cumbersome legacy of outdated management practices.
At Records Bank, we scan medical records into a digital format that can, in most cases, be attached to a patient's EMR. By utilizing a scan-on-demand method, rather than back-scanning all archived paper charts, Records Bank will greatly reduce your cost of converting to an EMR.
As an extension of your HIM staff, Records Bank manages all aspects of the release of information process. Relevant information is retrieved from the existing paper and/or electronic file. The retrieved information is consolidated and converted into one digital file (PDF or TIF). The file is scanned by character recognition software, which enables the reader to search by keywords for fast retrieval.
