Serving Washington, DC, Northern Virginia, & Maryland
With the highly sensitive nature of patient’s medical records, coupled with stiff penalties for HIPAA Privacy violations, it’s essential that health care providers and their staff keep that data organized and secure. If your medical office suffers from disorganized record storage, your files are kept in various locations, or are overflowing, you-and your patients-could benefit greatly from digital medical record storage.
Better Patient Care
By using digital medical record storage, health care providers and their staff are able to manage patient information electronically, in a highly secure manner. This not only enables for patient information to be protected in the highest level, but also allows review of information, a more comprehensive patient history and sharing of patient information within a given practice.
Digital patient records and electronic storage improve overall care of the patient by immediately identifying those who need regular medical tests, screenings and preventative care. Patients who are at risk, or have certain chronic conditions can be referenced and sent reminders for vaccinations, blood pressure assessment, and cholesterol and diabetes testing. With an electronic data trail, healthcare providers can track and monitor a patient’s information over time.

The Benefits of Digital Medical Record Storage
The following are some of the benefits of scanning your medical records and storing them digitally:
- Medical records won’t get lost – There’s always a risk of physical medical records being misplaced when they are filed away, making them difficult to locate again. Not to mention that physical medical records can be stolen, damaged or completely destroyed due to a number of reasons. When storing your medical records digitally, you ensure that they cannot be destroyed since they will be properly backed up. They’ll never get lost either since a simple search will bring them up immediately.
- Medical records will be easily accessible – It’s essential for medical practitioners to be able to access medical records for their patients as soon as possible. Not being able to do so can not only make them less efficient as far as time is concerned, it could be detrimental to the health of their patients. By storing medical records digitally, medical practitioners should be able to access them instantly while with their patients.
- Medical records will be more accurate – Medical records that have been damaged or contain handwriting can be difficult to read. The writing on older records can become smeared or less legible over time as well. Electronic records will preserve the medical information that was written down.
- Physical storage space will not be required – The space you are using in order to store physical medical records can be used for a better purpose if you decide to store your records digitally instead. For example, the room could be used as another patient room or office instead of just a storage area. Not to mention that over the years, you may end up running out of room if you store physical records, which will present another difficult challenge.
