Why Scan my Paper Charts?
Physicians are required by law to maintain a medical record for each patient that completely and accurately documents the person's evaluation and treatment. All records for must be maintained for 10 years - Obstetrical and minor patient records must be held for 10 years or until the patient is 20 1/2 - whichever is longer.
The failure to maintain a record for each patient constitutes professional misconduct, which could endanger a physicians license to practice medicine. Further, a missing clinical record (or portion thereof) may have serious consequences on your ability to defend yourself in a malpractice suit. If you can't produce the records, your version of the events will be suspect.
Hiring temporary staff and buying your own equipment may seem slightly less expensive that scanning services, but the risks associated with inadequate quality control and lack of experience quickly offset the savings.
