4 Benefits of Medical Records Storage Systems

Updated on May 12, 2016

Working in a medical office means many things, as there are no two days in a row that are exactly alike. Every day you are seeing different people and encountering new scenarios. As such, it is vital that you take copious notes and then file those notes and information away for future use. Especially in the days before the computer was commonplace, this meant an abundance of papers and, eventually, rooms full of file boxes.

Of course, with the digital age the promise of a paperless office emerged, and it delighted offices of every type - from the medical to the manufacturer. But, sadly, we discovered that instead of decreasing the amount of paper used, the amount seemingly increased. Hmm... whatever happened to the paperless office, and is there a solution?

Today, there is an answer to reams of paper and rooms full of file cabinets. Enter electronic medical storage or as some call it, Electronic Health Records (EHR). Today's medical facilities can now easily store patient information, pass along that information to other doctors when needed, and even grant access to patients to see their medical plan, with ease. With EHR, there is no more waiting for the assisting doctor to receive your medical records via snail mail, no more risk of things being lost in the mail, and easier collaboration between doctors as well as patients.

Additional benefits of swapping to electronic medical record storage include:

· The ability to provide better care for your patients. Because it is easy to share information in real-time, you can always know how to proceed in a given scenario.

· You can send automatic reminders to patients about upcoming appointments.

· No more lost prescriptions. You can automatically send the pharmacist of your patient's choice the prescription so there is no risk of the patient misplacing the paperwork.

· Thanks to the Medicare EHR Incentive Program, you can earn incentives towards helping your staff transition from a paper-based office, to a paperless office.

There are many reasons to swap over to electronic medical record storage, and yet many offices still have not made the switch. If your office has still not made the transition to a paperless office, why not talk to some offices ho have and learn what they have to say about it. Then, talk companies such as RDM of Trenton, and learn how swapping to electronic health records can help you. You will be amazed at how much space you will find in your office, as well as how much more efficient your office is.
