Digital Conversion Services for Healthcare

Converting existing patient charts into digital records can be a challenge for healthcare providers, taking away from the core focus on patient care.

As the adoption of Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Electronic Health Records (EHR) continue, there is an increasing need for medical records scanning. In addition to regulatory mandates, healthcare providers are challenged by the need to provide patient information access virtually any time and anywhere, to help facilitate well-coordinated, quality patient care. Healthcare providers need to support the requirements for the retention of patient records, while trying to minimize file storage space and reduce administrative costs.
