4 Ways Augusta Data Storage Can Help with Your Medical RecordsPosted on February, 21 2019
As privacy laws continue to change, businesses and service providers who handle personally identifiable information face many challenges in staying up-to-date on compliance requirements.
While many healthcare providers have moved to Electronic Healthcare Records, some still have a backlog of older patient records that need to be archived in a storage area or digitized and uploaded into their new electronic records management systems. No matter how you’re managing these records security and compliance should be top-of-mind.
We recognize that patient care and managing your practice is your first priority and that is why we work to maintain a comprehensive records management program designed to fit the needs of our area’s healthcare providers.
RECORD STORAGE SERVICES
While many new medical records are created in digital format, healthcare providers still have a variety of archived and possibly active records that require secure storage. If your facility is tight on space, we offer over 100,000 square feet of secure record storage space in our facility.
Our warehouse is outfitted with restricted entry access points, video surveillance monitoring, and barcode location tracking for each individual record located in our facility.
In addition to storing your records, we also offer 24/7 retrieval access service to ensure that you can have your records when your team needs them.
MEDIA STORAGE SERVICES
