Have you thought about implementing an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) in your Physician Group? Will your physicians and office staff embrace your EMR if they don’t have all of their patient data in one location? Many physician practices migrate their day forward records to digital, but what about the backfile of patient charts still on the shelf? Will patient care suffer if you do not have all of your information consolidated? This is where TAB Imaging Services can help you, regardless of your EMR solution. Let TAB Imaging Services help you get all of your paper charts into your EMR system, allowing you to focus on caring for your patients.
EMR adoption is critical to meeting today’s healthcare standards. No doubt you have considered the best way to get patient information into your new EMR system. As a HIM professional you may plan ahead and scan paper records in advance of appointments or as free time allows. What invariably happens is the backfile records conversion takes longer and costs more than anyone had imagined.
EMR systems are designed for patient care, not production scanning. Overall costs for scanning in the physician office are as much as 50-60% higher
than working with an outsourced professional like TAB Imaging Services.
Before You Begin, Ask Yourself:
Where are you going to get the staff and equipment required? If you see 100 patients each day, this may require 50 hours of scanning labor – that’s 7-8 staff members!
How do you efficiently manage a scanning operation that continues to decline in activity?
Do you have the expertise to manage this type of operation?
Do you have the technical resources?
Do you have the space?
With over 12 year’s of imaging and document conversion experience, TAB knows what it takes to get the job done quickly and cost effectively. TAB can complete the scanning for an average sized clinic in as few as 2-3 weeks. Consider what you can do with the space previously occupied by your paper charts!
