CLOSING YOUR PRACTICE AND DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR PATIENT RECORDS?
Retirement milestone is an important time in your life. Don’t let the ongoing responsibility of storing your existing medical patient records affect how you spend your retirement.
Did you know that once you close your practice you are required to maintain all your patient records for up to 15 years? This can translate to unnecessary storage costs as well as the administrative costs of retrieving patient or medical requests for files. Don’t let this interrupt your retirement life. RASCI will maintain and store all your patient records at *NO CHARGE.
TYPICAL SELF STORAGE UNIT
Don't let this happen to you. Some Physicians believe that they can store all their files in a self mini-storage facility. While in theory this may start as a good idea, but is quickly realized that as you spend time going back and forth to your self storage facility to retrieve records to transfer, your once organized files will begin to look like the photo on the left. We have seen this time and time again. This plan simply does not work and only makes a time where you should be enjoying retirement into a time that will overwhelm you with stress and anxiety.
Let RASCI take this burden away from you, allowing you to enjoy a life of retirement that you deserve.
Whether you have run a 10 or 35 year practice, your loyal patients are important to you. You want to ensure that through your retirement they have found a suitable Physician that will continue the same level of care that they have been accustomed to and deserve.
RASCI will contact each and every patient and if required, RASCI will assist them in finding their next medical care provider. Whether they be transferred to a nearby Medical Clinic or another medical provider of their choice, Records Access Services Canada will ensure that they are looked after as efficiently and expeditiously as possible. RASCI will have all your filed medical records picked up and filed away at our secure storage facility. Your patients will be immediately notified and contacted and all patient requests for transfers will be handled electronically through our Chart Swap Engine.
All services will be fully compliant to PIPEDA and HIPAA Regulations.
YOU ALSO NEED TO TRANSFER YOUR RECORDS IN YOUR EMR SYSTEM
* Depending on how many patient transfers you may have already transferred prior to your practice closing, you may qualify to have all or a portion of our services at no charge to you. Call us today for a consultation on how RASCI can assist in your practice closure.
Some practices will also have a portion of their medical records in an EMR System. You will also need to transfer these records as well for your patients. Let RASCI handle these tasks for you so that the transfers are complete and thorough.
