Simple and Affordable Medical Record Management for Retiring Physicians

Simple and Affordable Medical Record Management for Retiring Physicians

If you are thinking of retiring you need to have a solid plan in place for document management when your practice closes.

Where are your records being stored?

What files can be shredded and which records need to be kept?

Should you go digital?

Will your patients have access to records after you’ve retired?

These are all questions that need to be seriously considered before you close up shop. Thankfully, My Retired Doctor provides document management services to retiring physicians such as yourself, including:

Scanning

If you don’t want to worry about paper records after you retire, why not go digital? At My Retired Doctor, we offer record scanning and conversion services. We can take paper files and transform them into digital records that are easier for patients and doctors alike. From lab results and immunization records to medical transcripts and insurance records, we do it all. Plus, once the records have been converted to digital, we can store them for you as you sail off into retirement.

Shredding

Some records do not need to be stored after you retire, but that doesn’t mean you can just toss them in a garbage bin. Many records from medical offices need to be securely destroyed and we can help with that. We offer HIPAA compliant shredding services to ensure that records are disposed of in accordance with all HIPAA standards. This means that you can rest assured it is handled in a secure and appropriate manner.

Storage

One issue that doctors face when they retire is where to store the medical records and other necessary documents. You can’t simply dump boxes in your basement and forget about them because these records contain private and personal information about your patients. With My Retired Doctor at the helm, we can store either original paper records or EMR records at our secure storage facility. Our practices adhere to HIPAA standards to keep sensitive medical data secure.

Release of Information Provider

When you retire your patients still need to have access to their medical records. However, fulfilling record requests can eat into a considerable amount of your free time once in retirement. That’s why My Retired Doctor should serve as your Release of Information custodian. Allow us to ensure that your patients can access their information while you enjoy retirement.
