Do You Have a Document Management Plan in Place for Retirement?

Do You Have a Document Management Plan in Place for Retirement?

Are you contemplating retirement? If so, as a physician with your own medical practice, you have more work to do than the standard corporate office worker than just needs to provide HR a few months’ notice of their impending retirement.  There are patients to inform, employees to assist in finding new work, and the contents of your office to deal with. While we’re obviously talking about the office furniture and the medical equipment, unfortunately, that also means the heaps of boxes and jam-packed filing cabinets stuffed with records needs to be tended to.

Does document management really matter when I retire?

Yes, document management for retiring physicians absolutely matters. What would happen if you simply disposed of all those medical records once you locked the doors and your patients needed access to them? You must have a plan in place for document management that both keep these records secure, while still providing easy access in the event an old patient needs copies of their medical records.

What if I don’t have a plan in place already?

If you don’t have a plan put in place already for document management, you should start getting on together! If you’ve got enough on your plate and cannot even contemplate taking on another task on the path to retirement, you can always utilize the help of My Retired Doctor!
