Keep reading to learn more about getting your medical records organized and how My Retired Doctor can help!
- Read up on state and federal requirements for record retention
- Securely shred records you are not required to keep
- Consider off-site storage of medical records
The first, and most important step, when it comes to spring cleaning your filing cabinets is to read up on the state and federal requirements for medical and billing record retention. There are certain retention requirements that you should ensure you adhere to in order to avoid getting a fine or citation. Once you’ve read up on these requirements, then you can begin organizing your records.
The next step is to start shredding medical records that you are not required to keep. If you do not need these records, it’s a good idea to ensure that they are securely shredded in order to keep sensitive patient information safe.
If there are records you need to keep—or if you decide you want to keep them all—but your filing cabinets are too full, you can also consider off shite storage for your medical records. We have a secure storage facility that will keep your records safe!
