Medical Records Management: Solutions for Physician Practices
A number of variables affect the length of time a physician practice should keep a medical record. Factors include state/federal laws,
medical board policies and the record type (for example, an adult versus a pediatric patient). Managing the medical record is an important
responsibility for all practices especially in this changing environment.
This free 90-minute webinar will help you learn about the various rules regarding records retention and solutions for your practice to
consider. We'll also introduce you to Spectrum Information Services Northwest, a WSMA-endorsed partner which offers easy and affordable
solutions that reduce the expense and liability risks of managing your patients' records. SIS NW can assume custodianship of all records,
reducing your risk of HIPAA violations.
This program addresses the following topics:
