Full Outsourcing Solution for Medical Archive Management at a Glance
Take advantage of our all-inclusive, full archive outsourcing solution and never worry about your medical archive again.
We’ll take care of everything. It’s that simple.
Inventory of Existing Patient Archive, Transportation & Offsite Storage
Our team will conduct a full, on-site inventory of your entire archive of existing patient files and register every single file in our state-of-the-art archive management system. We will then carefully pack your medical files in specially designed archive boxes and safely transport them to our secure storage facility. Throughout the entire process the exact status and location of each individual file is known in real time, which means that you never have to worry that any document would ever fall through the cracks.
Pick-up of New & Daily Medical Documents at Regular Intervals
In addition to the backlog of already existing medical records which constitute your patient archive, you will also have an influx of new patient related documents on a daily basis that need to be archived and managed. For example, these could be documents associated with newly admitted patients. We will pick up these documents from your hospital’s site(s) at agreed-upon regular intervals and transport them to our storage & scanning facility. We will then scan these documents and associate them with the correct patient file in the iGuana iDM digital archiving system.
Retention Management & Confidential Destruction of Medical Files
We will develop an individual retention plan for each type of file / document. From then on you will never have to worry about which files must be retained and for what period. Our system will automatically issue reminders to our staff letting our experts know when the documents in question can be legally destroyed. Medical files eligible for destruction will then be transported to the certified confidential destruction facility for secure destruction according to standards appropriate for the destruction of medical documents with subsequent issuance of an official certified destruction certificate.
Software to Access Medical Records & Request Scanning or Delivery on Demand
We will provide your medical staff / doctors with secure access to the iGuana iDM document management & digital archiving software. By logging into the software, doctors will be able to access electronic medical files of their patients, see which files or documents have not yet been digitized and to request these paper documents to be scanned on demand when needed by the doctor. Alternatively, they can also request for physical files to be delivered. iGuana iDM software maintains information about the physical location of paper records in our storage facility so that they can be easily retrieved, scanned (or delivered) on request and made available through the iGuana iDM system to the requesting doctor.
Integration with Your Appointment Management System, HIS & EHR
We can integrate the iGuana iDM digital archiving software with your appointment management system, such as UltraGenda. Through integration, iGuana staff will know in advance which patient documents need to scanned and delivered to the doctor in digital format well in advance of their patient appointment. From a doctor’s perspective, they will always have access to the required patient files on time with a press of a button. In addition, we can integrate with your HIS (Hospital Information System) and your EHR (Electronic Health Record) system via HL7, providing doctors with a unified view of each patient and their complete file.
