The Problem: Converting Paper Medical Records

One of the big challenges for a medical practice implementing an EMR has been converting paper medical records—but not anymore. Thousands of EMRs are being implemented nationwide without consideration of the medical practice’s largest informational asset: medical records.

While it’s possible to manually scan patient charts within an EMR itself, the process is error-prone, time-consuming, and can take years to complete.

As a result, practitioners are working in an environment that is half paper-based and half electronic. This creates more than an inefficient operation and could lead to costly errors.

Wouldn’t your time be better spent on patient care and revenue producing activities?

Our Solution—Scanning and Archiving Medical Records

How can you convert years of medical records in an efficient and affordable manner? At KWCG, we specialize in scanning and archiving medical records.

We’re experienced professionals utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and software designed to create high image quality while greatly lessening the risk of missed information. For example, our sonar technology prevents the scan of two pages simultaneously while our software creates high image quality.

We offer data import into a multitude of software platforms including, but not limited to, Allscripts-Misys, E Clinical Works, E Meds, Med Stats, NextGen, Sage Intergy, Soapware and Visionary.

We'll convert your entire collection of medical records not in weeks or months - but in days. And working with KWCG is cost-effective because our rates start at just $0.04 per page.

Moreover, KWCG provides you with the support you need after medical chart conversion. After you’ve implemented an EMR and have all your paper records in electronic format, practitioners and staff will enter the majority of patient data electronically. That data that cannot be entered electronically, such as drivers’ licenses, insurance cards and third-party paper records—will be scanned with small office scanners.
