Record Retrieval Service Providers See Electronic Medical Records As "Imminent Transition"

Share Article

Record retrieval service providers are eagerly awaiting the transition from paper medical records to a comprehensive, national IT health system, as proposed by President Barack Obama. Service providers claim that the use of electronic records improves healthcare, simplifies patient care, reduces errors, and minimizes malpractice claims.

MedSave USA, a leading national provider of medical record retrieval services, is preparing for an imminent technology transition, to be phased in over the next five years: retrieving medical records that have been stored electronically.

"There has been a well-publicized push by the Obama administration to computerize medical records," noted Jeff Baker, president of MedSave USA (http://www.medsaveusa.com). "This initiative will benefit providers and their patients, and will result in a more accurate, cohesive body of medical records for all patients in the United States," he added.

President Barack Obama recently announced that acting in conjunction with Congress, he was prepared to "make the immediate investments necessary to ensure that within five years, all of America's medical records are computerized."

Although MedSave management expects that some records may experience a lag in the transfer to a digital format, the company still applauds the huge undertaking.

"As a medical record retrieval service, our employees interface daily with hundreds of providers who deliver hard-copy records because no requirements exist for electronic medical records," Mr. Baker stated. "We absolutely recognize the positive impact a comprehensive health IT system will have in the U.S."
