Why go digital?
Paper filing can cause major problems for businesses; for starters, when things get busy in the office, it’s easy to rush through this task, often leading to filing errors, causing confusion when retrieval is needed. Additionally, when confidential documents are not safely stored, and instead land themselves in the trash, your company could be at risk should information reach the wrong hands.
Document scanning contributes to maintaining HIPAA compliant, as it protects private customer information from being lost or stolen. Paper records are more difficult to manage and therefore are often misplaced, while document management software increases overall security.
Paperless systems can offer digital backups, offsite backups and multi-location backups. Security measures such as limited access accounts and encryption protect against theft.
