Healthcare Records Management
Iron Mountain has worked with thousands of hospitals and healthcare organizations to ensure their records remain securely protected, while easily accessible for improved patient care. Our experts are available for a wide range of projects, applying best practices refined from hundreds of healthcare engagements. Here are just a few of the services we can provide:
- Pack/Purge/Shift — Without regularly scheduled purging and shifting, your file room will quickly outgrow capacity. With Iron Mountain’s purging services, you can free up valuable onsite storage space. Additionally, your patient files are safely stored and managed, according to your retention policy, in a local Iron Mountain record center. We can also compress your files to better utilize open-shelf storage space and reduce operating expenses.
- Dropfiling/Interfiling — Keeping up with loose sheet filing and maintaining records in their proper sequence are common health information management challenges. Iron Mountain can help alleviate these challenges by providing filing services on an outsourced basis or by helping you develop workflow procedures that empower your staff to dropfile loose papers and interfile records consistently and reliably.
- Master Patient Index (MPI) Cleanup — Whether your records are paper or in an electronic format, maintaining an accurate Master Patient Index (MPI) is important to track patients within your facility and across patient care settings. Iron Mountain can help eliminate duplicate patient folders, reduce operating costs, mitigate risks and enhance data integrity for improved patient care.
Iron Mountain acts as a seamless extension of your organization, allowing you to focus on your core business. We can support one-time, short-term projects, or on-going, end-to-end solution engagements that allow your staff to better manage their time and resources
