Medical Records

The Healthcare Industry faces unique challenges with regards to Records and Information Management. Record volumes continue to soar while Legislation creates stricter guidelines for Compliance, such as the Protection of Personal Information Act (2013).

Health Practitioners know that the information contained within Medical Records is highly sensitive and personal, and proper protection of this information means complying with the various Regulations, such as POPI and the HPCSA Guidelines on the keeping of Patient Records.

Keeping and protecting these Records and Documents can be an overwhelming proposition and, if it isn't done right, an expensive one. These Records contain information that is necessary to treat patients properly, and need to be managed, be accessible and kept safely in addition to the Compliance with the various Regulations.
