Paper Records versus Electronic Health Records
In Part VII of our series, Patient Records Requests: What You Need to Know, we talk with attorney Richard J. Rymond of Reminger Co., LPA about the difference between paper records and electronic health records. As Richard explains, though the medium is different, physicians and healthcare providers should treat both types of records the same. In either case, it is vital to make sure that the records provided to the patient are complete. For electronic health records, this may mean that different views or screens will need to be printed in order to show all the information, and it is important that this is done correctly.
