In my role as Provider Engagement Specialist at MediSked, I often have the opportunity to visit our Partner Agencies and tour their offices.
One of the more remarkable things that I am seeing frequently on my visits is the reclaiming of space that was previously used to store notes and documentation.
As agencies are now doing their notes contemporaneously in MediSked Connect – Agency Management Platform, they are now storing less paper records.
As the retention dates of older records come and go, agencies are able to free physical space that was once used to store mini forests worth of paper.
One of our partners that was considering moving to a new office space so that they could have a conference room, instead decided to scan these necessary documents in order to attach them to the More Information Page of the person that they supported for access to the documents as needed.
The last time I visited this agency, the meeting was held in the conference room that they created right in the same office that they once considered moving from, but instead reclaimed the space from paper storage!
MediSked Connect – Agency Management Platform, can help agencies streamline their documentation and make it accessible when needed.
Since MediSked Connect came to market in 2003, we have helped many agencies make the transition from paper to electronic documentation drastically reducing the amount of paperwork that is created and then stored. Most of their notes and documentation lives in the cloud and can be accessed by authorized users as needed. Staff no longer have to go to a physical storage space and look through boxes of files or thumb through binders for what they are looking for. There is also a cost savings as many clients no longer need to pay fees for offsite storage. Important information is at their fingertips and can be called up with a search in MediSked Connect.
Maybe they are sitting in that reclaimed space on a laptop and getting all the data they need (minus all the paper cuts), in an instance.
What could you do with all the space being taken up by boxes full of paper?
