What is medical record retrieval?
Across the world and especially in the USA, medical record privacy has become a thing of concern. So most of the major healthcare networks have moved on to virtual record keeping. This makes record management easier and safer too.
Medical record retrieval is the process of requesting permission to access these confidential documents for legal and insurance claims. The medical record retrieval process is also one of the steps in the medical summarization process. This involves liasoning with the patient, patient’s kin, and the healthcare provider’s team, and even the database management firm to arrive at the required records.
Without a streamlined medical record retrieval process, processing medical malpractice claims, insurance claims, and personal injury claims can be very challenging.
