Are you kidding me?

Oh the misinformed... A large medical practice (smaller than the hospital) with say 50 providers in a paper system would need 10 medical record staff (with benefits) at a cost of almost $300k per year. Once all medical records are scanned, administrative staff may electronically from a number of programs fax medical records (under HIPAA guidelines) in a matter of seconds. Coding can be integrated into many software platforms as well. If you replace three coders that is an additional savings of $225k per year. If you have ten departments you could be able to drop one staff person per department whcih would save another $350k per year.. $875,000 per year savings minus $250k per year software - Where do you see the negative financial aspect of this? Not to mention the added security of your healthcare, billing, and personal information not being all over paper all over the world.. And you see disavdantages to this? Can you explain how this makes things worse?
