- Our team accesses the batches based on required criteria and indexes each batch as per the client requirement and placed it in folders
- Each batch is checked for indexing accuracy by the QA staff
- Using six sigma methods, errors are tracked for correction/action and preventive action
- The work is ready for review at client end
- The team can also upload the electronic data into EHR directly
Proven and Efficient Medical Records Indexing Workflow — A Key Differentiator that Sets Us Apart from Other Medical Records Indexing Companies
Being a premium medical record scanning and indexing company, we take great pride in implementing a proven and efficient workflow to index medical records. This workflow can be outlined as follows
- Unitization: Patient files are reviewed to assess their logical boundaries and are accordingly grouped for review purposes
- Consolidation: Patient files are reviewed for duplication and/or unnecessary documentation. Documents which are not essential are separated or deleted as per client’s directive
- Summarization: Every minute details in the file are scrutinized and a summary is prepared. The summary provides a comprehensive overview of a patient’s file
- Coding and Indexing: Key information pertaining to the file such as procedures, dates, record type or facility/provider names are captured — for use in keyword searches — and customized indexing fields are developed to meet client specific needs
- Categorization: The key information that is captured during indexing is used to organize individual documents into categories and subcategories that are denied by the clients for streamlined access
- Sorting: Records within each category are chronologically sorted in client specified order
- Bookmarking: After sorting and organizing the records, they are converted into PDF with bookmarks that are essential for quick access using per client defined criterions
- OCR: Finally, OCR software is used to make every record text-searchable
