Why Should You Scan Your Medical Records and Document Charts?
Physicians are required by law to maintain a medical record for each patient that fully and exactly documents the person's evaluation and treatment. All records for must be maintained for 10 years. Obstetrical and minor patient records must be held for 10 years or until the patient is 20 ½, whichever is longer.
The failure to preserve a medical record for each patient constitutes professional misconduct, which could jeopardize a physician’s license to practice medicine. Furthermore, a missing medical record (or portion thereof) could have serious consequences on your ability to defend yourself in a malpractice suit because if you can't produce the records, your account of the events could be doubted.
