Healthcare Records Overload
Microfilm and paper records has been the main storage media of choice for healthcare until recently, when the prevalence of digital records started increasing. Today, many healthcare facilities still have libraries of microfilm, on top of their paper documents. With ever-increasing medical records, hospitals and other healthcare providers are quickly overwhelmed with the amount of paper and microfilm they have to store. Many hospitals are now using medical records for their patients.

Digital Documents Replacing Microfilm & Paper
The healthcare industry tends to be paper-intensive, and many of them are looking for easy and secure ways to control their increasing volumes of paper documents and microfilm. Digital records offer access and archiving advantages, along with security and ease of organization and retrieval. For healthcare facilities in particular, having patient records on hand and easily accessible is of the utmost importance. However, it can be difficult knowing just where to start (for example, if you want to scan active records, inactive records, or both).
