The Electronic Medical Records (EMR) evolution in healthcare has arrived along with an entire new set of Health Information Management (HIM) challenges for hospitals, physicians, and clinics.

Release of Information (ROI)

Secure and Compliant Release-of-Information

Medical record processing, also known as the release-of-information to authorized requestors, is a challenging task that places strain on medical staff. If you’re a healthcare provider in search of a more productive alternative to handling your medical record requests in a HIPAA-compliant manner, Vital Records Control can help.

Our highly-trained experts exceed HIPAA compliance to ensure the safe and timely processing of your various medical records requests:

  • Patient Transfers
  • Continuing Care Requests
  • Insurance Requests
  • Attorney Requests
  • Disability Requests
  • Subpoena Requests
  • HEDIS Requests
  • Deceased or Departing Physicians

When a medical record is summoned from your facility, our HIPAA-certified specialists follow a 12-point checking process before a requested file is processed. Once requests are processed, our Quality Assurance team follows a stringent protocol checking for accuracy before the delivery of data to an authorized party.

HITRUST-Certified ROI Portal

Treating Every Medical Record Request as a Priority

Unlike other medical record service providers, we understand your medical records need to be delivered promptly and treat every record request as a priority. Additionally, we limit the release of a paper medical records through the mail. Your medical records can be uploaded to a highly secure e-delivery portal or delivered to you with up-to-date tracking information. All data is secured and password-protected CD when provided to authorized parties.

Each account is assigned a customer service rep to perform all the release-of-information services for your medical facility. Our representative acts as a liaison with requestors, eliminating unnecessary phone calls for your practice.

Data Integrity

MPI Data Integrity Services

A patient’s complete medical history should be immediately available to medical staff when a patient requires treatment. However, if a patient has more than one medical record number in their MPI and their history is divided, the results can be life-threatening. Furthermore, if demographics and insurance information are incorrect, there can be a substantial adverse impact on reimbursement for your facility.

Fortunately, Vital Records Control offers solutions for reducing the number of duplicates and further improving the information necessary to treat patients and to bill those services correctly. Our data integrity team is highly trained in investigation and remediation of data errors. We work with you to create improvement and maintenance plans to minimize the risks and costs associated with records management.

Our systems and procedures are HIPAA and HITECH compliant. Therefore ePHI exchanges are secure.

What can improving data integrity do for your facility?
  • Complete medical histories can be easily located by medical staff
  • Patients will receive appropriate treatment promptly
  • HIM and accounting staff members are enabled to work more efficiently, therefore reducing overhead costs and financial losses associated with incorrect treatment or working insurance denials
  • Mitigate threat of lawsuits due to inadequate or inaccurate treatment
