Healthcare Document Management Infographic

I’m always a fan of the various healthcare infographics that are put out and the same is true from the healthcare document management infographic that was published by Globodox. The infographic highlights one of the myths that exists in healthcare that once you go EHR that you’ll be done with paper. Unfortunately, you’ll still have a lot of paper to deal with in the process of going paperless. So, document management of some sort is a really important part of any EHR implementation.

I find the HIPAA violation section interesting, but I’m not sure I think going electronic actually helps solve a lot of the breach problems that they list. I don’t personally believe that electronic records makes more HIPAA breaches happen, but I do believe that the size of the breaches increases dramatically in an electronic world. 10,000 charts could be stored on a small thumb drive that can be easily lost. Try losing 10,000 paper charts. You get the idea.

Now, without further ado, the healthcare document management infographic:
