Chart transport

Posted by: | Comments (4)

We have a satellite clinic that we travel to once a month. We do not have EMR currently, so charts are transported home with an employee on Thursday evening (we are closed on Friday) so they can be brought with the employee to the satellite clinic Monday morning.

While this is not ideal, there is no other way that I know of to get the charts to the satellite clinic. If the employee’s car gets broken into and information stolen, who is liable? Does anyone have a suggestion on how to better transport the charts that I have not thought of?

Thanks.
