AccessTheFile.com Unveils Technologically-Advanced Medical Record Service
Unique platform fully automates records transfer process for the personal injury industry
Tampa, Florida – AccessTheFile.com today announced it will commence its electronic medical records initiative for the personal injury industry on November 10, 2008. The program, known as Transfer Pro, uses an Internet-based environment to automate the process of patient records conveyance between health care providers and personal injury attorneys.
Providers treating patients who have been injured as the result of another’s negligence are frequently requested to supply a patient’s attorney with treatment notes and reports. The attorney then utilizes the records in the litigation process. A claim for damages is affected by how the patient’s injuries are documented in the medical file.
In the historical course of action, the manner of medical record transmission and receipt between the two professions was labor intensive and costly. Transfer Pro’s innovative technology establishes a proficient new platform for their interaction.
“We’ve created an entirely new and original method that’s unparalleled in efficiency and effectiveness,” said Bruce Pitcher, founder and president of The Guide, Inc., the company that owns AccessTheFile.com. Pitcher points out, “Our proprietary technology takes what used to be a cumbersome, archaic procedure and makes it quick, easy and inexpensive. What formerly took a week or more for the parties to complete, now takes approximately two minutes.”
Transfer Pro enables a health care provider to convey patient records and billing data to a lawyer in under one minute. Another appeal lies in the system’s ability to convert handwritten patient notes into digital files and store them in a secure database in less than 10 seconds. Furthermore, the system eliminates 100 percent of mailing and duplication costs, and 90 percent of staff requirements associated with the transfer undertaking.
The attorney-related attraction of Transfer Pro is also largely based on the reduction of personnel time and direct costs associated with requesting and obtaining records from a provider. Additionally, an attorney can eliminate the turnaround time relating to actual records receipt. By utilizing the program, there is no waiting for a provider to copy files and mail them. The records can be obtained in less than 60 seconds.
Whereas some question that Transfer Pro may have HIPAA compliancy issues, Pitcher states, “Our service maintains patient information in a secure, HIPAA-compliant environment. We employ a state-of-the-art encryption process that is assured to maintain the utmost file confidentiality.”
