GRM Information Management has recently been selected to provide Legacy Data Archive (LDA) and medical Release of Information (ROI) services, over the course of a 10 year contract, for a New York state university-affiliated children learning center that will be closing permanently, in the near term.
According to GRM CEO, Avner Schneur, “GRM’s LDA and ROI services collectively provide this medical center with a solution that allows them to proceed with the closing of a medical facility while putting the necessary measures in place to stay in compliance with government mandates related to the retention and distribution of patient medical records.” Schneur goes on to say, “Being able to provide both of these services, as a comprehensive solution, is a good example of GRM’s unique breadth of resources and experience in the healthcare industry.”
GRM’s Legacy Data Archive solution has been adopted by many of the largest healthcare organizations in the country; employing GRM’s cloud-based content platform, VisualVault, to securely archive patient records from legacy EMRs. In addition to the cost savings enjoyed by virtue of retiring the legacy EMR after data is archived, the organization is also able to maintain the records in accordance with retention requirements and continue to make them available should they need to be accessed.
Given GRM’s deep experience, expertise, and resources related to the medical industry, the company was also able to ensure that the medical center is equipped with a solution to provide existing patients with medical records that they may be seeking after the facility is closed. GRM makes it simple for patients and healthcare providers to request information online with its Release of Information practice. GRM’s ROI service is a HIPAA- and HITECH-compliant solution, guaranteeing the efficient and secure release of medical information. The GRM platform is ideally-suited to process high volumes of transactions that often require the automated extraction and organization of sensitive data before releasing data to the requesting party.
Beyond LDA and ROI services, GRM also provides hospitals, physician practices and clinics with digital solutions for Finance/Accounting, Human Resources and Operations with a range of data management and workflow automation solutions.
