How Professional X-Ray Recycling Can Help You & Your Patients

There are many regulations when it comes to the proper disposal of medical waste and your office’s x-rays are no exception. Proper x-ray disposal directly effects not only your medical office but every one of your patients. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act leaves the responsibility for the x-ray film disposal process with the physicians and facilities, and also gives physicians the choice of doing an on-site or off-site destruction. However, the HIPAA rule does state that the disposal of x-ray films and other medical records must be done in a way that preserves the confidentiality of the information. That’s where professional x-ray recycling comes in to help. As experts in x-ray recycling for New Jersey and the entire tri-state area, we’d like to tell you more about it and what makes it so essential for any medical facility to employ.RDM Inc X-Ray Recycling

Whether you have a large or small amount of x-rays, they need to be recycled rather than thrown in the trash. And, each one of your x-ray contains private medical information of a patient, so it is essential to have them disposed of properly. Although you do need to keep your x-rays for a number of years for patient’s medical records, eventually there comes a time to dispose of them. You can’t just stockpile your x-rays forever; they eventually need to be disposed of in an environmentally conscious, compliant way.

The main component of an x-ray film is PET plastic, and it is coated with silver, a rare earth mineral and the precious metal we are all familiar with. So, throwing away an x-ray means you are putting PET plastic and silver in the trash, which ultimately goes to a landfill. X-ray recycling is the right thing to do for proper disposal.

At RDM we are HIPAA compliant and can recycle all kinds of x-ray film such as medical, veterinary films, expired or scrap x-ray film, all kinds of developed, discarded films, outdated, old, exposed or even new, un-exposed x-ray film.

X-ray recycling is simply the right thing to do for not only for the environment, but for your patients as well. Are you ready to learn more about x-ray recycling for your New Jersey office?

What You Should Know Before Going Paperless

Paper documents and walls of filing cabinets have been the way to keep and organize files in the office for decades, even centuries. Technology has come a long way since then and exploding in the last few years. Paper is no longer the smartest option and the world is going paperless! Many offices and homes worldwide are transitioning from physical documents to electronic document management systems. As experts in records management for Reading PA and surrounding areas, we’d like to give you some essential information to help you on your way.RDM Inc Document Scanning Services

One of the top three reasons a business has not yet gone paperless is a lack of management initiatives. Essentially, employees are ready and willing to go paperless, but nobody is leading the way or providing the tools. That’s where we come in. More and more business people are starting to realize that paper is an expensive and inefficient way to manage their information, and so they enlist the help of professional records management. At RDM we understand that going paperless isn’t something that happens overnight; it is a process that takes effort.

Many business owners and at home workers are intimidated by the idea of going paperless. But it really can actually be a time saver. With records management, gone are the days of endlessly sifting through old records and documents in search of that one record you need! Document scanning makes it easier than ever to access the files and documents you need when you need them. And less time spent searching for what you need means more time to spend on doing the work that really matters: keeping your customers happy and your business operations running smoothly and efficiently.

It is important to find the right digital document management system to aid you going paperless. At RDM we work with you to custom tailor a solution that will work best for your unique business. And, we have found that once implemented, it takes a relatively short time for employees to become accustomed to the new system.

Once you have your current documents switched to electronic copies, you can’t stop there. Tell your clients about the switch you’ve made. This can allow you to easily share documents and information. Make sure to send out an email addressing any concerns regarding security, and tell them about all of the benefits they’ll experience from the switch.

The Advantages of Microfilm Conversion for Your Business

Do you still use microfilm or does your office have old microfilm laying around or in large, bulky filing cabinets? Bring efficiency and a lightness to your office with microfilm conversion. At Resource Data Management we specialize in microfilm conversion for Harrisburg and the surrounding areas and we would like to tell you more about its many advantages.

RDM Inc Microfilm and Microfiche Scanning

With the advances in technology, such as TIF or PDF images, microfiche and microfilm have become obsolete. Therefore, it is essential to your business and for all companies and government organizations to invest in microfiche and microfilm conversion. In many instances, old rolls of microfilm are no longer easily accessible and cannot be shared within the organization. In addition, as time passes, the equipment, known as a Microfilm or Microfiche Reader used to search for data on these rolls becomes damaged or unavailable. This makes accessing information on microfilm nearly impossible. Microfilm conversion allows your employees to not only access documents more easily, but in some cases; it allows them to access them for the first time.

In short, when you provide immediate access to information that was once stored on Microfilm or Microfiche, your organization will be better equipped to address the needs of your end-user. Information can be searched and retrieved in seconds, without needing any specialized equipment. Additionally, data is more readily availability to help with audit and compliance requirements, such as the Freedom of Information Act.
Microfilm records also take up a lot of space, whereas digital files do not need separate storage space. Consequently, you can discover more office space that was previously storage for microfilm.

And, it’s actually much easier than you might think! RDM helps clients to convert rolls of Microfilm and Microfiche jackets to images on CD, DVD, or online. We will index the Film or Fiche with keywords or index values, to help users to quickly locate and access the data for which they are looking. As the demand for immediate, shared access to information increases, RDM offers clients an easy method of changing this information to TIF or PDF images.

Ready to get started on the road towards a more efficient and organized running office? At Resource Data Management, it is our goal to help you have the most efficient and effective office possible.
