- If a patient is already established in the medical records system, you may fax the medical record to the Medical Records office.
- If the medical records come through by fax illegible/hard to read, then the process of sending a hard copy to the Medical Records office must still be used.
- If the patient isn’t already established in the medical records system, a hard copy must be sent to the Medical Records office to establish the record.
- Once received, the Medical Records office will send to the scanning office/HIMS and the document will be uploaded to EPIC within three to four days.
