Document Management for Healthcare

In healthcare organisations, such as the NHS, it is essential that patient confidentiality is maintained at all times to maintain the trust between patients and staff. Therefore, having an effective document management policy is an essential part of a healthcare organisation’s privacy policy.

Being able to access information quickly and securely is an important part of any healthcare organisation. Therefore we provide a document scanning service that allows you to search your documents in digital form, which frees up time to spend with your patients. Document scanning also reduces the need for physical documents to be stored, enabling you to work towards a paperless office.

At Secure Storage Services, we provide document storage, shredding and scanning to all types of healthcare organisations, including the following:

  • NHS
  • Private medical care
  • Assisted living
  • Community care, such as drug treatment, mobility
  • …and more

Frequently Asked Questions 

What types of records should be scanned? 

There are many benefits to digitising all your paper documents but documents containing private and sensitive information should be first on the list. Documents such as patient health records, GP medical records, X-ray records and imaging and medical notes should all be digitised for easier access and to adhere to privacy laws. 


How many records can be scanned at once? 

We provide a service known as bulk scanning. This is when we scan all your documents at once at our document scanning facility. This is a more costly option but speeds up the retrieval process. Bulk scanning will free up a lot of space in the office and make it easier to access the documents. While there is no exact number, the number of records we can scan far surpasses what you could do on your own.
