How Document Management Can Help Your Bethesda, MD Organization
Get Rid of Stacks of Paper
When you move to digital systems, you won't have cabinets or boxes taking up any space. Office space is expensive, you don't want to take up valuable space when you don't need to. Paper storage can also spread a fire in the event that one happens.
In addition to reducing a potential fire hazard, document management mitigates liability for somebody else's sensitive information being accessed by someone you don't want it to be accessed by.
Additionally, different industries have need to obey different regulatory standards. Paper storage can make compliance harder; a 2019 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory study found that as many as 56% of hospitals and doctor's offices may not be HIPPA compliant. A database management system will ensure compliance by creating automated checklists. We have experience implementing compliance for Bethesda, MD enterprises with:
