We can index your files based on date of birth, patient ID number, first and last name, and any other information that you need to help you access your files when you need them.

We will handle the integration points and ensure that your imaged data will be delivered to your EMR or EHR system efficiently. We eliminate the headaches normally associated with importing information by partnering with many leading vendors to feed their systems at the database level.
