SMART Patient Record Management Service
The organized approach to patient record management
The history of HIM operations in many hospitals and clinics includes a long record of sudden expansions and relocations; uneven staffing supplies; incomplete implementation of new policies, procedures, and equipment; and successive waves of recordkeeping technology. Lost time, lost savings, and often even lost information are the results of a lack of consistent, organized medical records methodology.
It may be time to get SMART.
The AMES® Streamline, Manage, Access, Retain, Toss (SMART) program provides your organization with an organized, effective and proven approach to patient record management. Its designed with all the decades-long experience that AMES brings to medical records solutions.
Using SMART, AMES experts take your employees through a carefully calculated process.
