Healthcare organizations still rely on paper medical documents. Here’s why.
Healthcare in-house counsel are responsible for doing due diligence when it comes to working with technology partners and integrating new tech, and they tend to be rather cautious.
So it’s not surprising that a recent survey of MedCity’s readers revealed that more than a few respondents were reluctant to bid farewell to paper-based medical documents for legal reasons.
