Arizona Medical Records Law

Gain an understanding of the many different laws that correlate with medical record retention requirements for health care providers.

Many health care providers do not understand Federal and State Laws that pertain to medical record retention requirements for hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, rural health clinics, long-term care facilities, and providers who retire or sell their practice(s).They also do not understand what to do when presented with an action for malpractice. This topic helps the persons responsible for entries into the medical record and those responsible for retention of the medical record understand how to create a thorough and accurate record that is in compliance with Federal and State laws. The material also explains how to understand statute of limitations and navigate Litigation Hold guidelines and medical malpractice actions.
