Selling, closing or transitioning a medical practice – what happens to the medical records?
When the practice changes, as pertaining to record retention, a best practice (and some may be required to) would be to notify patients to ensure continuity of care. It’s not just as simple as sending a letter to each active patient. You must consider registered mail for minors, high-risk patients or guardianship patients. This video reviews best practices for handling medical records when dealing with a sale, closing or transitioning of a medical practice.
