    I am working on a retention policy for our RHC - can anyone direct me to a retention guideline referring to  physician schedules?  I know it is a requirement but I am not finding what the minimum retention period is and the reference to it.  Thank you to anyone that can help me find this.

    Joan,
    I work at a FQHC in Illinois & follow our Illinois Hospital Association Retention Guidelines.  They do not have an Authority posted for "Appointment Books", but we set ours at 5 years when we were on paper.  Thanks
