Hi, our scanned paper into our EHR is held for 90 days then destroyed. The retention on paper after scanning is up to you.
Unless your state law states otherwise, after you have scanned records into your EMR, you can decide how long before you destroy them – we destroy after 75 days......the legal record is the EMR.......
