    Good afternoon,

    Are there regulations for uploading documents into the EHR as a packet? (i.e. uploading all intake documents as one file)

    Thank you,

    Brittany Hernandez

    Not to my knowledge.  Double check any state statutes governing the medical record.  It just needs to make sense to the organization, be defined and established as a legal document or not and approved by the appropriate committees.  We have a Presurgical Packet that is scanned at point of contact by surgery scheduling.  This includes the order, consent, prior auth if applicable, old records and HP.  It gets separated and doc ID'd on the back end by the HIM document imaging team.
