Organizing Healthcare Using Project Management Perspectives

A defined but non-routine function of a health care provider information management department is purging records that are no longer needed. Using a project management perspective, please consider the project of purging older, unused medical records from a healthcare facility or physician office. Materials need to be identified, marked, and properly disposed of, such as by shredding.
Purging must be done periodically but in a very systematic manner. Some essential elements of purging medical records include adhering to state and national standards. HIPAA does not include medical record retention requirements, rather, deferring to state standards on how long records are required to be kept. In Kentucky, for example, records must be kept for 10 years from the last date of service for patients over the age of 18.
You will need to conduct background research on the web or within our library in order to identify tasks and responsibilities related to this project. Make sure to use appropriate citations when the work of others is quoted or consulted.
