Thanks to a booming economy, our local healthcare industry is growing leaps and bounds. Earlier this year, Kennewick General Hospital underwent a rebranding as Trios Health to accommodate expansion to the rest of the Tri-Cities, and Kadlec Health System has pushed its boundaries with medical offices and urgent care clinics in Kennewick. Dozens of local medical offices are also experiencing growth, as they add providers and services. All this activity comes with a set of challenges for healthcare administrators: relocating medical equipment to new offices, storing medical supplies, handling and storing patient records, and ensuring a smooth transition while maintaining order.
At Larsen Transfer Company we offer a wide range of storage and relocation services to hospitals and medical offices, who use our records storage and equipment storage facility extensively to relocate medical equipment or furnish a new office. Medical service providers and healthcare administrators depend on us to keep this valuable medical equipment and supplies safe from harm. Moreover, our logistics and moving experts handle medical equipment with the utmost care when they are being placed in a new medical facility.
Healthcare administrators use offsite records storage facilities as a way to ease the management of volumes of confidential patient records. HIPAA compliance requires that medical offices store records off-site to minimize the risk of unauthorized access to patient information. Although digitization of records is becoming prevalent, industry regulations require healthcare administrators to keep a physical copy of certain records. Medical charts, lab test results, vital patient records, and x-rays are often managed in complex filing systems and retention schedules. We have the records management capabilities to ensure you meet compliance regulations and stay organized.
Also, hospitals regularly store medical equipment and supplies that are purchased in bulk in our offsite storage facility to avoid using valuable office space. Items that are frequently purchased in bulk include paper towels, toilet papers and tissues, medical gloves, tongue depressors, and other non-perishable medical equipment. Larsen Transfer works with hospitals, clinics, and medical service providers to create a plan that guarantees that medical supply inventory is continuously replenished.
