Did you guys know that the federal government has set the year 2014 as the deadline for all hospitals and clinics to implement electronic health records (EHR)? Penalties willl begin by the year 2015 for those who haven't complied - in the form of reduced medicare reimbursement.

Because of this, companies have been over charging on X-ray scanning services.

As much as $10-12 dollars per SHEET of X-ray film.

If you have hundreds of thousands of records like many hospitals do, this could end up costing millions of dollars that could otherwise go to upgrading machines and research.

We have actually came up with a solution for this major problem.

Scanning companies don't want this to get out simply because they won't be able profit off of you being backed up against the wall by the new law.

We really want to help.

So what we've done is put a free program in place to digitize all your X-ray films at no cost whatsoever.

We are an X-ray film refinery, and we can offset the cost of scanning the films with the silver value of them.

Basically they pay for themselves to get digitized so you don't have to.

Stop paying for unnecessary storage fees as well.

You can have everything stored right in your PACS system for free.
