Patient Data Storage Project

Patient Data Storage Project

The Patient Data Storage Project (PDSP) focuses on transitioning from paper and other non-electronic sources of patient data to secure electronic formats. This includes eliminating automatically generated patient chart requests, scanning specific information from paper charts, and discontinuing the creation of paper charts for new patients.
