What are Record Retention Guidelines?
Every state has its own rules on top of the federal government rules. Each state has what is called a State Archivist. A State Archivist documents the state’s record retention guidelines for businesses and individuals. The physician or practice should work with either their state Archivist or someone that manages Quality and Risk/Compliance within their organization to help with this process.CMS Medical
