Based in Charleston, South Carolina, RecordQuest (www.recordquest.com) was established in 2006 as the product and vision of a group of health information management and technology professionals that set out to simplify the tedious Release of Information (ROI) process for the healthcare industry. Medical facilities typically outsource this function to copy companies or try to manage with in-house staff. If outsourcing, the copy companies usually keep the majority, if not all, revenue generated even though medical facility staff are still quite involved with the process. Trying to manage with in-house staff is typically a losing effort as the expenses incurred outweigh the revenue that can be generated, which is why most groups outsource in the first place. RecordQuest has a better way! RecordQuest’s Electronic Patient Information Exchange (ePIX) solution allows healthcare facilities to manage the ROI function more effectively so there is no need to outsource or struggle trying to manage with in-house staff. ePIX is an innovative software solution that not only makes the release of information process more efficient but also reduces expenses, increases staff productivity, enhances compliance and generates more revenue!
