Lawrence-based OrthoKansas was suffocating under stacks and stacks of medical records. After 39 years of providing comprehensive orthopedic care to countless clients—including the collegiate athletes at the University of Kansas and Baker University—OrthoKansas’ paper-friendly team was forced to begin storing sensitive medical records in an off-site location. After a series of negative experiences with technology left OrthoKansas reluctant to try paperless storage solutions, the benefits of paper seemed to outweigh the drawbacks of storage and security risk. That is, until the new healthcare law required a transition to electronic medical records for all Medicare providers, like OrthoKansas, by 2014.
"I definitely rest much easier knowing that NetStandard is working behind the scenes to watch our system. I appreciate [their Technology Managers] very much, and I enjoy working with them."Trish Hilliard-Emmons, OrthoKansas Administrator
