  • In addition to the selection of a suitable practice information system, the conversion usually requires a clean and efficient solution for the digitisation of the still existing physical medical records.
  • In most cases, it does not make sense to digitise all physical medical records "in stock".
  • Dr. med. Kuno Bigger has already switched to the electronic management of KG and has opted for the "scanning on demand" variant from archivsuisse.
