How it Works

Mail

Once you sign up for the Office Practice Closure Service: We provide access to a Practice Closure Guide. We coordinate a mail-out to notify patients that your clinic is coming to a close.

Storage

For physicians with a combination of paper records and electronic records (EMR), your paper records are digitized and combined with your electronic records.
