Can paper records that have been imaged then be destroyed? MER Conference, Chicago

May 24, 2016 2:00PM - 3:00PM CDT

Add to iCal/Outlook

In this session, John Isaza will discuss why imaged records are just as admissible as original paper records based on:

  • The Federal Rules of Evidence and state equivalents,
  • Case law, and
  • A plethora of federal and state statutes and regulations.

There is no legal foundation or rationales for retaining the great majority of imaged original paper records. Despite this, many organizations keep retaining their imaged paper records and incurring in unnecessary storage costs associated with retaining them.

Main takeaways from this session will be:

  • The multiple legal foundations for the admissibility of imaged records,
  • An overview of the ways imaged records are regularly admitted into legal proceedings,
  • How you can determine the wasted cost to unnecessarily store imaged paper records, and
  • A clear understanding of your organization’s potential cost to conduct a legal review of both the imaged records AND the original paper records of those records.
