An InHealth Upfront Idea

The Stretch Test

As a general rule, time is more expensive than space!

ARMA (American Records Management Association) suggests this simple test: If you cannot easily insert and withdraw your open hand between charts at any point within the filing system without moving the records on either side of your hand, then the records are too densely housed for efficient, active retrieval and return.

Try that simple test.

If the results are less than favorable, call your InHealth Service Representative and S-T-R-E-T-C-H your filing capacity!
