There will be a retention schedule put in place so that all employees are aware of the state and federal laws how long records need to be kept (French, 2018). This retention system will give the staff the time frame for when records need to be destroyed. The process for destruction of computer medical records is called purging and the retention schedule will be used by staff to know when to be purged.
