No I did not not. Here is the respective language from my Lease Agreement relating to the EMR.....
MEDICAL RECORDS: The SUBLESSOR has agreed and will allow SUBTENANT to maintain electronic medical records and electronic financial records at the premises during the term of the Agreement and any renewal therof, and to be stored on the computer server located on the premises through the PatientNow electronic medical records software, as owned by the SUBLESSOR. The patient records will be stored and protected electronically according to HIPAA guidelines. The SUBLESSOR will be required to keep, hold, and maintain the patient records during the Agreement and/or upon termination of the Agreement for a time period as outlined by the Texas Medical Board. Upon termination of the Agreement, the SUBTENANT may print paper copies of any and all associated electronic patient records on his behalf and associated financial records from the PatientNow medical records software on his behalf, and any remaining electric patient records and financial records will continue to remain stored and maintained electronically for a time period as outlined by the Texas Medical Board. Any unclaimed patient records and financial records after the expired time period has occurred as outlined by the Texas Medical Board may be permanently removed from the server.
