Concerning the options of Printing vs. Downloading old chart data for migration to a new chart filing system:

Is the intent to go forward with Paper or EMR/EHR charts?

If the intent is to go forward with Paper, printing the old charts would likely be the best option (unless you want to invest in a secure document management program for the old records.)

If the intent is to go forward with an EMR/EHR, downloading may afford a quicker, and cheaper, migration. (In this case the Print option would require scanning and uploading, or a hybrid electronic/paper chart archive storage space and management. This would likely increase costs of storage space and FTEs)
