1 TITLE: Document Management Policy 1 APPLICABILITY: Workforce POLICY: R1029 I. PURPOSE The corporate documents of Wright State Physicians, Inc. (the "Corporation") are important assets of the Corporation. The purpose of this Document Management Policy and attached schedules ("Policy") is to ensure that the Corporation's documents are properly managed and maintained and that documents no longer of any value are timely and properly discarded. This Policy is intended to assist officers, directors, physicians, employees and volunteers of the Corporation in understanding their responsibilities for the management and maintenance of the Corporation's documents. This Policy includes schedules for the retention and destruction of specific categories of documents to ensure legal compliance, organizational efficiency, consistency and also to accomplish other objectives, such as cost management. Compliance with federal, state and local retention requirements will override all other objectives. II. APPLICATION Documents Generally. A "Document" is any record generated in the course of the Corporation's operation, whether in written, digitally recorded, electronically stored or other form, whether tangible or intangible. Examples of Documents include, but are not limited to: memoranda, electronic mail or " ," facsimiles, contracts, forms, binders, recorded voice mail messages, calendars, photographs,.pdf files, receipts and computer files. Electronic Documents. Electronic Documents, or any Documents stored electronically, shall be treated under this Policy as if they were paper Documents. The retention period of an Electronic Document depends on the subject matter of the particular Document and shall be retained as listed on the appropriate retention schedule. In other words, the content of a Document determines how it is managed and retained, not the format of the Document. III. RESPONSIBILITY The Corporation expects all officers, directors, physicians, employees and volunteers to comply fully, consistently and diligently with this Policy. No officer, director, physician, employee, or volunteer of the Corporation shall deviate from Document Management Policy s, retention, and destruction set forth herein unless expressly instructed by the Corporation's Compliance Director or otherwise expressly provided herein (e.g., litigation relevant Documents). IV. COMPLIANCE AND POLICY ADMINISTRATION The Corporation's Chief Operating Officer shall be the Policy administrator and as such is the officer in charge of the administration of this Policy and the implementation of processes and procedures to ensure that the Policy is followed. The Compliance Director in consultation with the Chief Operation Officer, is authorized to: educate officers, directors, physicians,

2 2 employees and volunteers on the Policy; make modifications or additions to the Document retention schedules included in the Policy from time to time to ensure that the schedules are in compliance with local, state and federal laws; monitor or have monitored local, state and federal laws affecting Document retention; conduct scheduled periodic reviews of the Policy; and monitor compliance with the Policy. V. DOCUMENT CREATION Documents shall be created for the purposes and in the conduct of the business of the Corporation only. At no time should documents be created for personal purposes. Directors, officers, physicians, employees, and volunteers should refrain at all times from unprofessional, embarrassing, offensive or inflammatory communications, including those in electronic formats. VI. DOCUMENT RETENTION The law requires the Corporation to maintain Documents, depending on their content, usually for a specific minimum period of time. Failure to retain those Documents may subject directors, officers, physicians, employees, volunteers and the Corporation itself to penalties and fines, cause a loss of rights, obstruct justice, spoil potential evidence in a legal action, adversely impact the Corporation's position with regulatory authorities, place the Corporation in contempt of court, or seriously disadvantage the Corporation in the pursuit or enforcement of its legal rights. VII. DOCUMENT DESTRUCTION Generally. Designated Documents shall be destroyed annually during a period established by the Chief Operating Officer. All Documents that are not of a confidential or otherwise nonpublic nature may be destroyed by any feasible means. All confidential or otherwise nonpublic Documents shall be shredded or destroyed using appropriate alternative means to the extent necessary to ensure the continued privacy of the information contained therein and to ensure compliance with applicable law included within the limitations of HIPAA and the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Electronic records shall be destroyed by a method most appropriate to the storage media, ensuring the continued privacy of information contained therein when necessary. Exception for Litigation, Investigation, or Audit Relevant Documents. Any Corporate Documents that are relevant to litigation, potential litigation (i.e., a dispute that could result in future litigation), an investigation or audit by a regulatory or other authority or that are responsive to any legal request for the Documents, including but not limited to a subpoena, in each case, as determined by the Compliance Director, shall be preserved according to the Compliance Director's instructions until the Compliance Director advises that the Documents are no longer needed. Officers, directors, physicians, employees or volunteers must report any event they believe would require the preservation of Documents for litigation,

3 3 investigation, audit or legal purposes, as described herein, to the Chief Operating Officer, in consultation with the Compliance Director, immediately, who shall evaluate the circumstances and, if appropriate, take steps to inform promptly all necessary individuals to preserve such Documents and otherwise suspend any applicable destruction schedule. This exception supersedes any previously or subsequently established destruction schedule for the Documents. VIII. SCHEDULES Attached as Appendix A is a Document Retention Schedule. This schedule sets forth the minimum retention periods for major classes of Documents. If an Officer, director, physician, employee or volunteer is unsure under which category a Document falls, he or she should consult with the Chief Operating Officer in consultation with the Compliance Director.
