The American Association of Information and Image Management reports that more than 80% of medical business documents are forms of some sort and more than $360 billion is spent processing these forms every year. As a result, hospitals, health care institutions, insurance companies and other companies in the medical documents and surveying fields are taking steps to capture forms-based data electronically as a means to save time and money, while increasing the accuracy of medical records and overall operational performance.
At the same time, organizations such as Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO) and federal and state agencies are requiring greater detail in health care record-keeping. In fact, the current US administration has instructed healthcare organizations to get into compliance with National Health Information Network (NHIN) and convert to Electronic Health Records (EHR) standards.
As a result, many are turning to scanning-based data capture technology. Typical applications include patient surveys and evaluations, employee retention surveys, medical forms management and time keeping.
