The system that scanning companies use is an integral part of the overall scanning process. Systems, such as the OptiScan® ChartWorx appliance, are able to integrate with existing practice databases providing a valuable tool for associating the scanned images with chart data.
Such systems can provide specialized intranet web applications to determine key project statistics, provide patient scan status reports, and can generate cover sheets for scanning patient charts. This reporting interface provides real-time statistical feedback to both the scanning company and practice management. Progress can be monitored daily, providing a valuable tool in determining estimated project duration as well as scanning and preparation personnel efficiency data.
The scanning service provider must provide the most suitable scanner and image processing software for a successful outcome. Be sure that the company that you choose has the systems in place to meet your needs and deliver the data the way you need it.
