Digitizing Medical Records with ScanSnap iX500
Transforming stacks of medical records into valuable digital information is crucial for healthcare organizations.

Healthcare firms face a variety of challenges in terms of the changes and reforms in the sector. The clinics conduct several medical examinations necessary for treatment and create records for each and every patient. Storage and maintenance of these records which are risked with getting misplaced is a tedious task; digitization is thus evolving as a viable alternative for this sector.

The emergence and innovation of newest technologies, smart devices or web-enabled devices are changing the way organizations access and share information. Healthcare firms can instantaneously access critical information by pairing the new technologies with electronic medical records (EMR). This system helps in eliminating the paper-based medical records from getting piled up.

Here are the various benefits, an EMR provides

Healthcare Professionals
  • Save time with on-demand access to patient records.
  • Improve diagnoses with the ability to search patient records and collate with other data repositories, such as disease databases.
  • Facilitate collaboration among authorized caregivers.
  • Ensure up-to-date, accurate and relevant patient history and information.
  • Highlight the need for continued care and follow-up tests and procedures.
  • Get lab results more quickly and easily than register pharmacy records.
Administration
  • Enable the safety of patient records and eliminate the risk of lost records.
  • Verify data and reduce errors.
  • Improve staff productivity and reduce time retrieving files.
Patients
  • Offer better access to medical records and histories.
  • Provide peace of mind by ensuring patient privacy.
  • Speed insurance claims and approvals.

Users can scan wirelessly to a PC or Mac as well as iOS or Android mobile devices; thus offering greater accessibility and usefulness.

ScanSnap iX500 can digitize a large number of documents, very fast without any paper jams. It keeps critical information such as handwriting, handwriting pressure, and written marks in their original form. The scanner enables us to share medical records with other clinics and give an immediate answer to the patients during emergencies.

Key features of iX500

  • Connects to a computer via Wi-Fi or USB
  • Can scan directly to mobile devices
  • Fast and double-sided scanning
  • Improved quality of treatment with quick access to digitized medical records

Digitizing papers for medical treatments covered by insurance is also effective

Though medical records for treatments with insurance are done electronically, a lot of papers still get generated. For instance, flu diagnoses generate 600 to 700 papers in just one season. If private clinics can solve the paper storage problem, they can improve the quality of the treatment by utilizing more time and space.
