Data Strategies, Inc. (DSI) a pioneer in practice management software since 1981 and Innovative Card Scanning (ICS) have signed a Distribution Agreement wherein DSI will integrate ICS card scanners into its MDsuite product. Innovative Card Scanning, Inc was started in January of 2002 by Dr. Daniel Moulton, F.A.A.P., with the idea of delivering a simple, user-friendly imaging and OCR solution for the medical industry. That simple idea has evolved dramatically and today, Innovative Card Scanning has grown from being a provider of imaging and OCR solutions for localized medical offices to partnering with major medical solution vendors to develop integrated solutions. ICS headquarters are located in Allen, Texas. ICS designs, develops and markets electronic document imaging and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) solutions for clients who are in the medical industry; ranging from a single doctor’s office to an entire enterprise-wide hospital system. “ICS card scanners greatly enhance our product by providing our clients with a fast and accurate way for scanning and reading insurance cards and drivers licenses. Coupled with the document management features already in MDsuite, this enables the front desk to be more efficient and the billing department to obtain more reliable data”, says Les Jacobs, President of Data Strategies Inc.
