Transform Patient Check-In: Intelligent Card Reading with any Device.
Plano, Texas—February 10, 2015—Inuvio is pleased to announce that ScanCloud, the industry-leading patient check-in solution, now supports smartphones and tablets, in addition to scanners. With this update, partners can add Intelligent Card Reading to desktop applications, mobile check-in apps, patient portals and even back-office RCM systems. ScanCloud with camera support works with multiple image types and resolutions from various devices, extracting patient data and quickly delivering it to a PM/EHR application. With mobile device use growing significantly, user training can now be as easy as “point and shoot”.
ScanCloud is a web-service that accepts images of driver’s licenses, insurance cards and other documents, reads and extracts data from the images and returns the information to partner applications. Every PM/EHR application can use a simple web API to automatically read patient cards at check-in, reducing data entry errors, reducing denials and improving front desk workflow.
“Image processing and data extraction is an excellent fit for a cloud-based model,” said Kyle Ragan, Inuvio’s Director of Integrated Products. “It allows Inuvio engineers to constantly monitor the performance and reliability of the service, keep it up to date with new card types, and continually improve it with minimal to no impact to our partners. Additionally, offloading the computation to our servers removes the limitations of aging and/or virtualized IT infrastructure in the typical medical environment.”
ScanCloud was designed with data security as a central concern, employing industry-leading security that is fully HIPAA/HITECH compliant. “ScanCloud’s security model was designed to ensure that all data is fully encrypted both in-flight and at-rest,” said Bryan Taylor, Vice President of Development. “By utilizing industry-standard communication protocols, security remains our concern, enabling our partners to focus on their own applications.”
Inuvio is a proven leader in front desk image and data acquisition solutions such as ScanSharp and ScanOCR. With ScanCloud, Inuvio has designed an effective solution for the evolving needs of the medical industry. Inuvio continues to create cutting-edge services and software that reliably operate within the highly varied IT environments throughout the health care market.
