Patient record scanning

Patient Record Scanning

The NHS has reiterated it’s commitment to digitise all patient records by 2015.  So what should they look for when choosing a supplier to digitise these confidential records?

Scanning bureaus like Cleardata offer secure document scanning services, accredited to ISO27001 for Information Security and ISO9001/2008 Quality Management Systems.   All documents are handled in a secure environment protected by biometric finger print entry, Redcare security, early smoke detection alert systems and water protected document storage.  Documents are fully managed onsite and can also be confidentially destroyed onsite (if required) after scanning.

The NHS should  consider who’s got access to the patient records.  Employees should be checked by Disclosure Scotland.  Bureaus should also offer zoned areas in  premises,  only allowing authorised staff to access key records.

Scanning quality and document output type is also a key area.  What scanners will be used to digitise records?  High quality resolution scanners like Kodak’s i5800 provide the best quality scanned images and also ensure no double feeds are captured.

Cleardata offers 200% quality checking for scanned images, to offer the highest quality service.   Data can be output in any required format to ensure compatibility with any back office system.
