Pearson, a provider of educational publishing, assessment, information and services, has debuted the Docuscan Patient Registration system, a solution for digitally capturing patient registration information, saving time and reducing the chance of data entry errors.
Docuscan Patient Registration solution with Paros technology can facilitate patients to use a digital pen to fill out the registration form in the waiting room. Using the progressive digital pen-and-paper technology, patients fill out forms as they normally would, and the technology automatically will collect and transmits the data for use by the medical office staff.
The Paros technology will integrate Anoto digital pen-and-paper functionality and character recognition from Vision Objects’ MyScripts, along with Pearson’s proven data capture technology. The digital pen can record what is being written on the unique paper that is designed and printed by Pearson. Once the pen is docked, the data are transferred into the electronic medical records systems and practice management systems with one simple click.
John Harnett, president and CEO of the data management group at Pearson, said: In today’s medical environment, it is more critical than ever before for hospitals, clinics and doctors’ offices to maintain up-to-date patient registration information and medical histories. Practices using the Docuscan system are able to efficiently and accurately collect current patient information and seamlessly integrate it with their electronic medical records systems and practice management systems.
