Scanner could increase reception staff efficiency

May 10, 2013

The Plustek D430 scanner from Plustek Technology Inc. is designed to help practices transition patient registration documents to electronic health record systems.

The Plustek D430 scanner from Plustek Technology Inc. is designed to help practices transition patient registration documents to electronic health record (EHR) systems. The automatic document feeder scans both sides of a document or ID in 2.5 seconds, allowing it to be saved as a searchable PDF or image file.

Practices can digitize insurance cards, drivers’ licenses, credit cards, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act forms, payment checks, medical prescriptions, and claim documents. The scanner’s horizontal feeding and compact design-2.5 inches tall and about 15 inches when loaded with paper-are designed to be suitable for a typical reception station. 

The scanner’s ability to digitize documents at a high speed might increase office efficiency by reducing registration time, automating data entry, improving data accuracy, speeding up claim processing, and meeting meaningful use requirements. Software protocol TWAIN and Windows image acquisition drivers ensure integration with most registration and EHR software.
