The growth of health information technology (HIT) has led to an increase in the use of digital records. The adoption of HIT is increasing year on year and it is projected that by 2020, over 50% of all healthcare records will be digital.
This poses a challenge for organizations that are storing paper-based records or waiting for them to be scanned into electronic format before they can be used. This process can take up valuable time and resources which could otherwise be spent improving patient care or reducing costs.
By using AI to scan and digitize physical documents, such as medical records and imaging scans, healthcare providers can more easily access and share important patient information. This can help to reduce the time and effort required to track down and retrieve physical documents, and can also help to prevent, and enhance efficiency, security, accuracy, mobility, and collaboration, in turn, improve the entire process of resident care.
