Ambir Technology, Inc., http://www.ambir.com, a manufacturer of scanners, electronic signature pads and digital imaging software, announces it is now the official authorized marketing, sales and support channel partner for all MedicScan software, insurance card scanner, driver's license scanner and ID card scanner solutions. Now servicing all sales inquires, purchasing needs, technical support, customer service and warranty requests, Ambir has dedicated a new web property, http://www.medicscan-online.com, to supporting this popular product line.

MedicScan is designed specifically to meet the needs of patient care facilities by capturing data digitally from insurance cards and driver's licenses, streamlining the patient registration process by eliminating the need to photocopy patient ID cards. The result is greater efficiency, reduced human error, and reduced costs.

"The MedicScan product line and its core imaging and OCR engine technology for ID cards provides extraordinary value for healthcare organizations," said Al Ingallinera, Ambir Technology vice president of sales and marketing. "MedicScan is a natural addition to the Ambir product portfolio as a useful imaging solution to streamline insurance card scanning at patient registration in healthcare facilities of all sizes."

The MedicScan line includes four levels of MedicScan scanning software, plus the MedicScan viewer. All MedicScan solutions capture the image from both sides of cards (by scanning the card twice when using a cost-effective simplex scanner) and provides the option to combine the two sides into a single image for improved storage, viewing and printing. The captured image can be attached to the patient's electronic record, saved to a file, or exported to any other application; it can be easily emailed or sent to an FTP or web address.

Each of the MedicScan solutions is customizable to satisfy the unique needs of healthcare organizations, from small practices, group practices and multi-site medical groups to hospitals and pharmacies. Options include automatic image file saving to a designated location; automatic image file naming; automatic ID card detection scanning; and automatic routing of a scanned image to a designated printer. The MedicScan software can also be set to run in a windowless work mode, removing the need to open additional windows. MedicScan software may be used with leading practice management and EMR systems by exporting and attaching image files to patient records.

MedicScan scanning software includes the choice of compact USB-powered A6 (card size) or A4 (cards and documents up to 8.5" x 14") scanners for quick digital capture with zero warm-up wait time and no need for an external power supply.
