Hospitals: Patient registration scanners:
Ambir DS685 duplex ID and insurance card scanners are engineered for durability and take up minimal counter space rendering them a suitable digital image capture solution for hospital registration areas. While larger, bulkier scanners can provide similar digital imaging capabilities, they do so at an increased cost and footprint and often deliver capabilities beyond what is necessary for this application.

The Ambir DS685 duplex ID and insurance card scanner is ideal for:

  • Admitting areas
  • Outpatient services
  • Emergency departments
  • Mobile carts

Software development support:
Supporting developers and system integrators is an important priority for Ambir Technology. Often the ideal customer solution involves the integration of digital capture technology into custom software solutions. SDKs are available for software application providers to directly communicate to the Ambir DS685 duplex ID and insurance card scanner.

Pricing and Availability:
Available now, the Ambir DS685 duplex ID and insurance card scanner costs $329.95 (Model DS685-SS). It can be purchased directly from Ambir Technology, or from wholesale distributors and leading direct solution providers.
