Parascript, LLC, the image analysis and pattern recognition technology provider, today announced that Aurora Health Care, a not-for-profit health care provider and a national leader in efforts to improve the quality of health care, has implemented Parascript’s FormXtra Enterprise form processing software. The technology has enabled Aurora Health Care to automatically process 100,000 flu consent forms from October 1st through December 1st with recognition rates of over 80 percent. The health care provider saved $25,000 in the first year after the initial investment.
“We are very pleased with the results achieved with Parascript’s FormXtra Enterprise,” said JoAnn Smith, manager system billing for Aurora Health Care. “Not only were we able to automate the labor-intensive and error-prone process of recognizing and keying in information on flu consent forms, but we have also seen significant savings after only a few months.”
Aurora Health Care receives approximately 100,000 flu consent forms every season. The forms contain diverse field types such as voucher number, first and last names, address, date of birth, and several check boxes, among others. Parascript’s form processing software can read these handwritten fields more often than any other automated process in the industry even when they are located in non-standard positions.
Parascript’s FormXtra Enterprise provides all of the modules required to establish a complete forms processing workflow. Form definition, form registration, intelligent recognition, keying module, dynamic quality control, reporting and administration tools make managing forms processing and keying jobs easy.
“Parascript’s unique ability to read difficult text like handwriting gives our customers cost savings advantages over their competitors,” said Brian Ball, vice president for Parascript. “FormXtra Enterprise offers a complete forms processing workflow, and enables organizations to achieve immediate savings on tough-to-process forms.”
