Clearwave Corporation Utilizes Medicscan OCR Technology to Speed Check-In, Diminish Data Entry Errors and Improve Revenue

Share Article

Clearwave Corporation and Card Scanning Solutions (CSSN) have partnered to provide optical character reading (OCR) technology on all of Clearwave’s healthcare kiosks. This technology will allow patients to scan a driver license or insurance card, which is then automatically populated into a healthcare organization’s practice management system or hospital information system.

Through the use of the Medicscan® OCR technology provided by CSSN, patients no longer need to manually enter demographic information and healthcare organizations receive clean data, which helps to improve revenue, lower claims denials and bad debt.

When a patient scans a driver license or insurance card through a Clearwave kiosk, Medicscan® OCR parses the data and allows Clearwave to then access the information to identify the patient and, regardless of insurance carrier, conduct real-time eligibility verification. Clearwave then populates the insurance verification information into the organization’s back-end system for billing and claims submittal purposes.

“A major factor in claim denials and lost revenue involves data entry errors and incorrect patient information. If we can improve the quality of the patient data that an organization uses for billing and claims submittal, we can significantly impact an organization’s bottom line,” said Gerard White, CEO for Clearwave. “Card Scanning Solutions is only one of two companies in the country that has this advanced optical character recognition technology so we knew right away that they were the perfect fit to enhance our solution.”

“Our solution, MedicScan®, scans medical cards and driver’s licenses from all 50 states as well as from various other countries and converts text and images into a database or file so the healthcare industry is a benefactor of our solution because at present, manual processes are still being used,” said Michael Jordan, Manager of Sales and Business Development for CSSN. “We are happy to count Clearwave as an advocate for our technology because their vision for improving the efficiency and productivity of the healthcare industry is one that we believe is worthwhile and beneficial.”
