Data Strategies, Inc., (DSI) a leading provider of integrated healthcare software announces a strategic partnership with Card Scanning Solutions (CSSN Inc.). Data Strategies’ MDsuite integration with CSSN’s Medicscan® software streamlines the patient registration process. Scanning driver licenses and insurance cards is proven to drastically reduce data entry errors, saving time and money.

CSSN’s Medicscan® software uses optical character recognition (OCR) True Parse to instantaneously detect, import, and populate fields in MDsuite, e.g., policy numbers, driver’s license numbers, and addresses. The scanning process takes only seconds and eliminates time spent on data entry and photocopying medical insurance and ID cards.

Two CSSN hardware technologies are now integrated into DSI’s well-established MDsuite - Snapshell® IDR camera reader and Scanshell® 800DX duplex insurance card scanner. Snapshell® IDR takes a photograph of card sized mediums in seconds while Scanshell® 800DX offers duplex scanning, both sides of the document is scanned at once. In either case, scanned data is automatically displayed and available for insertion into MDsuite.

“Our streamlined integration of Medicscan® can save practices time and money by providing fast, accurate, and clear images automatically imported into MDsuite”, said Data Strategies’ CEO Les Jacobs. Patient registration is easily done allowing front desk personnel to spend less time on data entry and having more time for valuable patient care.
