CSSN’s MedicScan® solution has contributed extensively to the medical field and they have integrated this OCR software with a wide variety of companies. This insurance card scanner system for medical insurance cards automates and speeds up the process of transferring data and images into electronic format.

MedicScan® brings the paperless office revolution to one’s front desk, significantly increasing efficiency and productivity. With CSSN’s comprehensive OCR SDK (Software Developer Kit) and high level support, users can easily incorporate this reading technology directly into their existing software application.
