In 2011, members of the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), and its standard-setting body, the American College of Medical Practice Executives (ACMPE) voted to merge to form a new association. Today, MGMA-ACMPE is the premier membership association for professional administrators and leaders of medical group practices. Their mission is to elevate the performance of medical practice leaders and their organizations by connecting members, building partnerships, setting the standards for certification, and providing access to advanced healthcare solutions. The MGMA 2012 Annual Conference aims at providing educational programs for healthcare professionals that are involved in managing medical group practices and healthcare systems of all sizes. The conference provides access to a wide range of the latest technology and solutions which assist healthcare professionals in meeting the challenges of today’s medical practices.

As the manufacturer and the intellectual property and trademark owner of the MedicScan® and ScanShell® product lines, CSSN Inc. has contributed extensively to the process of patient registration and medical practice management. CSSN’s MedicScan® OCR software system and insurance card scanners allows information from driver’s licenses and medical insurance cards to be extracted thereby speeding up the process of transferring text and images from these cards into electronic forms. This vital information can then be attached to the patient's electronic chart, saved to a file, emailed, sent to an FTP address or exported to various applications. With CSSN’s comprehensive OCR SDK (Software Developer Kit), developers are able to easily incorporate this reading technology directly into their existing software application.

The ScanShell® and SnapShell® hardware series from CSSN serves as a multipurpose card scanning system for a wide range of cards including, business cards, checks, medical cards, ID cards, driver licenses and passports. These devices are also available in simplex or duplex capabilities and are equipped with a USB 2.0 standard interface, therefore eliminating the need for an external power supply. Once scanning begins, the MedicScan® OCR instantaneously takes over the process and exports and stores the data and the images into the relevant application.

CSSN has contributed extensively to the medical field globally and they have integrated their MedicScan® OCR software solution with a wide variety of companies. For example, eClinicalWorks® is a leader in ambulatory clinical solutions and with the integration of their EHR solution with MedicScan®, they are able to provide state-of-the-art technology and services which enhance the efficiency, accuracy and security in the healthcare industry. Brickell Research is another company which has integrated MedicScan® to their Microsoft Windows-based practice management software known as BrickMed™ which has given their users access to a far superior medical practice management solution. A key element of running an organization today is time management and accuracy and with MedicScan®, both these objectives are achieved. Other core benefits of using this OCR software are its ability to empower the front desk of any medical service. The staff is able to quickly and accurately extract data from a patient’s medical card or ID card. The time that an employee would spend on photocopying, scanning and formatting patient information is eliminated and human error is reduced. Since the medical data can be easily extracted, employee productivity is increased which translates to return on investment. Delivering the best patient care is possible with CSSN and the extracted data can then be customized based on individual requirements

Many companies have also integrated CSSN’s ScanShell® and SnapShell® scanners into their practice management solutions and their users are reaping the benefits. For example, ManagementPlus has integrated their existing software with CSSN’s ScanShell® 800DX Duplex scanner and the SnapShell® OCR ID Reader. The ScanShell® 800DX A6 duplex scanner is a high-speed OCR unit which offers users the ability to simultaneously capture both sides of a scanned document such as, ID cards, insurance cards, medical cards and driver licenses. The SnapShell® OCR ID Reader is able to read the OCR of driver’s licenses and ID cards of all 50 US states and over 45 countries around the world and it is a smart data collection choice for access control and visitor management needs, or within any arena that requires the collection and maintenance of ID data. For those users who are utilizing software which CSSN is not integrated with yet, CSSN offers a wide range of non-OCR image only scanners and solutions that will meet your requirements.

By integrating CSSN’s MedicScan® OCR software into a medical practice, users will gain a competitive edge in the extraction, processing and storage of medical information and patient registration. With the wide range of scanning hardware available in CSSN’s SnapShell® and ScanShell® series, CSSN has the right solution for you. The MGMA 2012 Annual Conference in Texas will give you the opportunity to see, learn and experience more about CSSN and how it can assist your practice.
