Archiving patient records in a legally compliant manner

User Short Story:
With high-quality document scanners to the digital patient file

„When we merged two hospitals with voluminous archives for paper-based and microfilmed patient records, we ran the risk of coming up against spatial capacity limits and slowing down central work processes. After intensive testing, we opted for SCAMAX® scanners for the digitalization of our patient records. Crucial factors for these scanners were their safe infeed for mixed documents, their optimum image quality, their simple handling and their excellent price-performance ratio. We now archive around 370,000 documents per month. After scanning, the software is responsible for furnishing the documents, in stacks, with an electronic signature, which provides us with wide-ranging legal security.“
