RemoteScan for Medical Practice™ Released
April 10th, 2005 Missoula, Montana
RemoteScan corporation, the makers of network connectivity software for document scanners and digital cameras, today announced the release of RemoteScan for Medical Practice ™. Hospitals, medical clinics and doctor offices can now use any kind of document scanner -- including card scanners designed for scanning patient insurance cards -- from any remotely hosted software application running on Windows Terminal Services or from Citrix environments. With RemoteScan for Medical Practice, documents can be scanned directly into any Electronic Medical Records (EMR), Patient Record or Document Management software package.
"With HIPPA requiring confidentiality of patient information," says Steve Saroff, President of RemoteScan, "Medical practices establishing paperless office work flows had a challenge scanning from end user computers to centralized software servers. RemoteScan solved this problem. Our software makes it easy for scanned documents to securely become part of an individual personal record."
RemoteScan for Medical Practice ™ uses RDP and ICA protocols, and includes "Pass Through Scanning," which buffers and compresses images locally then automatically streams the data to application software as bandwidth becomes available. Additional features of the software include custom templates for configuring scanning options -- such as image resolution and area -- so that scanned documents can be consistent regardless of what new brands or models of scanners become installed at a health facility. RemoteScan also comes with a self-configuring installation system which means that in Terminal Services or Citrix environments, RemoteScan is simple to install.
RemoteScan software is currently used by hospitals and clinics with software packages from a4 Health Systems, Epic Software Systems, GE, McKesson, and numerous other medical software providers.
RemoteScan software works with all TWAIN or WIA scanners, and converts any scanner into a fully functional network scanner. RemoteScan software is available directly from the company web site at http://www.remote-scan.com as well as from numerous VARs. The retail price is $189 per end user. Volume pricing is available.
