Standard Register's Scan-Capture Capability Delivers Valuable Support for Patient Admissions, Risk Management and EMR Initiatives

DAYTON, Ohio, Feb. 12 -- Standard Register (NYSE:SR), a leading provider of document and print management services for healthcare, announced it has enhanced its SMARTworks® Clinical Enterprise with Scan-Capture capability. An optional application, this important functionality gives acute care facilities the ability to quickly capture images of identification cards, insurance cards and other related patient documentation from desktop scanners for electronic storage and distribution.

"Scan-Capture represents one more way we are helping healthcare providers pave the way to electronic medical records (EMR)," says Dave Dwyer, managing director of healthcare solutions. "It further streamlines the admissions process, eliminating the time and hassles of photocopying, transporting and storing paper documents, while improving the patient experience."

A browser-based application, Scan-Capture provides immediate access to the imaged documents to the admissions staff and other departments, such as patient accounting. User authentication, access controls and auditing help healthcare facilities conform to HIPAA and patient privacy initiatives.

Scan-Capture also delivers significant benefits to the hospital's business office. With easily accessible images of vital identification and insurance cards to verify patient identity, acute care facilities can minimize insurance fraud and the risk of quick reimbursements.

Together with other components of the SMARTworks Clinical Enterprise, Scan-Capture helps acute care facilities streamline their paper-intensive processes and improve the flow of information throughout clinical and business operations while helping hospitals to more effectively manage print costs.

Healthcare professionals can learn more by visiting the Standard Register booth # 363 at the 2007 HIMSS Healthcare IT Exhibition and Conference in New Orleans, February 25 - March 1.
