What if we would like the scanning done at Our Location?
We offer our same scanning services at Your Location, except for the destruction. We are happy to come to you.
We bring our laptops, scanners, software and a scan team to your location.
If the project is large enough, we hire our scan team members from your local area. We manage the team and do all the background checks. All you need to do is provide us with the work space.
What measures to you take to maintain accuracy and security of our records?
We have a Unique Scanning Process to assure Accuracy. We actually look at each of your scanned images four to five times during the project.
During our care and custody, we maintain a Secure HIPAA environment for your records. We have a secure production facility located on the grounds of an airport, which includes a fence surrounding our facility. We use video surveillance, keyless entry protection, background checks, to mention just a few. Electronic data is encrypted within our scanning software and is delivered with 256 encryption on a password protected portable drive.
We also offer our scanning services at your location.
What are the different scanning project tasks?
Prep is a very important part of scanning that is overlooked. During the prep stage, every piece of paper is touched and looked at. During this process Staples are removed, corners "Dog Ears" are straightened, documents that require special attention are Flagged. The attention to detail that is spent during prep will greatly help the documents to easily flow through the scanner quickly and without paper jams.
We use high end industrial Fujitsu Scanners and Dokmee Capture scanning software to detect double feeds and image quality.
We use a variety of scanning methods from bar code separators to manually feeding a folder at a time. A test selection of documents are scanned at the beginning of each project for the client's review and approval prior to starting production.
We have a number of different methods for Indexing. We use OCR (optical character recognition), Zone OCR (specific area on the page), and Bar Codes when applicable. We also have some wonderful Data Entry specialists that are very accurate.
After the records have been scanned, they are reviewed by a different set of eyes for Quality Assurance. During the Quality Assurance process, Each Image is reviewed, by a human, for quality and indexing accuracy.
The scanned images are delivered on a secure, encrypted and password protected Thumb Drive.
We use a Xpress Shred, a certified destruction company for all of our shredding. We provide a certificate of destruction upon request after the shredding has been completed.
As part of our Quality Control, we use more Scanners and Scan Technicians rather than a few of the big "hopper" scanners that scan so fast it would be impossible to watch each document or detect double feeds. Our scan technicians are trained to physically watch each document as it moves through the scanner along with watching the images on their large screen monitors. After scanning, the technician counts the number of physical pages and compares with the number of images scanned, along with a review of the images.
The scanning process is broken down into 6 individual steps - Prep, Scan, Index, QA, Delivery & Destruction. Each process has its own set of quality control rules to ensure accuracy.
Document indexing is critical to the success of a document conversion or imaging/retrieval system. Our team of data entry specialists are dedicated to the accuracy and integrity of indexing scanned documents. We can also use a clients existing database to electronically populate indexing fields. Whether you require hand-key verification, barcode reading, zone-ocr or an electronic transfer of data, Data Engineering provides the expertise to ensure documents are indexed accurately for easy retrieval.
Indexing fields are used for search criteria in custom file naming or in a document management system.
With a paper filing system, it was common to have a filing cabinet with drawers of like type records. Within the drawers were folders, with a name on each folder tab (Ex. Patient Name, Student Name, Vendor, etc) and possibly a verification as in date of birth. Within the folder were documents which were filed in date order. If you were looking for a paper record, you would find the folder and then look through the pages in the folder. In this paper scenario, Index Field #1 would be the folder title or "Patient Name", and a second verification Index Field #2 would be "Date of Birth". The patient name and date of birth would be used to name the e-files.
We can add special document prep rules. For example, if there is a certain type of a document you would like separated from the scanning, we can do that during prep. Let us help you find mis-filed documents.
After the documents have been scanned, we can run an additional OCR step to capture the searchable content of the documents. With Adobe Acrobat and PDF format, you will be able to search across documents for a specific word or phrase.
Documents which are larger that legal size - 11 x 17. We can accommodate any size documents.
In addition to the software which we develop, we are also certified re-sellers of DokMee, by Office Gemini. DokMee is an excellent document management software to pair with our scanning services.
