When ADEC Preview was approached by Gosford Vascular Services, they had the daunting task of trying to digitise all their patient medical records.
With a lack of space and the requirement to be able to easily locate and add additional information to files, Gosford Vascular was wondering if the scanning and elimination of the paper-based medical records would be feasible.
ADEC Preview in a few collections, collected over 33,000 patient record files for scanning. The files were prepared, scanned and uploaded to a temporary eView+ site for viewing - all within a three week period.
The digitised information was then converted to searchable PDF files making all the text within the files searchable, the key benefits of this were to allow the surgeon to easily search, collate and data mine the information for his research.
As commented by the directors of Gosford Vascular Services -"The entire process from the initial contact with ADEC through to the final delivery of the scanned images was fantastic; we found ADEC to be very accommodating and helpful whenever we had questions".
Now that the past records are scanned and in place, the job of maintaining the information with new files is a simple one with new files scanned and stored annually to keep the patient files up to date.
Gosford Vascular Services will eventually process the remaining 20,000 records with ADEC.
