Technology integration for healthcare applications

Add value to your healthcare software with integrated OCR and data capture functionality.

By incorporating ABBYY's sophisticated text recognition and data capture technologies into their products, software providers and developers of software for healthcare can add significant value to their applications. Text and data in printed documents – medical reports, prescription forms, patient records, and letters – can be automatically extracted and imported into other applications. In addition, internal administrative and business processes can be optimised further, for example by automated processing of invoices or delivery notes.

Add new functionalities to your application:
common scenarios.


Patient data management software

By applying OCR, printed documents can be digitally stored as searchable PDF files. Medical reports, laboratory test results and other relevant correspondence can then be linked to the patient’s electronic health record (EHRs) and easily accessed at any time via search keywords.


Solutions for health insurance providers

Information relevant to health insurance providers can be extracted from medical documents, health insurance plans or invoices for treatment and imported into other programmes for further tasks. Invoices and client correspondence can be digitally stored as searchable PDF documents and later found quickly using search keywords.


Hospital Information Management Systems (HIMS)

With the help of high quality text recognition, all doctor’s letters from patients and agreements with health insurers can be digitised and electronically archived as PDF files. Data from specific fields on medical documents and doctor’s letters can be extracted and forwarded to HIMS and other systems for integration into patient’s medical records. Patient surveys and reports can be easily and quickly processed for immediate use.


Software for pharmacies

By scanning medical prescriptions, printed information can be extracted by OCR and imported into software and applications for pharmacies where it can be validated against existing databases or stock systems and even be used to direct picking robots. This way, prescriptions cannot only be validated automatically to support ensure future reimbursement by health insurance providers. With information captured on prescriptions and stored in customer databases, pharmacy staff can access customer histories instantly for improved service and consultancy.
