Becoming a paperless hospital ...

On the way to becoming a digital hospital, scanning medical records is an important step—starting with the development of a treatment plan to the patient’s admission and discharge through to billing. Ideally, the amount of paper is reduced from the very beginning, which means that scanning should take place as early as possible in the process.
