NEW YORK, July 9, 2012 – A2iA (@A2iA), the worldwide leading developer for cursive handwriting and machine-printed text recognition, and intelligent document classification software, announced today that A2iA DocumentReader™ has been selected by a service bureau (BPO) operating in the healthcare space and will displace another technology.
According to the deal, the customer plans to integrate A2iA DocumentReader to automatically classify more than 1.2 million incoming medical documents each day. With more than 15 different document categories, the mixed workflow contains both machine printed data and physicians’ / nurses’ cursive handwriting from patient charts, clinical documentation, laboratory results and administrative / insurance documents generated by various units from within the providers’ facility.
A2iA DocumentReader is an award-winning data extraction and document classification toolkit that leaves room for customization and helps make even cursive handwriting searchable and reportable. Without the use of any third-party technology, it is fully integratable into a wide array of healthcare applications, including those for Computer Assisted Coding (CAC), Electronic Medical Records (EMR), Explanation of Benefits (EOB) and Claims. By addressing the hybrid workflow, A2iA DocumentReader delivers access to more usable data – including unstructured information and cursive handwriting that other seemingly similar engines cannot process.
