document scanning in EHR

Last Updated on 2018-10-17


A global market-leading company provides advanced technological solutions that include radiology and cardiovascular workflow software. This company has been offering radiology management software for more than a decade. For the latest version, the company sought to include advanced document workflow management and convenience features including:

  • Cross-browser document scanning
  • Simple UI
  • Support for numerous document types
  • Ability to preview documents

Typical Steps of the Document Workflow:

  1. Referring Physician requests exam via a web portal.
    Sometimes a fax is used instead and is often scanned in as part of the study request for insurance documentation.
  2. An exam is confirmed and other appointment information might be documented at this point.
  3. Upon patient arrival, registration staff notes arrival.
  4. Patients registration and other details confirmed.
    Scanning of documents, such as driver’s license, insurance cards, and consent documents, occurs now. It’s during this time Dynamsoft’s component is used whereby staff can scan one set of paperwork and break it down into different document types
  5. Exam occurs and staff mark when it starts and ends, for the radiologist.
    This is another point when the Dynamsoft’s component might be used, if a patient needs to sign a consent form to be scanned into the system as an audit trail.
  6. Radiologist views images and creates a report.
  7. Report is delivered via fax and/or electronically via the portal to relevant parties, such as physicians, patients, etc.


The company performed a build versus buy analysis. They found Dynamic Web TWAIN was the best decision for their organization based on:

  • the robustness of the solution
  • increased time to market
  • cross-browser compatibility

Dynamsoft’s Dynamic Web TWAIN SDK provided developers a simple way to deliver a TWAIN scanning module in a web application.
