EDCO Group has been awarded a patent for its medical record scanning and indexing technology, called Solarity. This technology enables the classification and separation of documents based on content. These automated steps in the scanning and indexing process minimize human intervention, which results in reduced cost and expedited processes.

PRWeb brought this news to our attention in their article, “EDCO Awarded Patent for Medical Record Scanning Technology and Process.”

Automation in medical records for all stages (e.g., creation, coding, filing, indexing) is happening all across healthcare facilities. The impending ICD-10 transition and electronic health record initiative are driving some of this, and some is just progress.

Proper medical coding is important for the filing and reimbursement of claims. Products like ICD Tagger work across platforms to provide consistent, uniform, and auditable reporting plus error flagging and trend analysis.
