Forward Advantage Brings OCR Capability to MEDITECH’s Scanning and Archiving Application
Forward Advantage is pleased to announce the release of Find-It, an optical character recognition (OCR) tool designed in collaboration with MEDITECH that integrates with MEDITECH’s Scanning and Archiving (SCA) application.
In continuation of its MEDITECH migration services, Forward Advantage will provide full migration support for business office images stored in Valco or other third-party systems. Once migrated, all existing and newly scanned business office documents reside in MEDITECH’s Long-Term Storage which is continuously monitored by Find-It for new images. When a new image is found, Find-It applies OCR technology and stores the text in a SQL database for future querying.

Florida’s Sarasota Memorial Hospital has been a Forward Advantage customer since 1999 when it implemented Communication Director to replace its manual system for reports delivery.

The solution also needed to accommodate a large number of physicians (nearly 900 on staff and many others located across the U.S. and Canada).
