Pearson Introduces ‘Smart' Technology for Collecting Patient Registration Information

October 29, 2007 – Pearson today debuted the Docuscan System with digital pen technology, which allows hospitals to digitally capture patient registration information to save time and reduce the chance of data entry errors.

With the Docuscan Patient Registration solution with Paros technology, patients use a digital pen to fill out the registration form in the waiting room. Using the digital pen-and-paper technology, patients fill out forms as they normally would, and the technology automatically collects and transmits the data for use by the medical office staff.

The proprietary Paros technology integrates Anoto digital pen-and-paper functionality and character recognition from Vision Objects’ MyScripts, along with Pearson’s proven data capture technology. The digital pen records what is being written on the unique paper that is designed and printed by Pearson. Once the pen is docked, the data is transferred into the electronic medical records systems and practice management.
