As part of their daily operations, many law firms and insurance companies often have the need to search medical records. This is generally regarded as extremely tedious and time-consuming. However, that process can be outsourced to experienced firms dealing with record retrieval services, while law firms and insurance agencies can focus on more important tasks.
Why Use Record Retrieval Services?
One of the advantages of using record retrieval companies is that they will deliver the medical records to the client in electronic form. American Retrieval provides this whether the records were received in a paper copy, via email, or digitally. In fact, not only will the client receive them electronically, but they will already go through optical character recognition (OCR). This is really a game changer if you’re going to search medical records.
What Is OCR and Why Is It Crucial When You Search Medical Records?
Normally, if you were to scan a paper document, you would have it in an electronic form, albeit as an image. While better than a paper copy, you would still have to look up the document manually if you wanted to find whatever it is you’re looking for. Unlike with hand-typed documents, the options to find or search through the document automatically won’t be available. OCR completely changes that.
OCR allows law firms and insurance agencies to convert a scanned document from a regular image to a searchable document. This means that you can insert any keyword you want and easily find every instance where that particular keyword is mentioned. You can imagine how handy that will come in if you’re dealing with documents that are hundreds, or even thousands of pages long.
How Does American Retrieval Help You Search Medical Records?
By providing all retrieved medical records electronically and OCRed, American Retrieval allows you to input a certain keyword and easily highlight all the pages where that keyword is found. There’s even an added tool that will enable you to take multiple sets of records, as well as provide a list of words instead of a single keyword.
That way, you can search for the keywords you’re looking for in many sets of records at once. Our system will highlight all the instances of the keyword and will bookmark all the pages where the keyword is found. And the best part is that all of this is done in mere seconds.
American Retrieval takes a task that is normally extremely time-consuming and equivalent to looking for a needle in a haystack, and turns it into something everyone can do momentarily. Looking through a document of 300 pages will take approximately 10 seconds.
