Onsite Scanning Bureau Services

In several cases the results of the Scanning Strategy have indicated that scanning onsite is required to fulfil all or part of the Current and/ Day Forward Scanning functions. This is where our onsite scanning bureau services fit. 

Experience shows us that utilising existing Health Record Library staff, especially for day forward scanning or for indexing documents without barcodes at document type level, will greatly reduce the risk of mis-indexing documents through the benefits of the staff’s existing knowledge of Health Record structure and Trusts own internal processes. Using existing staff also allows the Health Records Department to be very flexible in terms of staff allocation between the traditional Health Records tasks and the new digital tasks. The flexibility is very important to minimise the impact of change throughout the Trust.
