Helping to care for my grandmother has shown me several things about the medical profession that need work. One of those is the way her doctor deals with her medical card. Every time we go for a doctor's visit, the girl behind the counter wants all the medical information off my grandma's medical card to be written out on a form. I've always thought it would be so much easier if they had a way to scan grandma's card and then store the information on their computer. It would mean so much less paperwork for the doctor and the patient.

I think they would really benefit from buying an insurance card scanner such as MedicScan. The MedicScan + ScanShell 800N package would let the doctor easily scan the image of medical insurance cards, which could then be stored as a file on their computer for future reference.

This would definitely improve customer service, mean less paper work, increase productivity and reduce human errors. From what I've read about it, it is also very easy to use. All you have to do is insert the card into the ScanShell 800N medical card scanner. Automatic detection will trigger the scan and scan the card in a matter of seconds. Then, MedicScan will take over the process and export or store the image depending on YOUR settings.

I'm going to be passing this information on to my grandma's doctor and see what he thinks about it. Anything to make life simpler is a plus in my book.
