A surgery center enjoys a simpler solution

The staff at a large surgery center is focused on the important business of patient care. But their jobs also involve lots of paper work. Up to 150 forms and letters arrive daily as part of serving over 13,000 patients. To deal with this flood of documents, they rely on a Kodak i2820 Scanner, integrated with workflow and document management software. The solution captures data and makes it available to 20 clinical team members.

  • Speed: Busy staffers love the fact that the scanner starts working instantly with no warm up time. And once rolling, the i2820 Scanner can process up to 8,000 pages per day at 70 pages per minute. The i2820 Scanner also eliminates the time-wasting need to photocopy color documents before scanning to improve quality.
  • Simplicity: Everyone at the center mastered the scanner in minutes, thanks to brilliantly intuitive Smart Touch technology. The i2820 Scanner automatically handles problems that can slow down the process, such as rotating pages so they’re right reading, and recognizing color pages mixed in with black and white.
  • Reliability: Since documents received are critical to patients’ health, the surgery center counts on the reliable uptime of the i2820 and the 3-year warranty that backs it up.
