Do you process dental or medical claim forms? If so, then you know how complex and time-consuming the process can be to prepare each claim for scanning.
However, before you even think about scanning, you must consider the necessary evil of document prep. This usually includes the tedious task of manual sorting all incoming documents into neat piles of single and multiple page claims.
Additional work is needed to insert separators that define document boundaries. Sorting becomes even MORE COMPLEX when other claim types and documents are added to the mix.
AND if your claims include print or film dental X-rays, preparing those for scanning can be as enjoyable as a root canal! X-rays require special handling and may be routed to specialized equipment for scanning, or in some cases, physically stored in a separate location for future reference.
