To automatie collection of patient’s filled in responses, scan Patient surveys with your regular scanner, preferrably a document image scanner fitted with a paper feed tray for fast easy scanning. An image scanner can produce clear images of patient survey forms so they will be detected by survey scanning software which uses optical mark recognition to read the response marks filled into the checkbox bubbles.
A regular document image scanner
Paper Patient Surveys are scanned with a regular document image scanner set at a resolution of around 200. Clearly scanned images of the surveys are required tfor accurate detection of the filled in checkboxes and barcodes by OMR scanning software.
OMR Scanning Software
OMR scanning software detects checkbox responses and barcodes, captures the value data of the filled in checkboxes and barcodes and transfers the captured information to an excel spreadsheet or electronic management software.
Scanned form images uploaded into OMR scanning software, are read by the software which detects and captures value data from checkbox responses and barcodes.
