The challenge

Dr. Maki Sugimoto has a hard time organizing and viewing operating notes (recorded details of the procedure and indicated results) whenever he works outside of the office. In hospitals, doctors’ desks are often buried under piles of mixed papers. This lack of organization can waste time and space, and may lead to lost or misplaced records.

The solution

Preserve the delicate nuances of handwritten notes by implementing high quality mobile scanning technology. The iX100 scanner allows doctors to organize, review, and access records even when they are working outside of the office. At the office, the iX500 takes care of various documents with high speed scanning of 25 ppm.

The benefits

  • New data can be scanned and shared anywhere
  • Easy access to information whenever necessary
  • Reduced storage space
