Robert (Bob) Techentin is Principal Software Engineer in the Special Purpose Processor Development Group at Mayo Foundation (Rochester, Minnesota). Robert is one of the first users of the new Cray XMT supercomputer specially designed to analyze large amounts of data. The Mayo Clinic is a large clinical practice for medicine with over the years several millions patients. The clinic is also specialized on medical research and medical education. The new Cray XMT is being used to tackle different kinds of biomedical and bioinformatic problems that have been very challenging using traditional computer architectures. In one research project Bob is going to work with the electronic medical records on a million of patients with millions of events. The researchers assume that there are secrets buried in the information that is very challenging to extract using traditional data mining techniques. One example is the discovery that weight loss drug Fen-phen can lead to heart valve damage. The relationship has accidentally been discovered by a Mayo clinic data analyst. A supercomputer could have helped researcher find earlier such a relationship. There are other interesting and very valuable insights in the medical data that can not be mined out using a usual relational data base management system. The Cray XMT is very good at graph analytics and can be used to find patterns that are very difficult to discover otherwise. The algorithms and the necessary data structures …

Document Scanning is the process of transferring a text document onto one’s computer screen. More specifically and from a technical standpoint, document scanning takes a document and converts it into a more permanent and secured record of digital information. The old yellow, wrinkled, coffee-stained piece of paper becomes permanently restored, repaired and maintained – now offering the capacity to selectively and easily share, store and most importantly, access the information at will.
The Record Scanning process is familiar to many businesses throughout the UK and around the world, but far too many companies have yet to benefit from this powerful tool of information capture.
The healthcare sector is one of the last frontiers for the adoption of information technology in general. As a result, many medical practices have stagnated or decreased significantly in both actual dollars and certainly when adjusted for inflation. Doctors need to see more patients just to make the same living as they did years ago. Many physicians nearing the age of retirement have found that the nest egg they would have hoped to have in place is not there. Medical practice closure is quite commonplace in situations where physicians in their later years, are finding that the ability to maintain a good income based on a non-private practice with no technology adoption is increasingly difficult.
As a medical professional, your primary concern for a patient’s sustained health and well-being means more than just practicing good medicine. It also means running a good practice – one that can efficiently absorb a significant increase in patients without taxing the time and energy of the physicians in any significant way.
As physicians move to EMR (Electronic Medical Records) systems, they must still deal with the vast amounts of paper records they’ve accumulated up to that time. Medical Record Scanning converts the accumulated paper records, converts them to digital documents and allows for easy retention and immediate access. The conversion to digital does not adversely impact the accuracy or clarity of the original documents. In fact, faded documents (ie. old thermal faxes) can often be enhanced for increased clarity, during the process. A professional scanning bureau, specializing in medical record scanning knows to ensure that certain types of medical reports require careful replication to ensure that contrasts are maintained (ie. ECGs, BMDs, etc.). The other benefit, of course is that the physicians can free up valuable office space once all of the paper records are permanently removed.
Scanning documents offers a multitude of benefits: Ease of access, freeing up pace, ease of collaboration, security of documents, elimination of misplaced files, etc. Overall, document scanning offers the user the opportunity to usher in a new era of efficiency that is not only beneficial, it is necessity in an ever-changing business climate.
