Does a Highly Efficient Process Always Require AI?

Everyone talks about AI (and more appropriately machine learning) as being the silver bullet to the challenge of achieving highly efficient business processes. And on the surface, the excitement and perspectives appear appropriate. After all, machine learning has the ability to see things in data that humans might never notice and automatically perform tasks with […]

Attachment Disorder in Healthcare: Radical Improvement without Radical Disruption

In part one of this article, I covered several aspects that, together conspire to create a process nightmare when it comes to document-based information contained within attachments. And while many efforts and desires are focused on how to rid processes of documents altogether, the most comprehensive and flexible means to transform slow, complex, and manual […]

In Healthcare, We’re Dealing with Another Type of Attachment Disorder

Earlier this year, Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH) released their 2020 Index which measures the progress of adopting automation for a variety of administrative processes. The upshot is that billions of dollars are being saved by converting manual processes and the data they use into electronic transactions and 2019 increased savings by $20 billion […]

Are You Ready for Intelligent Document Processing? | Part 2: The Rise of Machine Learning

How can IDP software simultaneously push through both the complexity barrier and expand to more complex documents? Machine Learning, that’s how. Now, I won’t ever make the claim that machine learning is a magical silver bullet, but when it comes to the chore of crunching large amounts of data to identify patterns and optimal solutions, […]

Are You Ready for Intelligent Document Processing? | Part 1

Don’t call it “OCR” anymore. Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) or what analyst firm Deep Analysis calls “cognitive capture” is something well beyond the traditional approach of applying brute force OCR on documents in order to create searchable content. In fact, increasing OCR is not needed at all with more and more documents born digital. All […]

How the Healthcare Documents You Use Affect the Potential for Automation

Within practically any industry, key processes hinge upon access to information and data stored within documents and it is no less in healthcare. Even with significant advancements with EHR/EMR and interoperability, use of documents continues to flourish due to a number of factors including that documents are easy to use, and changing from documents to […]

Taking Document Automation “Beyond OCR”

Most organizations presume that the foundation of document automation relies upon optical character recognition (OCR). This is largely due to the fact that most documents are text-based and therefore, the primary methods available for automation tasks such as document classification and data entry require OCR (among other techniques). But the perspective that document automation is […]

Intelligent Document Processing: Pre-trained vs. User-trained

Quick, which animal is smarter?  If you selected the newborn baby. you’re right! And if you selected the newborn Gazelle, you’re right!  Ok, both assertions cannot possibly be correct…can they? After all. the human will ultimately be able to communicate and do things that the Gazelle could never do. But the Gazelle, as a newborn, […]
