Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To determine. the feasibility of implementing automated forms processing software to replace manual data entry at Oregon Immunization ALERT. METHODS: Evaluation of two automated forms processing software solutions to determine software interface usability and recognition accuracy along with evaluation of current research to determine current automated forms processing (AFP) utility. RESULTS: While the evaluation of the automated forms processing software did not allow quantifying recognition accuracy, interface usability with Teleform was preferred over that of CharacTell FormStorm. Research into timesavings and cost effectiveness suggest that automated forms processing will help realize increased staff productivity and a substantial ROI when based on increased timesavings over manual data entry. CONCLUSION: Further evaluation of AFP software vendors is needed. A longer testing and design phase along with training of both data entry staff and physician office staff will
