1stLine Oncology has gone paperless by replacing their scanner with a tablet PC and Active Ink Software. Previously they would fill out the paper document and then scan it later on. The scanned image would be saved as a PDF document and then stored on their file server as a permanent archived document. Now, the paper document has become an Active Ink document (see above), filled out on the tablet PC and saved as a PDF just like the scanned image.
Active Ink’s Service Manager automates the dispatching and scheduling of electronic forms to field personnel. The forms are dispatched via Microsoft’s Outlook email application and then stored in the Outlook Calendar. The forms can then be opened via the Calendar, filled out and then emailed back to the Office.
