About the project
The Laboratory's rapidly expanding network of offices and growing clientele necessitated the automation of the process of entering the data contained in application forms for patients' testing into its information system. In this one had to take account of the circumstance that INVITRO Laboratory's specialization in medical testing implied the vital importance of accuracy in the entry and processing of data. The Cognitive Forms technology was selected for the project. One of the main selection criteria was that a solution had to ensure fast and accurate scanning and recognition of forms containing thousands of fields.
