How the digital pen can help enable electronic forms in health care

Despite federal incentives to adopt electronic health records and establish a system of electronic health information exchange, many hospitals and providers still include paper forms in their workflows. Some vendors are trying to address this issue by offering devices and technologies to help bridge the gap between paper and electronic records. One such device is the digital pen, which can be used to fill out a paper form, then transmit the data electronically to a computer.

In this video, SearchHealthIT.com features writer Don Fluckinger sat down with Ginny Carpenter, vice president of marketing for Anoto Inc. and Suzanne Cogan, vice president of sales and marketing for Shareable Ink Corporation to get a first-hand view of the Anoto digital pen in action.

    The Anoto technology is always interesting, but docking the pen is a pain and most BlueTooth stacks are not able to reliably manage and entire days notes. Until this is solved, we are tethered to a system inside an office.
