Pharmacy Radically Upgrades Document Scanning Process



A local pharmacy serving three communities along the central coast of California community.  The pharmacy employs 4 full-time pharmacists and several part-time staff.


  • Prescription Orders
  • Insurance Cards


The pharmacy had an older, basic capture software that was limited in file naming capabilities.  The pharmacists had to manually name files, then move them into various locations in their system.  Since it is a small, local pharmacy they had minimal IT support and needed an out-of-the-box solution that is easy to implement and easy to use.


  • 1 PaperStream Capture Pro Workgroup License
  • 1 Fujitsu fi-7160 Document Scanner

The pharmacy uses PaperStream Capture Pro and Zonal OCR to pull last name, first name, and birth date.  They are able to automatically name the files and send them to the appropriate location, which could be one of three locations - their C: drive, a cloud application, or their FTP site.  They also have the ability to release a document to all of these locations simultaneously to cut down on redundancy.
