WESTBOROUGH, Mass., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Anoto, the world leader in digital writing technology, today announced that Anoto Live™ forms is now available for healthcare. This new digital writing solution enables healthcare professionals to expedite paper-based workflows by transforming handwriting into live information using the digital pen platform, making it immediately available in EMR systems.


Anoto Live forms is an easy-to-use modern alternative for healthcare organizations seeking to digitally capture information from handwritten forms into EMR systems. The technology is centered around a digital pen that utilizes a small camera situated under the ball-point tip and a nearly invisible dot-pattern printed on paper forms. The solution providesreal-time data capture back to EMR systems and document handling that simplifies workflow, reduces time and cost, and increases overall efficiency.

"Anoto Live forms is ideal for EMR providers because it offers the option to capture data by using existing paper-based processes, making the transition to digital processable data seamless," said Stein Revelsby, CEO of Anoto Group AB. "This new product enables healthcare organizations to improve their information workflow without having to introduce  any dramatic changes within their existing business processes. This results in measurable ROI in very short timeframes."

Digital writing is a modern data capture solution that requires minimal training, is extremely easy to use, and is very secure, since the digital pen encodes key data about the handwriting context, including the exact time it was written and the identity of the writer. The pocket-sized digital pen is mobile and provides a convenient, natural way to help providers focus on patient care and reduce worry about inaccurate input or losing valuable time with burdensome manual data entry, and time consuming paper handling.

In addition to healthcare, the solution is being used across a broad range of vertical market applications including field services, transportation, utilities, finance, government and many others.
