Back Scanning

Hugh Symons provides a Back Scanning service to digitise a variety of record types within healthcare organisations which may not be frequently accessed but have lengthy retention periods. Scanning these records delivers benefits in terms of freeing up valuable space and ensuring greater data security and protection. Access controls and backed up data also facilitate compliance to GDPR and auditing processes.

Back scanned records may be ingested into Trust Electronic Document Management systems or held on other archive systems depending on the type of data. It is common for Back Scanning tasks to support Legacy Scan On Demand projects, but they may also constitute stand-alone requirements to deal with a specific record set.

Our wide experience of Back Scanning enables us offer customers information, advice and lessons learned from similar projects which can help inform decision making and planning the best course of action for their organisation.

We provide Back Scanning services to organisations that out-source their document scanning completely and also to those operating an in-house scanning set up, but call on Hugh Symons to assist at certain times or for specific requirements.
