    The Healthcare Technology Revolution

    Technology has undoubtedly touched every aspect of human life and revolutionized many sectors. The Healthcare sector is no different, and technology has the power to transform it into a highly evolved experience for both patients and medical professionals. But many healthcare practices are stuck in the old way of doing things. Through the use of digital tools, like PDFelement for example, and other digital systems, Healthcare could be greatly improved. Here are just a few of the ways that technology could revolutionize healthcare: 1. More Accessible Data Easy accessibility of data from mega servers is the hallmark of today's advancing technology. Instant and detailed information is available in the blink of an eye and enables health professionals to share this information for research and data analysis purposes. Through "big data," diversified information can be collected from different populations and shared instantly. This helps in research studies, identifying risk factors and recommendation of preventive measures. 2. Improved Communication Innovative technologies have bridged the communication gap between healthcare professionals. Video chats, online discussion platforms, and real-time meetings are just some examples of the communication capabilities that have resulted in improved case management, treatments, and patient recovery. Video conferencing is also a cost-effective way to not only get specialist assistance but also to provide education and training to healthcare staff. This virtual communication bridges the gap between rural areas, and far-flung remote areas. Local GPs, nurses, midwives, health workers, etc. can generate face to face clinical services through teleconsultation to ensure correct treatment and procedures are being carried out. 3. Electronic Medical Records Previously, patient data was stored in different physical locations. But electronic medical records have centralized this system and streamlined it into running more smoothly and efficiently. Electronic medical records are stored in a central online location, keeping all of the patient's history, test results, diagnosis and other relevant information safe. This enables healthcare professionals to see the health trends of a patient quickly and easily. \ 4. Mobility and Mobile Apps Healthcare related mobile software applications are not only cost effective but time-saving also. Such software can enable patients to manage their health status efficiently, get prompted for regular checkups, get assistance in finding general medical information and access 24/7 accessibility to test results without booking an appointment with their doctor. Healthcare professionals can also use these apps to quickly access any medical knowledge, clinical trials or research from these mobile apps. 5. Convenient Digital Forms Healthcare related mobile software applications are not only cost effective but time-saving also. Such software can enable patients to manage their health status efficiently, prompt them for regular checkups, help in finding general medical information and providing 24/7 accessibility to their test results without booking an appointment with their doctor. On the other hand, healthcare professionals can quickly access any medical knowledge, clinical trials or research from these mobile apps. As you can see, technology can have a huge impact on healthcare. Innovations, trends, and digital healthcare services have already improved healthcare services in the following ways: By providing cutting-edge digital platforms Improved operational efficiency Efficient integrated approach to patient care Automated administrative and clinical processes Easy collaboration between different healthcare sectors Higher HIMSS (healthcare information and management systems society) Enhancing the capacity for innovation Better patient outcomes Reduced costs Healthcare has only touched the tip of the iceberg when it comes to technology, but it has already made good use of the benefits of technology and hopefully will continue to do so.

    The Top 5 Benefits of OCR

    Ditch that paper! With the digitization of paper-based records, not only have we been able to save a ton of trees, but we’ve also been able to increase efficiency in a big way. Digital records are now transferable, sortable, searchable, and more easily archived. However, with a lot of benefits to digitization also come some challenges. Luckily, these challenges can be overcome with a handy tool called OCR. As you might be aware, OCR refers to Optical Character Recognition. This is a technology used to recognize text within digital or scanned documents and photos. You can use this tool to convert virtually any type of image that includes text into an editable text document, even if the text is in handwriting. PDFelement, among many other programs, supports this tool. It’s probably obvious that this technology brings many benefits. Read on to discover the top 5 below: 1. Easy Editing Ever wanted to make changes to an old document you worked on but only have the hard copy available? Maybe you want to copy the formatting of an old form you filled out or created, but again don’t have a digital copy to work off of. The OCR tool is a lifesaver because you can use it to scan and digitize old documents so that you can easily edit them in a word processor or other type of suitable program, rather than having to type the all of the content outagain by hand. This saves a ton of time and manuallabor, and is obviously a major benefit. 2.Stress-free searching After you use OCR to detect the text in your scanned document, you can save your file in a format such as .doc,.txt, .pdf and more. You can view and edit these file types in programs like Microsoft Word, Excel, Adobe Acrobat, PDFelement, and more. All of these programs contain an internal searching function that lets you easily search for a certain word or phrase by simply pressing Ctrl+F in Windows or Command+F in Mac. Again, this saves so much time, since you don’t have to manually scroll through the entire document and scan every line to find the section you’re looking for, which can betime consuming if it’s a lengthy document. 3.Convenient Storage Options Get rid of those filings cabinets! When you digitize documents, you save physical storage space which frees up space in the office for more productive uses, like fitting in more desks and employees, or creating leisure spaces for open seating areas, foosball tables, TVs, you name it! You also reduce the need forpaper, and paper storage. 4.Accessibility for Everyone Once you scan and convert your document using OCR, you can make it available to many other users. Essentially, it will be available to anyone who has access to the database you’ve uploaded it to. This can be beneficial since it allows you to give customers access to these digitalfiles, so that they can easily view and review past records such as past payment receipts, purchase history, credit history, etc. and more. Plus, by uploading them to databases like Archive.org you can make these files publicly accessible by anyone around the globe. 5.Top-notch translation tools These days, OCR supports a huge number of languages. English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Indian, you name it. You scan a document in one language, digitized it, and translate it into almost any other language. This also saves time and resources, since you no longer need human translators to manually go through printed documents. This also helps your office productivity, since the turnaround time for projects is muchquicker when you don’t have to wait on translators to get your translated content back to you. Do you have any other benefits to OCR that you think should be mentioned? Let us know in the comments below!
  4. In this week’s tutorial post, we’ll discuss how to add stamps to PDFs using PDFelement for easier reviewing, collaboration, and teamwork. Stamps are a great collaboration tool, no matter how you use them. Whether you want to let your team know when their drafts have been approved, or show them where to sign on a document, you can clear up a lot of miscommunication through the use of stamps as an annotation tool. PDFelement offers a wide range of default stamps for users. You can access these by navigating to the “Comment” tab and selecting “Stamps.” This will display a drop-down menu of different stamp options. Once you click on the stamp you would like to use, you will be able to place it anywhere on your document. You will also be able to change the sizing to suit your needs. However, it’s important to note that there are some properties you can can’t change, such as color. But what about custom stamps? In some circumstances, you might want to create your own stamp, whether it’s a fancy seal of approval or just a stamp that doesn’t come with default settings. To do this, head over to the “Comment” tab and click on “Create Stamp > Create Custom Stamp.” Your custom stamp will need to be an image file. You can’t directly type text to create a stamp. Once you create your stamp, it will show up under “custom” for easy access in the future. You can also later manage your stamps to edit or delete previous custom stamps you created. Here is an example of a custom stamp I created, which I named “Approved.” Here, I’m able to Create a new stamp, edit the current one, or delete it. In this scenario, “Edit” just means swapping out the photo. The name remains the same. There you have it! This is how you work with stamps in PDFelement for Windows. Any questions or tutorial requests? Let me know in the comments below! We also have an online forum where you can get your PDFelement questions answered. Hope to see you there!

    Tips on How to Reboot Your Brain

    The week’s just started, and you know what that usually means - your brain is in need of a reboot! Read on for some handy tips on how to improve your productivity at work by clearing your head and keeping your brain functioning just right! Studies show that when you’re extremely stressed out and in desperate need of sleep, some of your skills start to slide. It’s difficult to fully comprehend your surroundings, and you tend to lose focus. Performing the simplest of tasks becomes a challenge in itself. Stress can disrupt the way your brain functions and can significantly slow you down. To get back on track, you need to take a break and reboot your brain; however, this is often easier said than done. I mean you can’t exactly just decide to take a quick nap in your workplace. Your boss may not fully approve. So, how can one reboot their brain and energize their mind once again? Here are some tips to help you feel less tired: Adjust your schedule according to your energy levels Not everyone is a morning person. For a lot of people, waking up early is not that easy. It only seems logical that if you try to do your work at hours when your energy level is down, and you’re feeling sluggish, you probably won’t be very productive. The solution is simple: to reboot your brain, you need to reboot your schedule. Change your routine and do your most important tasks at a time when your energy levels are high, and you feel fresh. This way you’ll be able to complete the tough tasks to the best of your abilities. This means, if you are one of those non-morning people, spend your first bit at the office going through emails and relaxing with a cup of coffee – save the important tasks for later! Sleep well Naturally, you’re going to be less productive if you’re tired and if you haven’t slept well. People need a regular sleep cycle of 7 to 8 hours every night, so if you miss out on rest, you won’t be able to function fully. To reboot your brain, you can take a nap in a quiet, comfortable room if that option is available to you. Apart from that, if you readjust your sleeping schedule long-term, it will help in the long run with your productivity. Take a mental break to eat and drink water Working through lunch every day won’t actually improve the quality of your work, or your output for that matter. Instead, by the time the day ends, you’ll be tired and would still have loads of work to do. Not eating will make you less focused, and actually negatively affect your productivity. This is why you should go and take a mental break to eat out with your friends, even if it’s only for a short period of time. A 20-minute break isn’t going to hurt you; instead, you’ll be able to reboot your brain and re-focus your energies. Plus, don't forget to drink water - it enhances mental function and keeps everything in your body running smoothly. After nourishing yourself and taking a mental break to think about other topics and chat with friends, you’ll feel refreshed and will be ready to tackle your workload more efficiently. Exercise Exercising won't only help keep you fit, but it will also re-charge your brain. Exercise reduces stress and improves mental stamina. Your mind works better after exercise, probably due to the increased blood flow and oxygen to your brain. This allows you to focus better, improve your memory, and think more clearly, ensuring you can complete even the most challenging tasks at hand. This is why you should work out on a regular basis, or even just go for a morning stroll every day to get the blood pumping! Of course, using digital tools to help simplify your work tasks doesn’t hurt either. That’s why it’s handy to use tools like PDFelement to take a load off your mind. Fill out that form more easily, sign documents quickly, or easily collaborate with others without having to use a ton of brain power. Try it out today! Having any other tips for rebooting your brain? We’d love to hear about them in the comments!

    Automate Your Invoices with PDF Tools

    Ensure you have the most efficient processing software to eliminate errors and save your business time and money. So your business is growing – that’s great! But as your business grows, you need a more streamlined and cost-efficient process for managing your accounting needs. Having an automated invoice processing system is essential to businesses that manage a large amount of transactions. Invoice automation saves time, energy, and labor costs. This creates better cash flow management and allows your business to function smoothly. Without reliable software to collect, process, and track your invoices, you are more likely to encounter errors in financial statements and cash reconciliation. These inaccuracies eat up time and money that could otherwise be reinvested elsewhere in your business! So, investing in invoice automation is definitely worth the savings in excess accounting costs. Taking into account the time and resources required to process an average invoice — which may vary based on your company’s operations and business model — it can cost up to $20 or more per invoice. Automation processing takes the human factor out, reducing the labor costs for data entry, but it leaves open the possibility of computer error. This means faster data processing but the potential for flawed reports, or fees and penalties from audits. Well-engineered software can reduce the potential for error with more intuitive processing technology. Better technology means less oversight in your accounts payable department. When you move to an automated processing model, you need software that you can trust to do the job right. That means accurate data extraction, and coding written to manage that data effectively with little margin for error. Investing in quality automation software can save your company huge money over the long term. But before you use an invoice automation software, you need to make sure your files are ready to go. The trick is converting your paperwork to digital. Going paperless is environmentally friendly, and extremely beneficial to business in terms of cost savings and efficiency. It’s important to be able to easily convert paper invoices and receipts for times when a paper copy is all you have access to. There are some excellent PDF tools out there that help you with this process. PDFelement, for instance, lets you effortlessly convert your files to PDF, scan receipts and documents, and extract accurate data. PDFelement software is simple and easy to use. It is formatted specifically for businesses both large and small. Good PDF conversion software gives you the ability to move all of your documents and date to an online platform. This can improve the automation process by giving your company the ability to work with both digital and paper copies of invoices and receipts when convenient. In addition to scanning receipts and extracting data, PDFelement is also equipped with user-friendly editing tools. This can be a great tool for communicating between departments or with clients, building reports and collecting data, and compressing data from hundreds of invoices into usable data. Once you’ve gone digital, you can establish an automated entry system that will keep your accounts payable department running smoothly and efficiently. There are many invoicing automation software programs on the market that can assist you in doing this. Improve your invoice processing system with smarter routing, data extraction, and centralized billing. In business, every penny counts. Go digital today using tools like PDFelement to help you streamline your business and save you money. Have any other suggestions for automating the invoicing process?

    The Benefits of Printing to PDF

    For most businesses, the complete elimination of paper isn’t really a feasible option; but that doesn’t mean that they can’t still participate in “go paperless” initiatives. Even small steps can help. A small reduction in paper usage can cut costs significantly and make important daily tasks more efficient! Whether you work for a startup or a well-established company, reducing paper always has its benefits. Plus, PDFs can be your best friend, since many tools that aredesigned to assist in going paperless involve the use and management of PDF files. Why use PDFs? PDF is a file format that can be used without the need of a particular operating system or even hardware or software. Everything that is required for displaying the content of the PDF is embedded within the format including the fonts, texts, and the graphics. As a result, PDF is considered to be an almost exact digital representation of a paper document. So, for documents where the layout is important, PDF is the ideal choice. Plus, it eliminates the use of hard copies! Generally, almost all computing devices including tablets and smartphones can display PDFs, and they will look the same regardless of the platform you use for viewing them. Apart from their portability, using PDFs is also a good idea for the following reasons: · Quick access By converting the documents to PDFs, you can quickly get access to the information. Websites and web pages can also be converted to PDFs so that you can, later, go back and have a look at them. · Security Converting Microsoft Word documents into PDFs ensures that the document cannot be copied, altered, or even printed without using a special PDF editing tool. Thus, you can give others access to your work without losing control of your documents. Benefits of printing to PDF When going paperless, printing to PDF can provide the following benefits. 1. Document formatting is maintained PDFs enhance the efficiency and professional image of the company. With documents such as invoices and receipts converted into PDFs, it is easier to sort, file, and organize the files, plus their formatting is properly maintained. A big issue when sharing Word documents is that the formatting can change when being transferred between devices. This can make you look unprofessional to your colleagues. By printing a document to PDF before sending, you can be sure the document will look exactly the way you intended. 2. Client communication is made easier Communicate sales and offers to your customers without paying for printing and postage costs. Since many people now have smart devices, it is easier to send out PDFs so that the customers can access it immediately. As a result, efficiency is increased while storage costs and paper copies decrease. PDF files can be easily retrieved on the go too, and can be shared via email or over a network with coworkers, clients, etc., reducing the hassle of carrying a pile of papers with you. Plus, the transport of data is more efficient, and no document couriers or fax machines are involved when you simply print to PDF. 3. File size is more compact A huge advantage of the PDF file format is that you can compress high-quality files to a relatively small file size easily and without losing quality. That’s ideal for sending documents to clients because the file size won’t be too big to send over email, and PDF files don’t take up a ton of space on your hard drive. Next time you are sending that long presentation to a client or colleague, make sure to print to PDF! 4. Security and privacy are improved When it comes to security, the only way to protect sensitive data on a hard copy sheet of paper is to lock it inside a filing cabinet or throw it in the paper shredder. PDFs on the other hand, can be easily encrypted with a password so that no one else can make changes to it. You can also redact certain information that you don’t want visible to everyone receiving the document. Have any other reasons why it’s beneficial to print documents to PDF?

    4 Benefits to Working Remotely

    Who hasn’t fantasized about breaking free from the confines of the office from time to time? The freedom and the flexibility of working remotely from wherever you’d like is certainly an appealing idea to many, especially when it comes to the younger generations.  Luckily, with today’s growing trend of virtual offices and remote workplaces, even if it’s only on an occasional basis, many companies are now open to the option of telecommuting and letting their employees work from home, and away from the traditional office setting to allow for more flexibility in schedules or improve productivity. This is especially beneficial for someone who does creative work. Sitting in an office isn’t always the most inspiring environment for coming up with brilliant ideas, and as someone who works in the creative field of marketing myself, I can vouch for this fact. Getting inspired by the world around you is usually the best way to come up with great ideas, and it’s often hard to do that while sitting at a desk. With the rise in popularity of working remotely, the important question that still remains is whether virtual offices are actually effective. And a lot of data points to yes. Here are just a few of the benefits: Environmental benefits An article from Chron notes that virtual work benefits the environment because fewer people are traveling in cars, busesand trains, which lowers the amount of vehicle emissions and decreases fuel usage. As a commuter myself, there’s no question that eliminating a daily commute from my schedule would hugely benefit my working life, both for the amount of time itsaves, and for the fact that it would greatly lessen my carbon footprint. With global warming being such an important issue, cutting down fuel emissions by working remotely is a benefit for everyone. Productivity Hours aren’t wasted commuting, so more time can be devoted to getting work done, without the added distractions from coworkers as well. According to this survey by TinyPulse, respondents working remotely are happier, feel more valued, and are overwhelmingly more productive. In fact, when respondents were asked the question “Do you believe you get more work done when working remotely?” 91% of them answered yes. “About 66% of the respondents to a FlexJobs’ survey said that they are more productive when they are not in the office. Why is that? Well, 76% said there are fewer distractions overall, and 70% wanted to avoid the stresses of commuting. Other reasons for toiling off-site were to avoid office politics (69%), be in a quieter environment (62%), wear more comfortable clothes (54%), have less frequent meetings (46%), or personalize their office environments (51%).” Better work-life balance Virtual offices provide more flexibility and the ability to create your own hours, allowing you to spend more time with family and friends. This is especially important for millennials, who place a higher importance on work-life balance than earlier generations, likely because it gives them more time to care for young children or aging baby boomer parents. The benefits of work-life balance for employees also include reducing stress, improving personal well-being, improvinglong term health and eliminating the need to take many sick days, offering autonomy and personal employee growth, and increasing focus. But there are also benefits for employers too. On top of employees being more productive, there is less turn-over, and an improved company reputation. However the different parties don’t necessarily agree on what constitutes as enough of when it comes to work-life balance. “A 2015 Workplace Study revealed that 67% of employers feel that their workers have a work-life balance, while 45% of employees disagree.” There are many things employers could do to fix this statistic, such as offering the ability to take unpaid leave, having senior managers model work-life balance in their own schedules, or setting clear boundaries by not re sponding to work emails during their time off. Employee retention Since virtual offices provide more schedule flexibility and the comfort of being able to work independently, it only makes sense that this results in higher employee retention. According to The Balance, telecommuting and flextime appeals to younger, more technically savvy generation of workers. So if your company hopes to attract and recruit this demographic, then an employee benefit package that allows for flexible schedules and remote work options would be a plus. This virtual office arrangement won’t necessarily work for every type of job, or every type of employee. But with the growing number of remote workers, freelancers, and entrepreneurs that are starting to pop up in today’s workforce, it makes sense that this arrangement should be seriously considered by employers. And along with employers evolving, business software products need to evolve to support this too. PDF editing software is no exception, as employees working remotely need full mobile support while working with PDFs on the go. Fortunately, mobility is an area where PDFelement has you covered!

  10. Keeping your clients happy is the hallmark of any good business. After all, that’s where your profits come from, so at the end of the day, it’s what keeps your company afloat. To ensure your meeting the needs of your customers, it’s important to have the right tools at your disposal. And one of the most useful tools is the PDF. As we all know, the PDF has numerous benefits, which is why it has become a publishing standard for many organizations across the globe. The format ensures quicker document delivery in a cost-effective and versatile way and allows the receiver to easily view, store, print, share, and navigate a document that likely carries vital information. Here are five ways in which PDFs help you meet the needs of your most important clients and customers: 1. There’s no or little cost involved No special program is needed for viewing a PDF. In fact, one can easily download one of the many free PDF readers available, including the free trial version of PDFelement! Despite being free, PDFs are much faster, and the documents are high-quality as well. Due to the format, the documents can be distributed globally without spending a penny, and they can be printed anywhere too., meaning you can send any document, to any customer, at any time! 2. The format is the same across all platforms PDFs are the same across all devices. You won’t experience missing fonts, or formatting issues like you would in a text document. It is crucial that business agreements and documents look the same for all people viewing them, particularly when application forms, invoices, tender documents, tax returns, and other similar files are involved. PDFs ensures that the files given to the clients can be viewed the same way across multiple platforms without changing the appearance of the document, meaning each customer sees the document the way they were meant to. 3. It’s perfect for record-keeping and archiving It’s easy to make PDFs searchable, which means it’s also easy to navigate them. For instance, if a client receives a lengthy business document, they can use the search function to simply enter a keyword to quickly find the content they’re looking for. You can also magnify the document without negatively affecting the quality, which is useful when there are visual aids like charts and graphs involved. A PDF format is also ideal for archiving and storing documents. It’s a highly compressed document format that lets you effectively manage text, vectors, bitmaps, and more. 4. It’s easy to email and share Since PDFs are compact in size, they can be easily shared and emailed. PDFs reduce the size of the document drastically without affecting the quality of the document. Consequently, PDFs reduce storage and expensive bandwidth issues which means that changing word processor documents, spreadsheets, and graphics to PDFs can significantly reduce the document size, thus contributing to real savings in bandwidth congestion and email server storage. Another plus is that significant time can be saved when retrieving emails from the server. 5. And it’s more secure Documents like legal contracts and proposals are at high risk of manipulation or falling into the wrong hands which can lead to grave consequences. However, with PDF documents, there is a lower risk of tampering involved since PDFs provide both 40-bit and 128-bit encryption along with password restricted viewing, printing, and copying. Moreover, by using watermarks, users have the ability of digitally emboss the document with their own, unique brand. As well, they can redact sensitive content that they don’t want just anyone to read, meaning clients can feel secure when doing business with you. Having a strong PDF editor like PDFelement on hand helps you ensure that you are meeting the needs of your customers by providing them with top-notch documentation.
