Serial Number Simple Ocr Programl
But in all these scenarios, identification or verification of a product requires you to first find the serial number. Then you need to write it down or type it into your database. Serial numbers normally consist of letters and numbers of a set length. Depending on their length, they can quickly become tedious to work with.

And if you use manual data entry to handle serial numbers, then you could be at risk of corrupting your own data. Even the most professional and well-trained employee is capable of making typing mistakes. Factors like fatigue, stress, and distraction make it impossible for a human to perform perfect manual data entry over a certain volume of data.
You can significantly improve data accuracy with mobile scanning solutions. Our mobile OCR (optical character recognition) technology is capable of scanning serial numbers with +99% accuracy. This is much more accurate than entering data manually.
The reason for that is that typing and writing mistakes will creep into any data set that relies on people entering data themselves. No one is capable of entering the correct data 100% of the time. OCR-enhanced mobile serial number scanning eliminates these mistakes from your processes.
Not only can you remove mistakes this way, a mobile serial number scanner offers instant results. This creates a huge advantage with regards to speed for processes that involve mobile scanning technology rather than typing. For example, in the case of mobile meter reading, scanning was found to be 20 times faster than writing or typing readings. This means, that you can see immediate results from all of your scanning activities in real-time.
Gathering serial numbers with mobile scanning offers a clean and simple solution for data collection without any of the headaches of deciphering handwritten reports or performing tedious manual data entry. But best of all, mobile scanning technology gives you the accurate data you need to make the right decisions.
This new level of agility empowers your workforce to perform serial number scans on the go. You can use this to improve service and make your workforce more responsive to changes in everyday business. For example, you can create a new product testing zone or a workforce checkpoint in an instant. All you need is a regular mobile device and the mobile serial number scanner from Anyline.
Another advantage of data processing being performed directly on the mobile device is that all of your data remains secure until you upload it to your network and backend systems. None of your sensitive or private data gets sent to 3rd party cloud services for processing. This level of security is perfect for an agile workforce. Once your serial numbers have been scanned, you can then upload it to your backend via a secure internet connection.
On the other hand, with our mobile serial number scanning solution, your workforce can just install an app integrated mobile scanning technology on their company or personal mobile device and begin scanning just a few moments later.
Table 6, as well as a value of k equal to 2, is meant to serve as a simple example for illustrative purposes only. Various state and federal agencies define policies regarding small cell counts (i.e., the number of people corresponding to the same combination of features) when sharing tabular, or summary, data.20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27 However, OCR does not designate a universal value for k that covered entities should apply to protect health information in accordance with the de-identification standard. The value for k should be set at a level that is appropriate to mitigate risk of identification by the anticipated recipient of the data set.28

For example, a covered entity physician may condition the provision of a physical examination to be paid for by a life insurance issuer on an individual's authorization to disclose the results of that examination to the life insurance issuer. A health plan may condition enrollment or benefits eligibility on the individual giving authorization, requested before the individual's enrollment, to obtain protected health information (other than psychotherapy notes) to determine the individual's eligibility or enrollment or for underwriting or risk rating. A covered health care provider may condition treatment related to research (e.g., clinical trials) on the individual giving authorization to use or disclose the individual's protected health information for the research. 45 C.F.R. 508(b)(4).46 45 CFR 164.532.47 "Psychotherapy notes" means notes recorded (in any medium) by a health care provider who is a mental health professional documenting or analyzing the contents of conversation during a private counseling session or a group, joint, or family counseling session and that are separated from the rest of the of the individual's medical record. Psychotherapy notes excludes medication prescription and monitoring, counseling session start and stop times, the modalities and frequencies of treatment furnished, results of clinical tests, and any summary of the following items: diagnosis, functional status, the treatment plan, symptoms, prognosis, and progress to date.45 C.F.R. 164.501.48 45 C.F.R. 164.508(a)(2).49 45 C.F.R. 164.501 and 164.508(a)(3).50 45 C.F.R. 164.502(b) and 164.514 (d).51 45 C.F.R. 164.520(a) and (b). A group health plan, or a health insurer or HMO with respect to the group health plan, that intends to disclose protected health information (including enrollment data or summary health information) to the plan sponsor, must state that fact in the notice. Special statements are also required in the notice if a covered entity intends to contact individuals about health-related benefits or services, treatment alternatives, or appointment reminders, or for the covered entity's own fundraising.52 45 C.F.R. 164.520(c).53 45 C.F.R. 164.520(d).54 45 C.F.R. 164.520(c).55 45 C.F.R. 164.524.56 45 C.F.R. 164.501.57 A covered entity may deny an individual access, provided that the individual is given a right to have such denials reviewed by a licensed health care professional (who is designated by the covered entity and who did not participate in the original decision to deny), when a licensed health care professional has determined, in the exercise of professional judgment, that: (a) the access requested is reasonably likely to endanger the life or physical safety of the individual or another person; (b) the protected health information makes reference to another person (unless such other person is a health care provider) and the access requested is reasonably likely to cause substantial harm to such other person; or (c) the request for access is made by the individual's personal representative and the provision of access to such personal representative is reasonably likely to cause substantial harm to the individual or another person.
