Below is a high level overview of the TTS Business Services data capture subsystems. Data Capture Subsystems
Optical Character recognition (OCR)
TTS Business Services utilizes OCR to improve quality, reduce costs and shorten turn-around time.
Key From Image (KFI)
Claims that cannot be processed by OCR are routed to our internally developed KFI system. Our KFI system also includes low level validation edits.
Quality Control Module
Captured claim data is subject to quality control edits. For example, captured names are compared with a US Census Bureau listing of names. If the captured name does not match our census bureau data base it is automatically subject to a second review.
Base Double Key Module
TTS Business Services utilizes "OCR Enhanced" double key. This provides highly accurate data using less labor thus reducing client costs. The double key module can be used on selected fields or the entire claim.
Enhanced Double Key Module
We use this for super critical fields. This process is triggered in the event the referee keyer does not agree with either of the two previous keyers. In this situation the field is again keyed by a senior keyer. This approach further increases accuracy.
