Data Entry is required to transcribe the data from the Test Requisition Form into the Laboratory Information Management System. To reduce cycle time for the specimen test process data entry much must be done quickly and accurately. You do not want the lab to be waiting on data entry to be completed. As long as volume of tests is small data entry tasks are manageable but what if the volume exceeds a few hundred tests every day. You want all the data to be keyed- accurate addresses, accurate data for billing and accurate data on tests to be performed.
Public Opinion Surveys from more than a hundred different cities and counties across the country come to ARDEM for Survey Data Entry and Survey Processing.
How Do You Deliver Success in Public Opinion Survey Data Entry?
How Do You Deliver Success when the data entry service is outsourced to you?
The task of data entry in itself is relatively straight forward. Data which exists on a form needs to be keyed to a digital format. This is done by a data entry operator transcribing data from the form into a digital file.
Outsourcing Data Entry Service is a natural and logical choice.
In my last article I asked-When was the last time you baked your own loaf of bread? Or, stitched your own clothes? Or grow your own food? We really would never think of doing any of these because it is more efficient use of our time to buy the bread from the grocery, or buy the dress at the store. In effect we are quite happy outsourcing these tasks.
The Merriam Webster dictionary defines Success as…. “The correct or desired result of an attempt”. When you achieve success you have achieved the correct or desired result. When a business claims that it delivers success it is promising that it will deliver the correct, or, desired result.
For many businesses data entry becomes an outsourced service. While they could all collect and key the data from incoming paper applications, surveys or health claims themselves – they choose to outsource this service.
When was the last time you baked your own loaf of bread? How about making your own clothes? Or growing your own food to sustain yourself, and your family?
We really would never think of doing any of above because it is not an efficient use of your time. It makes much more sense to buy the bread from the grocery, or buy the dress you love from the local boutique. Although, in effect we have outsourced those tasks, this has become the norm for us.
Transcribing data has been done for ages. Taking information and putting it down on a tablet or paper so it would be available for a wider audience has gone on for a long time.
However technology, as with many jobs we do, has changed the process of data entry. It no longer required the person doing the data entry to be in the same physical proximity of the provider of information. It also reduced the dependence on the unique skills of the individual data entry operator.
Delivering the Best Data Entry Service requires the delivery of the Best Data and the Best Service.
Delivering 100% accurate data requires that you have strict processes in place to transcribe data and you utilize necessary technology tools and validation rules to achieve the level of high data accuracy required by your client.
