How do you key data from 10,000 forms and have less than 3 errors? What is the secret in achieving High Accuracy Data Entry? Highly Accurate Data Entry Data Entry has progressed beyond merely transcribing data from paper to digital format. Much of the data is still collected on paper – surveys, opinion polls, customer loyalty forms, medical claims, and application forms. This data to be effectively utilized needs to convert to digital. The need is not only to transcribe this data but to achieve close to 100% accuracy in the conversion of data from paper to digital format.
Achieving Highly Accurate Data Entry
When you give a person the daunting task of keying the data from thousands of forms you are depending only on the human skill level and human attention span. However, now if you double key the same data and then use compare programs you can check and correct for any errors made. This is the same reason why many sites will require you to key your email address two times into the online form. They are using the two data sets that you have keyed, they compare one set against the other- if both are identical they accept your input.
What if you further built-in intelligence into the data fields so that data key errors could be further prevented? Here is a simple example: you know a month data field cannot have the number 13- so when designing your data screens, you can prevent the possibility of operator ever entering 13 in the month field. You could take the same logic and design the field for the business rules unique to the client- a field can be only numeric and is limited to numbers 1 through 7 for example and it can be only 5 if the response under another field is 2. You get the idea; by combining database rules programming along with data entry you mix technology with the data entry effort to get the high accuracy data entry that you require.
High Accuracy Data Entry solutions for large datasets not only requires managing and successfully executing the effort driven workflow, but also the keying of 100% accurate data which is aided by database programming and correctly setting up the data validation rules.
