When digitizing citizen records, do you know if they are "˜intelligent'? Simply scanning a file full of paper produces "˜flat' images. They can be stored electronically, but can they be searched for key data points?
Citizens are increasingly online and ready to communicate digitally in everyday activities. Leading commercial enterprises are meeting consumer needs where they want, when they want, and how they want. Naturally, citizens are expecting this same level of service from their government. As a result, government agencies are focusing on IT modernization and creating improved digital-user interactions.
Delivering more digital engagement is top of mind for state chief information officers. On this year's NASCIO State CIO Top 10 Priorities list, the second ranked category was Digital Government/ Digital Services, which encompasses "framework for digital services; portal; improving and digitizing citizen experience; accessibility; identity management; digital assistants; privacy" as key areas of focus. In addition, a recent Deloitte Insights survey of government officials found that nearly 75 percent of respondents indicated that COVID-19 has accelerated their government's digital transformation,but felt their organizations' digital efforts haven't gone far enough.
A key aspect of implementing robust digital services is making massive back-end improvements. In many cases, these improvements begin with existing records - both electronic and analog. As government agencies continue to advance digital services, they should consider Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) to make digitalization and data accessibility a reality.
Scanning a paper record produces ‘flat’ image files. Although these images can be stored electronically, “simple scans” provide no digital data to allow efficient searches or flow of information to agency applications. Intelligent documents make information securely accessible to support the mission.
A one-touch IDP solution captures digital data in concert with the digitization process to enable government agencies to interface with their core applications to glean insight and understanding. IDP couples with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to extract information eight times faster, and with better accuracy, than traditional optical character recognition (OCR) methods. This provides an economic and quick way to digitize data trapped on paper, microfiche, tapes, and more.
