Remote Data Entry Applications


Remote data entry (RDE) involves collecting information on electronic devices from soft copies, hard copies, web pages, image files, old copies and more. Rightly as the name suggests it involves data collection and entry from remote locations. Historically RDE was done on paper followed by laptops and finally using the Internet for data collection related to medical research.

Today RDE involves electronic data capture (EDC) and has many applications in several industries like healthcare industries, business segments, financial companies, insurance companies, private and government agencies. It is very helpful in creating a database followed by updating and maintenance of data. Data is collected from different sources and then arranged in a prescribed format. Today many outsourcing companies offer remote data entry services.

The remote data entry is applied in many areas like:

  • Insurance claim entry
  • Legal data entry
  • Law enforcement
  • Hospital records data entry
  • Surveys entry
  • Coupon redemptions entry
  • Mailing list/ label entry
  • Bill data entry
  • E-magazine and e-book publication
  • Patient notes data entry
  • Hand written entry
  • Credit card applications entry
  • Subscriptions entry
  • Research organizations
  • Statistical surveys

Some of the benefits of RDE include:

  • Less time or immediate data entry
  • Customer satisfaction
  • More control over documents
  • Increased accuracy and efficiency
  • Instant data retrieval possibility

Many new RDE applications for various fields like pharmaceuticals, banking, law enforcement are undergoing research. Remote data entry services are also outsourced by many BPO firms like Managed Outsource Solutions.
