Orlando, Fla. – Guinness Book of World Records this week recorded a document scan that measured just less than three quarters of a mile long at the 2008 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, the healthcare IT industry’s largest annual event. The record-setting uninterrupted scan, of a fetal monitor event, measured 3,875 feet and lasted one hour, 17 minutes and 22 seconds. Bowe Bell + Howell (BBH), Durham, N.C., employees used the Trūper 3600 low-volume production scanner to process the extra-long document.

The scan sets the stage for insurers seeking to create a paperless environment via accurate recording of a variety of paper documents in a reliable manner.
