While the source data from client systems is typically available in the form of data files or extracts, there are some instances in which program data related to children and families is available in the form of images or PDFs of either electronically filled or handwritten forms. Extracting this type of data, particularly handwritten data, from PDKs is often a labor-intensive and error-prone process, especially when it is done manually. CUSP now offers support for the Amazon Textract tool that detects typed an handwritten text from a variety of document formats such as images and PDF files. The tool extracts text, forms, and tables from such documents using the Amazon Textract Document Analysis API.
- CUSP now supports the use of Amazon Textract to automate the extraction of handwritten content from PDF documents and image files, dramatically reducing the time and effort required for data entry for ingestion into CUSP while also enhancing the accuracy of data entry.
