ReadSoft selected for major breast cancer study

ReadSoft selected for major breast cancer study ReadSoft DOCUMENTS for Forms will enable one of the world's leading cancer research organizations to rapidly process over 100,000 survey questionnaires in a UK study, and help save more lives. This study is being carried out by The Institute of Cancer Research, one of the world's leading cancer research organizations, and Breakthrough Breast Cancer, the UK's leading breast cancer charity. The aim is to examine the risk factors relating to breast cancer and the study, The Breakthrough Generation, will run for years to come. A comprehensive questionnaire is being sent out to over 100,000 volunteers, and their responses will be immediately scanned, verified and archived electronically using the software ReadSoft DOCUMENTS for Forms. This will enable the results to be further analyzed with the goal of discovering the causes of breast cancer. Dr Michael Jones of The Institute of Cancer Research says: "With previous surveys we had to key in the data on the forms manually, which was very time-consuming and meant we couldn't see the results immediately. Using ReadSoft for this survey means that we can scan the questionnaires as soon as they come in and get an immediate 'snapshot' of the responses." ReadSoft worked closely with The Institute in the design of the questionnaire to help capture information more easily and accurately. As well as reducing the time and cost of processing the survey, The Institute of Cancer Research can deploy staff more productively in checking and verifying data, rather than keying it in manually. With the results stored electronically, The Institute can also benefit from less costly offsite storage of the paper records. " We are very glad to have been chosen for this important survey in the UK. We are very proud that our technology can be of used for this admirable task," says Jan Andersson, President at ReadSoft.
