The Challenge

As a well-established virtual gathering place for the international medical industry, DocCheck needed a shareable online viewing platform to display hundreds of thousands of documents for students and physicians and other healthcare professionals. Document security was a key concern, given the often sensitive nature of medical data and the site's mission of providing a resource intended strictly for the healthcare industry.

The Solution

DocCheck sought a stable, affordable viewing solution and implemented the Prizm Content Connect (since renamed PrizmDoc) using the cloud option. The HTML5 viewer facilitates the needs of the site's enormous user community, such as displaying a host of different document and image file formats. And just as importantly, PrizmDoc's search functionality handles large research periodicals seamlessly, making for quick access to relevant topics. Its generating of thumbnails for each page in a document is another time-saver, and its ability to operate regardless of device type – desktop, tablet or mobile – helps provide the reliability needed by DocCheck's diverse user base.

PrizmDoc also allows developers to control printing and downloading privileges based on user credentials, an important criteria for a site that prides itself on document security. And it conveniently converts files of dozens of types to common formats such as PDF for standardizing the archived content available to DocCheck users.

DocCheck was very complimentary of the documentation provided detailing PrizmDoc's functionality, as well as the technical support offered when problems did arise.

"The Accusoft team was fast, flexible, competent and – last but not least – very friendly," a company spokesman said. "We're looking forward to working together and integrate more features and products from Accusoft in the future."

The Result

The use of PrizmDoc as its viewing solution has helped DocCheck maintain its reputation as the definitive online repository of healthcare industry research and publishing tools in Europe. At the time of its implementation of the viewer, DocCheck estimated that 300,000 medical documents were retrievable on its site, and that number has grown thanks in part to the viewer's intuitive user controls and expansive functionality.

DocCheck is an excellent example of the versatility of PrizmDoc in a demanding field such as healthcare, where various types of documents and images need to be viewed within a single, zerofootprint application. The viewer's security and search functions are crucial for DocCheck but also for many other Accusoft clients, ensuring that only credentialed users can access the data and manage it efficiently.
