Alameda County Medical Center of Alameda, CA Installs RICAR

April, 2009-Ann Arbor, MI: Alameda County Medical Center of Alameda, California has chosen to install Freedom Imaging Systems’ RICAR document/content management software suite.

RICAR (Record Image Capture And Retrieval) is a scalable software suite that can manage the documents and content of every department within an organization.  RICAR is implemented in departments such as Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Administrative, Contracts, and Human Resources to create paperless synergies and efficiencies among the processing of documents.

The following RICAR modules were installed at Alameda County Medical Center to assist in the billing processing of Explanations of Benefits (EOBs) and requisitions, as well as the handling of human resources and accounts payable documents:

  • FreeScan: scanning application that works on a scan workstation to capture scanned documents, placing them on an imaging server via barcode recognition or manual indexing
  • FreeView: viewing application allowing for document/file search and retrieval—in less than 3 seconds
  • FreeWf: workflow application enabling users to electronically process documents by creating a rules/roles based work queue system, all while providing a complete audit trail
  • FreeDVD: application that archives all scanned images by ‘burning’ them to a DVD-R


Alameda County Medical Center is committed to maintaining and improving the health of all County residents, regardless of ability to pay.  The Medical Center will provide comprehensive, high quality medical treatment, health promotion, and health maintenance through an integrated system of hospitals, clinics, and health services staffed by individuals who are responsive to the diverse cultural needs of our community.

The Medical Center, as a training institution, is committed to maintaining an environment that is supportive of a wide range of educational programs and activities. Education of medical students, interns, residents, continuing education for medical nursing, and other staff, along with medical research, are all essential components of our environments.
