The National Health Service (NHS) in the UK currently processes tens of thousands of COVID-19 tests daily, and that number is expected to increase to more than 100,000 tests per day. Before each sample can be processed, an E28 form must be logged into the system. The high volume of forms, paired with manual entry, has the potential to cause significant delays in testing and diagnosis.

Additionally, once a patient has been confirmed positive for COVID-19, several case report forms (CRFs) must be filed with the World Health Organization (WHO), some daily, to help with the clinical characterization of COVID-19 and inform a global response.


Automation Anywhere and Microsoft experts have developed a proprietary solution to help accelerate the reporting and processing of many complex forms, including CRFs and E28.

This highly secure solution, comprised of Automation Anywhere RPA with native Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) and Microsoft Cognitive Services, can:

  • Automatically extract and process data from forms, including handwriting and checkboxes
  • Be rapidly deployed on cloud or on-prem, and scale to handle tens of thousands of pages a day
  • Digitize information to improve decision-making and offload frontline staff to spend more time on higher priority tasks.

Automation Anywhere is offering this solution for free for three months for qualified first responders and will assist with deployment free of charge. Contact us today to get started.
