Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF (formerly Nuance)

As an expert on electronic health records (EHRs) in legal matters involving medical malpractice, I regularly receive large PDFs (1000's of pages) containing images of text-based medical records. I first make each PDF "searchable" which allows me to look for specific keywords in the document. This saves me an incredible amount of time since I am often asked about specific items from these large records. Without the "make searchable" feature, I would be required to try and skim through 1000's of pages looking for a specific event, which has proved to be less than effective! Another feature that is useful to me is the ability to "cut and paste" from the PDF into a word document which greatly facilitates my note-taking.
  • Makes PDFs containing images of text, searchable.
  • Allows cut and paste from the PDF into a word document.
  • Allows highlighting of key findings within the PDF.
  • Sometimes the edit feature segments the PDF document in ways that make cutting and pasting a multi-step process since the entire section cannot be selected at once.
  • Making a large document searchable can take 20-30 minutes. It would be great if this was a faster process.
  • The ability to make images of text searchable enables me to do my job. Without this ability it was virtually impossible to find relevant information in these large documents.
  • The return on investment was huge. I can now take on much more work than before.
Power PDF is very easy to use. I have not had any problems learning new features or doing what needed to be done.
Better "make searchable" features in Kofax Power PDF.

Make searchable, sign documents, cut and paste.
The make searchable feature is incredibly useful as is the ability to cut and paste information from a PDF to a word document.
