Speech Recognition

The shortest distance between medical dictation and the EHR

Speech Recognition for Healthcare

Speech Recognition improves St Joseph's workflow efficiency

Speech recognition drives efficiencies and cost savings in clinical documentation by turning clinician dictations into formatted documents -- automatically.

Front-end speech recognition allows clinicians to dictate, self-edit and sign transcription-free, completed reports in one sitting – directly into a RIS/PACS system or EHR. Front-end speech recognition also allows physicians to navigate quickly from one section of the EHR to another, saving valuable time.

Background speech recognition turns clinician dictation into speech-recognized first drafts that medical language specialists (MLS) edit, resulting in up to 100% gains in MLS productivity when compared to traditional transcription.
