Companies integrate voice workflow solutions with management services.
Entrada and athenahealth, a provider of cloud-based practice management, EHR, and care coordination services to medical groups, have signed an agreement designed to help the companies improve the integration between the voice-centric workflow solutions offered by Entrada and athenahealth's cloud-based electronic medical records and practice management services.
The partnership enables athenahealth to offer Entrada's clinical documentation technology to its 35,000-member health provider client base. Entrada provides a dictation solution for workflows in both single or multispecialty environments. Entrada's fully integrated desktop and mobile solution, available for all Apple iOS and Windows PC devices, syncs with the athenaCollector practice management system to build a daily worklist. A physician then dictates a note, and Entrada automates the text conversion and editing and inserts the finished note back into individual text fields within the athenaClinicals EHR system.
"We believe Entrada is a game changer in the mobile healthcare industry, providing users a level of flexibility and ease of use that has largely been absent in healthcare IT," said Jonathan Bush, chairman and CEO, at athenahealth. "This partnership with Entrada provides our customers a traditional, dictation-based option, enabling physicians to keep their productivity high, and get back to why they practiced medicine in the first place, patient care."
