NVoq and Mi-Co Team Up
NVoq, a provider of Web-based solutions using voice recognition to speed workflow, announced a joint marketing agreement with Mi-Co, a mobile forms software company, under which the companies will collaborate to deliver voice-enabled versions of commonly used templates for the home health and long-term care industries.
The companies will also develop voice-enabled e-forms for other healthcare settings, such as ambulatory clinics and hospitals.
"For those organizations seeking to improve compliance and reduce the burden of data entry for nurses in particular, the combination of Mi-Co's Mi-Forms coupled with nVoq's SayIt affordable voice engine provides a unique value proposition," said Charles Corfield, CEO and founder of nVoq, in a statement. "Together we can create a streamlined workflow that greatly minimizes the amount of manual effort needed to complete forms like OASIS. Nurses can use voice or an automated pen to enter data directly into a template at the point of care. That same data is then available for quality review and submission for reimbursement within seconds."
SayIt is Web-based speech recognition software that uses Microsoft Speech Application Programming Interface to quickly, accurately, and securely capture data while automating workflow. SayIt has received the exclusive endorsement of the American Hospital Association for speech recognition. SayIt is currently deployed in a variety of healthcare settings across the U.S., in support of EMR and other clinical documentation.
"The ability to make a real impact on caregiver productivity and morale is exciting for us," said Greg Clary, CEO and cofounder of Mi-Co, in a statement. "Organizations that rely on these forms for reimbursement need quick, accurate turnaround. Using SayIt, we not only automate the form itself, but can use voice to script the flow of responses so less time is needed to complete each page. Customers that have seen a compelling return on investment, such as increasing cash-flow reimbursement [by] $1,200 a day with Mi-Forms will have another powerful entry option with voice input from SayIt."
