SynaMed Taps ScanSoft Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical
PEABODY, Mass. and KEW GARDENS, N.Y. - SynaMed announced that it will integrate ScanSoft® Dragon NaturallySpeaking® Medical to enable speech recognition within its suite of EMR software.
This new integration will enable users of SynaMed's Web-based EMR and Practice Management solution to create clinical reports directly into their EMR solution by using their voice - diminishing the need for manual transcription and reducing the costs and turnaround time of creating reports through medical transcription services.
Combining the power of dictation with the full suite of benefits available with SynaMed's EMR system, like e-prescribing, workflow management tools, and document management, physicians can dictate patient notes directly into the system to create referral letters, procedure documentation, and more.
Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical 8 has built-in understanding for more than 300,000 words, and includes additional vocabularies covering terms found in 14 different specialty areas, including General Medicine, Pathology, Radiology, Cardiology and Surgery disciplines. Healthcare organizations can also add their own words to the solution to create customized vocabularies. Care providers can take advantage of voice-activated shortcuts, allowing a single word or phrase to automatically populate fields within the SynaMed solution.
"An increasing number of our customers are realizing the many benefits of a speech-based solution, and the integration of our solutions enables compliance with today's stringent regulations," said Back Kim, M.D., SynaMed. "ScanSoft's Dragon NaturallySpeaking brings a unique combination of accuracy, robust features and a natural, easy to use interface that, in conjunction with SynaMed, delivers real time savings to our customers."
ScanSoft's Dragon NaturallySpeaking provides healthcare technology suppliers and integrators with the ability to speech-enable commercial and in-house PC- and Web-based Healthcare Information Systems (HIS) and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) applications.
