Vocada Integrates Veriphy with Dictaphone PowerScribe from Nuance
CHICAGO - Nuance Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq: NUAN) and Vocada, a provider of technology-based solutions for critical test result management (CTRM), entered an agreement to integrate their products, creating a user interface for radiologists and pathologists to communicate patient findings and report test results.
As a result of the agreement, Vocada's Veriphy will become a component in the Dictaphone PowerScribe dashboard and the two systems will share the same physician directories and database. Using the Veriphy system with Dictaphone PowerScribe, a reporting clinician creates a voice message within PowerScribe which is then automatically passed to the Veriphy system. Instant notifications are then sent to the ordering clinician via pager, cell phone, fax, and e-mail.
Dr. Terry Matalon, chairman of Radiology at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, says the robust integration with PowerScribe will encourage physicians to use Veriphy. "This integration will be an immense aid to PowerScribe users, and ultimately our patients will be the beneficiaries," Dr. Matalon says.
