Voicebrook Demonstrates Integrated Speech Recognition with Per-Se
LAKE SUCCESS, NY - At TEPR 2003, Voicebrook will demonstrate the use of speech recognition, integrated directly with Per-Se's electronic medical record (EMR), highlighting additional productivity features, including templating, voice macros and normal observations. Voicebrook's speech recognition solutions are in production in a number of hospitals running Patient1. "Speech recognition has been proven as a means for healthcare enterprises to realize significant cost and time savings for transcription-heavy functions," said Ross Weinstein, Voicebrook CEO. "Progressive healthcare organizations can use the same underlying technology to provide a more natural system interface to care providers in a variety of clinical settings. We are hearing from our customers that adoption of speech recognition technology has been a major factor in clinicians' acceptance of new systems, and has encouraged more comprehensive documentation, providing benefits to both patients and to the hospital's bottom line." For years, speech recognition technology has been used to complement or replace manual processes in transcription-heavy areas (radiology, cardiology, etc.). Now, speech recognition can be employed more broadly, taking advantage of hardware/software improvements, enhanced speed and accuracy to provide a speech interface for care providers. A key factor enabling speech as a clinical tool is tight integration with the source system, avoiding additional processes and interfaces.
