Nuance Offers Direct Voice to Text System to Eliminate Transcription
Nuance Communications' version 8 of its Enterprise Workstation is offered as a documentation workflow add-on for the Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System, allowing physicians the option to dictate, self-correct and electronically sign medical reports in a single step without the need for transcription.
Building on the latest Dragon Medical-based speech recognition technology that powers Nuance’s Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System, an on-premise computer aided medical transcription (CAMT) solution, Enterprise Workstation v8 reportedly introduces significantly-improved front-end speech recognition as a physician alternative to the background-speech-assisted clinical documentation process.
With Enterprise Workstation, physicians can choose to eliminate the traditional clinical documentation process of sending dictations to transcription. Rather, clinicians can use Enterprise Workstation from their desktop or notebook computer to automatically recognize their dictation for real-time documentation, edit and electronic sign-off. Physicians can edit using a keyboard, mouse and standard word processing tools, or with voice editing capabilities can utilize voice commands and microphone controls to navigate the document. Physicians also have the option of hands-free dictation, via a USB headset and foot pedal.
Enterprise Workstation also provides remote connectivity from multiple locations or home for dictation, review and sign-off. Physicians simply open a browser and connect to a Web server to access their profile and speech files.
