In addition to transcription services, IDS allows clients to integrate front or back-end speech recognition into their reporting processes. As part of a larger report creation toolkit, speech recognition helps providers realize significant results in report output and turnaround times.
With our Voice2Dox Speech Recognition and structured reporting solution, providers use front-end speech recognition to dictate their cases and make the necessary edits prior to electronically signing and distributing their reports. These reports are then archived in AbbaDox, our Web-enabled Workflow Portal, and can be interfaced with any medical management system, as required.
For organizations seeking to eliminate the up-front costs of implementing front-end speech recognition, IDS can provide back-end speech recognition in which dictations are interpreted to produce a draft mode of the report, which is then edited for accuracy by IDS. Completed reports are available in AbbaDox for electronic signature and distribution.
The benefits of front-end and back-end speech recognition include:
- Empowers physicians to reduce the cost of encounter reporting
- Facilitates near-instant turnaround times
- Accelerates the delivery of completed reports to referring physicians and medical record departments
- Low up-front investment
- Flexibility to choose method of reporting
Voice2Dox facilitates user driven reporting workflows so providers can more efficiently create and distribute reports using front-end speech recognition and template-based reports. Voice2Dox users decide before starting a dictation how they want their report created, whether by capturing dictations for Speech Recognition or transcription, producing reports based on physician templates and normal text, or a combination of the two.
In addition, dictations can be interpreted by our front or back-end speech recognition or forwarded as audio recordings to a transcriptionist for typing.
By interfacing with your existing billing and scheduling systems, IDS reduces the entire reporting process to three mouse clicks:
(1) Selecting a normal, (2) Submitting the report and (3) Confirming your electronic signature. Reports are then automatically placed into the fax queue for distribution to the appropriate referring physicians and archived in AbbaDox or the patient information system of your choice.
The features of Voice2Dox include:
- Templates and work types are customized to each doctor’s account
- Instantly mark dictations as STAT for high priority flagging
- Inject blocks of commonly used text, called Snippets, anywhere in a structured report or normal
- Templates have clearly highlighted blanks to enable fast and easy edits
- Dictations can be tagged as addendums to previously completed reports
- Use a single electronic signature for a group of related studies
- Instantly deliver preliminary results prior to the release of the final report
- Report Preview feature allows providers to view their full report in a similar fashion to viewing a document in print preview mode
- Integrated touch-screen capabilities
Enables organizations to migrate to more cost-effective methods without major technology investments or learning curve.
Voice2Dox lets users apply structured reporting as a point-and-click alternative to dictated reporting, enabling radiologists and providers to easily create final reports using any combination of templates, normals and free-typed text.
Templates for each study are customized based on the physician and study modality or procedure type. When a normal is selected an editing window appears in Voice2Dox for viewing and editing the report. Any blanks in the normal are highlighted and can be populated based on pre-determined quantities or manual entry.
In addition to editing normal text, radiologists and providers can dynamically inject paragraphs and normal phrases – called Snippets – from a clipboard of their own commonly used text. Snippets can be viewed prior to insertion, and can be placed anywhere in the structured report.
The structured reporting component of Voice2Dox greatly improves report quality and speed of communication between providers and referring physicians. In addition, because this process bypasses transcription and speech recognition systems, the overall cost of the report is significantly reduced.
