Interact efficiently with your EMR.
The move toward computerized patient records is well underway. Many medical practices have already implemented Electronic Medical Record systems, only to find that their mouse and keyboard-driven approach to data entry slows down the input of patient notes.
VocaLinks Inc. offers a number of dictation solutions that can help you enter narrative information into your medical records with a minimal amount of typing and speed up navigation between different data entry screens in your EMR through the use of voice commands.
Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 for Windows uses speech recognition for both data entry and on-screen navigation – and it is designed to work with almost any EMR system. For Mac users, Dragon for Mac Medical v5 offers the same choice of medical specialty vocabularies as the Windows edition.
We offer a range of specialized microphones to address your dictation needs. These include noise-cancelling headset microphones for use in noisy workplaces, handheld microphones with programmable buttons to help automate repetitive EMR tasks, desktop microphones for hands-free dictation, and wireless microphones for use with lightweight tablet PCs.
Mobile Dictation Solutions such as Philips DPM8000 Digital Recorders and the Philips Recorder App for iPhone, BlackBerry and Android devices allow detailed notes to be captured almost anywhere and relayed back to the office for transcription.
Our superior training and support helps you get the most from your dictation solution with a minimum of disruption to your normal routine. Our dictation experts can install and configure the dictation software and hardware and work with you and your office staff to get you working productively with the dictation tools as quickly as possible. We can also assist you in identifying repetitive computing tasks and help you to automate them with custom voice commands. We offer ongoing support as well, both onsite and online, to keep your dictation solution running as smoothly and accurately as possible from day to day.
By combining these offerings in a way that best suits your practice, VocaLinks can help you:
Improve care efficiency. Dragon Medical Practice Edition 4 for Windows offers virtually instant response time, saving clinicians valuable minutes in their day – no more waiting for transcribed reports or needing to type into their EMRs.
Reduce transcription and the cost of documentation. Using speech recognition technology and automated transcription of recorded dictation, you can dictate, edit and sign medical records at the point of care, eliminating as much as $12,000 in annual transcription costs.
Spend more time with patients. Increased accuracy means fewer errors to correct, which lets clinicians spend more time with patients, improving both quality of care and patient satisfaction.
Improve documentation. Documentation with Dragon Medical speech recognition technology – as opposed to notes built by point-and-click EMR templates alone – results in higher rates of reimbursement.
Improve physician satisfaction. By making daily reporting tasks less of an ordeal, VocaLinks helps physicians look forward to practicing medicine – and getting home in time for dinner.
Increase reimbursement. By allowing more detailed documentation to be prepared for billing purposes, VocaLinks dictation solutions can increase per-physician reimbursement by as much as $10,000 per year per physician.
