Description

Functionality and Workflow

Mobile+ is a convenient, reliable dictation app for cell phones and tablets with intuitive screen displays. The History screen lists jobs by sent date and the e-Sign screen enables rapid transcript signing after viewing on the device. Dictation modes include Record, Stop, Rewind, Fast Forward, Insert and Overwrite actions. No training sessions are required; our Quick Start Guide directs new Mobile+ users through the straightforward screens. With the addition of Arrendale’s Speak-EZ+ and Nuance’s Dragon MPE2, providers gain speech recognition efficiency, see the TA+ Bundle description.

Mobile+ is utilized by:

  1. Sites receiving patient data from a daily schedule or an HL7 interface feed
  2. Sites when no interface to patient data exists

Providers using the Mobile+ app without an interface create Free Form dictations, narrating patient meta data for each encounter.
When an interface populates Mobile+, the Home screen assists providers by displaying a daily list from your scheduling system or host EHR. Either way, voice files from Mobile+ are sent to the TA+ server for your choice of document creation via:

  1. Facility transcriptionists
  2. A+Network transcription outsourcing
  3. Speech recognition with the TA+ Bundle
  4. Combinations of the above.

Special Features

Mobile+ includes a Stat button to prioritize a job ahead of other dictations. Mobile+ contains a Save Incomplete status for storing partial narratives for completion later. Mobile+’s Advanced Search enables providers to locate and view previously archived transcripts from the remote TA+ server. With Mobile+ providers may create multiple dictations on the same patient throughout the day. When an interface exists, the Mobile+ Home screen color codes each patient on the daily list, alerting providers which patient notes have or have not been completed. Mobile+ allows providers to send a note to the transcription staff when changes are needed before e-Signing. All dictations from Mobile+ are sent as smart phone files, producing higher clarity for more accurate documentation. When providers dictate into a smart phone by dialing a dictation system the results often include static, cut off words and poor audio quality; Mobile+ eliminates these problems. Mobile+ benefits physician practices, hospitals and single providers and others needing to dictate ‘On the Go’.

Security

Mobile+ includes HIPAA safeguards throughout the app protecting all patient data, transcripts and dictation voice files. Passwords are required for all functionality. Manual log offs and forced log offs due to inactivity remove all data, transcripts and dictations from the device. All transmissions are secure with HTTPS and SSL encryption via wireless networks rather than using cell phone minutes.

Why Mobile+ Over Landline Traditional Dictation

  • Selecting a patient from a list and dictating immediately with Mobile+ is faster than listening and replying to dictation system prompts
  • The voice file quality of Mobile + is much clearer than landline voice files
  • Mobile+ incorporates big cost savings when using the TA+ Bundle of Mobile+, Speak-EZ+ and Dragon
  • Providers can access historical transcripts from their device while on the go
  • Mobile+ does not use your cell phone minutes
