Functionality and Workflow
Providers of all specialties enhance their productivity by using Speak-EZ+ with Dragon for an improved speech recognition experience. Speak-EZ+ contains standard, medical and pharmaceutical spellcheckers to ensure accuracy with physician transcript editing. Speak-EZ+ includes template customization with site-selected headings. When dictating with Speak-EZ+ at your desk, providers can utilize Dragon voice commands such as “Scratch that” and “Next paragraph” to complete each patient note with narrative detail. Site-wide standard phases, also known as Normals, may be inserted via a drop down list to save time with frequently repeated phases. Speak-EZ+ includes a physician pull down list to specify transcript copy recipients.
Speak-EZ+ may be used in a simple environment without an interface where providers dictate patient identifying details. Speak-EZ+ is also deployed in environments with a demographic and order interface preloading patient variables before each new narrative. Interfaced data can come from an HL7 feed, a PACS xml file transfer or a more basic automated csv file import. Physicians, mental health counselors and nurse practitioners dictate their patient encounters at a Speak-EZ+ and Dragon Windows workstation using a USB-attached mike. Text display is immediate and amazingly accurate. Providers make any needed edits via voice commands and/or keyboard editing then quickly submit and move on to the next patient with a single click. Integrated workflow options include sending jobs for editing by others, in-house or A+Network. A+Network is Arrendale’s transcription service company with US only MTs and 1-24 hour turnaround time.
The TA+ Bundle of Mobile+, Dragon and Speak-EZ+ enables a provider to dictate into the Arrendale Mobile+ app and then to view and edit the converted job at his/her Speak-EZ+ workstation. ‘On the fly’ dictation with speech recognition is also supported with DVR+, our digital voice recorder software. When ready, providers can log into Speak-EZ+ for viewing, editing and e-signature. The Home screen displays job information according to status so that providers can easily locate a needed job, with several sorting options. Speak-EZ+ includes a patient data panel displaying selected data and our specialized toolbar. Users may mark a job as a Stat with a single click, moving that job to the top of the queue if it is sent for completion by others.
