Arrendale Mobile+ Smart Phone Efficiency Now Includes Edit, eSign and Speech Recognition
March 22, 2018
The latest version of Arrendale Associates’ Mobile+ smart phone dictation app now includes a clinician self-editing feature before electronic signature. Arrendale’s clinical documentation suite, Transcript Advantage Plus (TA+), has included mobile dictation since 2015 for both Android and iPhone users. In addition to traditional dictation, the application enables providers to view, edit and eSign notes or transcripts on the device of their choice: iPhones, Android phones, iPads and most Android tablets. Providers appreciate the convenience to dictate securely from any location and then to review draft transcripts created via traditional transcription or via Arrendale’s frontend speech recognition, Speak-EZ+. Mobile+ saves on the purchase of expensive digital recorders and delivers greater functionality than other hands free dictation. When viewing notes on a smart phone or tablet, providers can easily complete their documentation by editing and eSigning the text themselves or by sending a note to their transcriptionist for specific changes. Providers and case workers with multiple offices and those who prefer to eSign at home on their iPad or Android tablet are no longer tied to a desk for editing and signature. Clinicians eliminate the wait time and expense of transcription labor, when utilizing Speak-EZ+ and Dragon workflow in conjunction with Mobile+.
Unlike many mobile dictation apps, your daily clinic schedule or in-bed patient list can be imported and displayed on the Home screen of Arrendale’s app, presenting a list of patients/clients for whom a dictation is needed. Searching for previous notes on the same patient is quick and easy with Mobile+, saving time for clinicians and resulting in better documentation. Front-end speech recognition workflow uses Arrendale’s Speak-EZ+ and Nuance’s Dragon to produce draft transcripts viewable and editable in minutes from your PC or smart phone. Busy caseworkers and providers can document, edit and sign between appointments from any Wifi location. When not in a Wifi area, dictations and eSigned notes remain on the device and are automatically uploaded when Wifi is detected. All transcripts, voice files and patient demographics are encrypted on the device and in transmission. Integrated HIPAA audit logging captures and reports each and every event. For those health systems e-Signing in an EHR, the eSign functionality of Mobile+ can be removed. Mobile+ is available for download from both the Apple App Store and Google Play store by searching under ‘Arrendale Mobile’ and can be purchased from the Arrendale website ‘Shop Now’ store at: www.aaita.com/Shop-Now.
