On-Demand Computer-Aided Medical Transcription


The eScription on-demand, enterprise-wide CAMT platform is an innovative and integrated background speech recognition solution designed to streamline clinical documentation for the large healthcare enterprise, and fully integrate with the EHR.

Intelligent speech recognition software turns clinician dictations into formatted draft documents that medical transcriptionists (MTs) quickly review and edit—often doubling productivity as compared to traditional transcription. The eScription platform is deployed enterprise-wide at healthcare organizations throughout the U.S., and is proven to increase MT productivity, reduce document turnaround time (TAT), and decrease medical transcription costs without interfering with clinician workflow. Healthcare organizations using eScription have saved hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars each year from increased MT productivity.

  • Decreases Costs in medical transcription by increasing the productivity of medical transcriptionists. Healthcare organizations can do more with their in-house resources, reduce or eliminate overflow outsourced work, or decrease the cost of outsourced transcription because it’s faster to edit than to type.
  • Reduces document turnaround time often from days to hours. Faster TAT supports patient care, increases clinician satisfaction, and shortens billing cycles.
  • Improves workflow and quality through streamlined processing of medical records, from dictation/transcription through document distribution and electronic signature.
Best of KLAS 2010 Badge

The eScription platform was the first to pioneer the technology of on-demand computer aided medical transcription and the philosophy that it is faster to edit than to type. Customer satisfaction runs high. The eScription platform has received a "Best-in-KLAS" Award for six consecutive years (2004-2010), ranking #1 in the KLAS market segment "Speech Recognition."

Flexible Dictation Interface
Clinicians have access to a powerful array of keypad controls that allow them to conveniently record, review, and edit dictations by medical record, account or job number.

ASP Architecture
Speech recognition servers are deployed in a secure data center, reducing customers’ upfront costs, simplifying maintenance, and enabling the software to draw upon the combined speech data of all customers to continually improve.

Sophisticated Speech Models
The eScription software rapidly applies multiple speech recognition models to clinicians’ dictations; these models are derived from a database of billions of words of dictation that is still growing.

Interprets and Formats Documents
The software’s powerful Interpretive Model interprets and formats clinicians' dictations, often determining what is meant for the report even if it is not exactly what is said.

No Explicit Clinician Training
When a new system is installed, clinicians dictate as usual and those early dictations are transcribed traditionally while the eScription platform builds speech models behind the scenes.

Learns from MT Corrections
The integrated transcription tools provide automatic, ongoing feedback that allows the background speech recognition to learn and improve.

Supports Voice Macros and Normals
Clinicians who make use of normals in their dictations can use voice macros to automatically insert their pre-defined content.
Secure Internet Access for In-house or Outsourced MTs
eScription provides a secure, internet-based transcription client that provides flexible work options for MTs – at home, at a healthcare facility, or at an MTSO facility whether domestic or offshore.

Productivity Tools for MTs
In addition to leveraging Microsoft Word shortcuts, eScription provides numerous ‘mouse-free’ keystrokes that let MTs quickly move around a document and make necessary changes.

Single Administrative Console
Administrators can manage all components of the eScription platform through a single console, allowing them to easily set up, manage and track the entire workflow from dictation through distribution. Comprehensive management reports help them monitor results and plan for improvement.

Paperless Signing Process
From a list of ‘unsigned’ or deficient records, clinicians can select a document, view the text, listen to the audio, edit the document if necessary, and electronically sign the document, all via a secure online interface.

Distribute Documents Where They Are Needed
The eScription software provides configurable document distribution via print, fax, or email and can be integrated with your organization’s enterprise-wide systems or EMR.


eScription Platform Components

Digital Voice Capture
Clinicians dictate over the telephone or through a digital recording device, and can take advantage of a variety of features that streamline the dictation and transcription workflow.

Background Speech Recognition
The software’s sophisticated speech models interpret and format dictations into high-quality draft documents with the primary goal of significantly improving MT productivity and thereby reducing transcription costs. Based on corrections from MTs, the models continually improve, resulting in better drafts over time.

Transcription Tools
eScription’s transcription tools enable MTs to efficiently edit draft documents, often doubling productivity over traditional transcription. Supervisors use priority rules, audit trails, user access rights, and other features to ensure high quality and fast turnaround time of completed documents.

Clinician Access and Electronic Signature
With eScription, clinicians can securely review, revise, and electronically sign documents from remote locations via the Internet. eScription helps your organization streamline clinician workflow to improve patient care.

Automated Document Distribution
The eScription platform provides automatic, flexible distribution of completed documents through network printers and fax machines at your healthcare facility.

PowerMic™ II

The Microphone that Amplifies Physician Productivity

The Nuance PowerMic™II combines an ergonomic hand microphone with PC mouse functionality to help physicians achieve new levels of dictation speed, ease-of-use and productivity with traditional and speech recognition-based dictation. The Nuance PowerMic II employs simplified single-handed, thumb-controlled operation for dictating, navigating, reviewing and editing speech recognition generated documentation.

  • Improves physician productivity by enabling them to navigate report template fields quickly, then record and use “voice fill-in” capabilities to insert recognized text into report template fields.
  • Accelerates information flow by making it easier and faster to control voice recording, navigate and select fields in on-screen templates and standard reports, and move throughout recognized text reports for review and editing.
  • Increases clinician satisfaction by incorporating full-function, Microsoft® compatible, PC-mouse capabilities into the hand microphone, reducing the need to move continually between the microphone, mouse and keyboard.
