(PITTSBURGH) InteGreat, a MED3OOO company that delivers electronic health record (EHR) technologies to physician groups across the United States, recently announced an extension of their partnership with Nuance Communications, Inc., a leading global provider of speech solutions. This agreement expands InteGreat’s existing agreement with Nuance, giving InteGreat the ability to provide its clients with Dragon® Medical 10, the fastest, most accurate, real-time medical speech recognition software released to date.
“The agreement continues our ability to provide leading-edge speech recognition applications for our EHR clients,” said Jay Anders, M.D., MED3OOO Chief Medical Information Officer. “The full version capabilities of Dragon Medical will help our physician clients reduce transcription costs and expand the use of their existing EHRs, while allowing clinical documentation to be in the physician’s own words.”
Dragon Medical 10 is a real-time speech recognition application that provides physicians with the ability to dictate in their own words, generating “once and done” documentation which they can dictate, edit, and review in succession. Dragon Medical can recognize speech with up to 99 percent accuracy out-of-the-box, and includes specialized medical vocabularies covering nearly 80 specialties and subspecialties. By implementing the full version of Dragon Medical 10, IC-Chart clients will be able to use speech recognition, not only within the EHR, but with any of the other Dragon-compatible applications that reside on the desktop.
InteGreat is an industry leader in providing intuitive and easy to use electronic health record and patient portal systems. IC-Chart adapts to clinical workflows with the highest degree of physician acceptance. IC-Chart automates common physician activities, including prescribing tests and medications, capturing charges, ordering lab tests, viewing results, and documenting clinical encounters.
