Stay up to Date With CAP Cancer Checklists

Whether you're CAP accredited or not, you've probably heard of the cancer checklists following the CAP Cancer Protocol Templates. Even outside the United States, Pathology departments are using these checklists; they are considered the "gold standard" for cancer reporting. While previously paper based, the electronic cancer checklists (eCC) now allow for standardized, searchable cancer data to be accessed instantly anywhere in the world.

CAP is continuously improving its protocols, and it can be a challenge for Pathology departments to maintain their electronic versions and keep pace with the changes. That's where we come in. Voicebrook's Structured Results Entry (SRE) module allows Pathologists to use speech recognition to easily and accurately dictate CAP checklists that are 100% CAP compliant. We take care of updates and revisions so you don't have to.

Having been in that position myself as a former grossing technician, I understood the frustration and went back to my team with the challenge of coming up with a solution to address this need.  We evaluated the process the site used to print blocks and developed a set of voice commands to achieve this.

Included below is a video that demonstrates this solution.

URGENT: All VoiceOver Applications will be Unavailable Today

We regret to inform our users that our VoiceOver applications have experienced an unexpected problem and will be unavailable for use today, April 1, 2016. Please revert to your backup method of transcription, and note: you will not be compensated for this disruption of service.

April Fools!! Did I freak you out? If I was in your shoes, responsible for submitting patient results with life or death consequences, I would certainly be freaked out. Luckily, this is just a cruel April Fools Day joke, but let's really think about this. What happens when your main method of reporting goes down?
