Get Pathology Residents up and Running on VoiceOver (Re-post)

It's March, and that means Spring is on the way. Before we know it, Summer will follow and new residents will be reporting to academic facilities across the nation. It's not too early to start thinking about them.

Thinking About Speech Recognition? Get Users Involved Early

Technology changes in the lab can be sparked by any number of catalysts.  For instance, a PA hears from a friend about a new speech recognition system and brings it up to her manager and next thing you know VoiceOver is being installed.  Other times, Pathologists are looking for ways to have more control over their reports as well as the ability to sign things out without waiting for transcription.  Still other times, administration is looking for a way to save money, and they choose to bring in new technology to accomplish this goal.   While we do pride ourselves on helping our customers to save money, that specific reason for bringing in the VoiceOver solution is what can lead to trouble.

The Pathology Residents Are Coming...Eight Steps to VoiceOver Success

Prior to working at Voicebrook I was a Forensic Autopsy Assistant at an academic facility. I will always remember getting the catalogue of new residents each June. I also very much looked forward to the first year residents coming in for their first autopsy and trying to gross them out . . . but I digress. Since working at Voicebrook I have a whole new view on what many call ‘Resident Season’. I have now had my eyes opened to the administrative side of things and all of the time and effort that goes into getting residents trained and ready to be functional. From my conversations with our clients I have learned about the following steps taken to get a new resident up and running:
