PATIENT IS THE WINNER...
"VoiceOver allows me to get away from the mundane task of typing. Having VoiceOver is beneficial as it helps us concentrate on the accuracy of the report and catch potential issues or errors. I save so much time and have better quality control now that VoiceOver was implemented. In the long run, the patient is the winner, and we get to be on top of our game within our healthcare community."
VOICEOVER IS SO MUCH MORE...
"VoiceOver is so much more than just straight dictation, it has given me more control over my reports and what they look like. It has been faster for me to use, since I no longer have to rewind and listen after making a mistake. I can easily read back and apply my changes."
The Valley Hospital
MODIFY THE REPORT IMMEDIATELY..
"VoiceOver has integrated well with our system. It helps with expediting the receipt and turnaround of our reports. We now have the ability to modify the report immediately and independently. The project team was also prompt in addressing all requests for changes."
Michael Nguyen, Staff Pathologist
Verity Health System
IMPROVED THE WAY I WORK...
"The VoiceOver software has exceeded my expectations. It has drastically improved the way I work as the voice commands and templates have made things easier. I am impressed to see how much VoiceOver has improved from just a couple of years ago. Even our residents have mentioned VoiceOver being such a useful tool for them. Recognition is impressive. I have a moderate to heavy accent and I am often surprised when something I say gets transcribed accurately despite my pronunciation."

NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING..
"I feel that Voicebrook has allowed our facility to enter the current century's technology without leaving our people behind. The Voicebrook team was nothing short of amazing."
Jennifer Risner, PA
THE VOICEBROOK TEAM WAS VERY INVOLVED...
"The Voicebrook team was very involved in our daily operations. Their observations and feedback were helpful in improving workflow, accuracy, and time expended on dictation. Clarification of the checklists and verbal cues for dictation with gross were considered very helpful in the usability of VoiceOver. The team had a pleasant personality which made working with them very enjoyable."
Michael Sutula, MD, Pathologist

CAP CONTENT CAN BE EASILY UPDATED...
"VoiceOver and Structured Results Entry (SRE) are easy to use and navigate. With SRE, I especially like being able to toggle on/off comments and notes. CAP content can be easily updated which keeps us in compliance. Overall, SRE is simpler to use than standard CAP checklists. The Voicebrook trainers were very helpful and pleasant. The trainers were willing to stay as long as needed to assist me."
Carla M. Davis, M.D., Pathologist
St. Thomas Hospital
"Using VoiceOver is easier, more efficient, and reduces risk. With our previous solution, I typed or wrote biopsies by hand. I had to pay attention to multiple sections which required careful attention that could be prone to mistakes. With VoiceOver, I can focus on dictation which makes me significantly faster than before.”
Patricia Warfield, Histology Supervisor

THANKFUL FOR THE VOICEBROOK TEAM...
"The Voicebrook team has worked extrememly hard to help meet our needs, and it is greatly appreciated. It is very hard to meet all end user's needs/expectations, but the new workflow has come a long way and is definitely a step in the right direction. I am thankful for the Voicebrook team and their efforts in assisting us.”
Devin Blomquist, Project Manager
North Kansas City Hospital
"Anytime I have called the Voicebrook support number for an issue, the team there has been great! They have been very responsive and quick to help us with our issues and getting them rectified.”

"VoiceOver makes my workflow much easier. I love using voice dictation and navigation. I don't consider myself to be very technical but I am more independent and flexible now as I don't need to rely on transcription. I can't imagine myself working without VoiceOver!”
Maria Dizon, MD, Staff Pathologist
Butler Health System
"I like using VoiceOver much more than traditional transcription. I like that I can see my work and don't have to worry about going back and making corrections later. It can take a bit more time up front, but overall I am more efficient now.”
Steven Peterson, Histotechnologist
"The VoiceOver implementation process/team/attention has been outstanding! After struggling for 3 months - attempting to implement another tool - with very spotty attention from the vendor, we made the switch to Voicebrook. We have been pleased ever since!”
TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE...
"My training session with Voicebrook was amazing! I was especially impressed by the proficiency and the speed of the software in terms of changing the work data into a complete report. I really enjoyed the time spent with my trainer. VoiceOver is too good to be true. I think I will use it for the rest of my practice unless something better comes up from your team.”

SO USER FRIENDLY...
"I previously worked with Voicebrook at Penn Presbyterian Hospital in Philadelphia, PA while in graduate school. It was very easy to pick-up and get rolling quickly, even for someone who was new to grossing (and I was so green at the time, it was my very first surgical rotation!). I love the fact that Voicebrook is so user-friendly"
Emily Loter, PA (ASCP)
Pathology Sciences Medical Group
EXECUTION WAS FANTASTIC...
"I have implemented many systems in the past and I would rate Voicebrook's implementation very highly. The project plan is well thought out and the project's execution was fantastic. Voicebrook's implementation team is very knowledgeable and the support staff works diligently to resolve any post go live issues. Overall, it was one of the better implementations I've experienced."

NO TIME AT ALL...
"I had a letter of consultation to write, which normally I have to set aside time to do. With VoiceOver, I quickly dictated the letter, and it took no time at all.”
Janet Woodroof, MD
University of Kansas Medical Center
GREAT FLEXIBLE SOFTWARE...
"It's a great and flexible software. I love the template formatting (create your own). Voice/word training and re-training is a helpful feature. Our turnaround time has decreased. The support staff is always available, and very professional.”
Syed Zaidi, MD

UP-TO-DATE AND MORE ATTRACTIVE CAP CHECKLISTS...
"I have been very pleased with Voicebrook’s new Structured Results Entry for creating the CAP-required checklists on cancer cases. Since the requirements are constantly changing, it guarantees that I’m always up to date. It also streamlines the process as much as possible by reducing duplication and inappropriate items. I’ve found the Voicebrook staff very receptive to suggestions about fixes when I’ve found a problem, and we’ve improved some of the checklists as a result. The end result is much more attractive than anything one could create for the on-line CAP checklists, and the user has complete editing control. I highly recommend this product to any busy pathologist who is attempting to follow the CAP regulations on cancer reporting."
Thomas J. Reed, Pathologist
USE THIS INSTEAD OF TYPING...
"VoiceOver is convenient when the residents haven't already entered the report; I can use this instead of typing."

SUPPORT TEAM IS ONE OF THE BEST...
"Your support team is one of the best I have worked with and they are always quick to respond”
Mary Sue Smith
The Ottawa Hospital, Department of Pathology
SUPPORT HAS BEEN PHENOMENAL...
"Even before we officially signed on as a client, Voicebrook resources were very quick to respond to any and all questions regarding their product and its implementation needs. This didn’t stop once we signed the contract.
Project management and supportive documentation was stellar. Implementation specialists assigned to our site went above and beyond the call of duty to make the product fit our varying workflows. Their knowledge of their own product and of our LIS (Cerner Millennium) allowed them to optimize workflows, and this was not limited to steps where text was entered.
During and post implementation, their support has been phenomenal. Change is hard, but Voicebrook made it easier.”
Boston Children's Hospital, Department of Pathology
SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED LABORATORY WORKFLOW...
"The implementation of VoiceOver® at NYU Surgical Pathology was a huge undertaking. We needed a system that would help us navigate within and between PowerPath (AP) and Omnitrax (specimen tracking). The Voicebrook team left no stone unturned. They looked at every step of specimen accessioning, grossing, microscopic diagnosis and case sign-out processes, and created an integration that significantly improved pathologists and staff's daily workflow. Examples include, automatic insertion of specimen name and procedure, and Pathologists' names into reports. This is just reflection of a very small part of the contribution made by Voicebrook."
Ming Zhou, MD, PhD
Director, Surgical Pathology and Urologic Pathology
NYU Medical Center Tisch Hospital
VOICEBROOK MADE OUR MEDITECH UPGRADE WORTHWHILE...
"While testing for an LIS upgrade, I contacted Voicebrook because of issues I was having with our LIS, MEDITECH. Voicebrook took this opportunity to review our workflow and investigate how our implementation of VoiceOver® could be enhanced in conjunction with our LIS upgrade. They quickly identified opportunities for optimization and offered solutions to streamline our process. The new workflow enhancements were implemented and our MEDITECH upgrade was soon met with enthusiasm by our pathologists. Voicebrook made our system upgrade worthwhile."
Christopher J. Abrenica

SOFTWARE DOES NOT TAKE VACATIONS...
"Voice recognition software has come a long way since my department first employed it in 1997. Current software applications provide extremely accurate transcription comparable to the best transcribers, and the Voicebrook application fits perfectly into the regular workflow of the department and our Cerner Millennium LIS.
Beyond the obvious benefits of having dictated text immediately available for review, with direct impact on turnaround time, voice recognition software does not take vacations, does not require sick time, and willingly works nights and weekends when required. The economic benefit is substantial, and in our case, we have not had a medical transcriber on payroll since 1997. Just as no pathologist can contemplate a future without a pathology computer system, I cannot contemplate a future without voice recognition software, and the applications are only getting better."
Dr. Paul E. Kalish, Medical Director
NSLIJHS Laboratories - Glen Cove Hospital
Chairman - Department of Pathology
ADAPTED TO IT VERY WELL...
"Our department's been successful in getting a number of people who were initially resistant to it up and running, and they've done very well on it. We had a pathologist in his late 70's who came in and was doing temporary work. He was very hesitant when we first started, but we spent some time with him and he became a big convert to the system, and he actually adapted to it very well."
Dr. Steven Drexler, Anatomic Pathologist, Neuropathologist
Winthrop University Hospital
MADE OUR WORK SO VERY EASY...
"We have data from many months now showing that this has improved our turnaround time, made our work so very easy, and stopped the hurry-up- and-wait situation that we used to be in earlier with transcription.
VoiceOver® has had a huge positive impact on our training program for the resident, because now the residents can themselves dictate reports into the LIS before they even come to the pathologists. When they sit with their attending pathologist to look at the slides, they can now see what changes the pathologist is making to the report in real time, and they can be part of the entire process, from dictation of gross descriptions to sign-out."
