The Brooklyn Hospital Center to increase efficiency with VoiceOver®, becoming the 400th site to acquire the only speech recognition based reporting solution tailored specifically to Pathology
Lake Success, NY, August 15
)-- Voicebrook announces the 400th site to acquire
its VoiceOver® Pathology reporting solution. The Brooklyn Hospital Center (TBHC), a 464 bed community hospital that serves nearly 300,000 patient visits annually, will go live in the Fall
of 2016. The initiative will be
led by Mary Beddoe, TBHC's Pathology and
Ms. Beddoe is a Six Sigma Black Belt with a deep expertise in laboratory workflow. Before moving to TBHC, she had the unique opportunity of building a Pathology department from the ground up. At her previous job, she designed everything from the Pathology processes to the physical layout of the lab with an eye for eliminating unnecessary steps and reducing the time needed to get reports back to patients. VoiceOver was an integral part of this strategy, allowing for real time reporting without the need for transcriptionists. Templates, voice commands, and specialized input devices also significantly reduced non value-added steps that would otherwise be repeated several times throughout the day.
When she started at TBHC, Ms. Beddoe immediately knew she wanted to bring in VoiceOver. "The lean principles evident in Voicebrook's product made it an easy choice," she said.
Before VoiceOver, the Pathology department at TBHC relied on a combination of typing, hand written notations, and transcription. With Voicebrook's speech recognition based reporting solution, reports will be filled out as cases are being processed through the lab. It will no longer be necessary for clerks to waste time transcribing. Annotations and corrections can be made immediately with voice commands, and Pathologists can greatly reduce the time patients must wait for a diagnosis.
Speed won't be the only benefit. "Besides realized process improvements," said Ms. Beddoe, "quality will be enhanced. When case findings are reviewed in real time versus waiting for transcription, the potential for error is reduced."
"The Brooklyn Hospital Center's Pathology department continues to grow in the number of cases year to year," she added. "With the Voicebrook product, the department can better manage growth in a cost effective manner and provide a higher level of quality to the patients and physicians we serve."
