Voicebrook® Demonstrates Integrated Speech Recognition with Per-Se at TEPR 2003

Per-Se, an award-winning healthcare software supplier, will show integrated speech recognition solutions powered by Voicebrook® at TEPR 2003, May 12-14, San Antonio, TX.

Lake Success, NY, May 5, 2003
-- For years, speech recognition technology has been used to complement or replace manual processes in transcription-heavy areas (radiology, cardiology, etc.). Now, speech recognition can be employed more broadly, taking advantage of hardware/software improvements, enhanced speed and accuracy to provide a speech interface for care providers. A key factor enabling speech as a clinical tool is tight integration with the source system, avoiding additional processes and interfaces.

"Speech recognition has been proven as a means for healthcare enterprises to realize significant cost and time savings for transcription-heavy functions," said Ross Weinstein, Voicebrook® CEO.. "Progressive healthcare organizations can use the same underlying technology to provide a more natural system interface to care providers in a variety of clinical settings. We are hearing from our customers that adoption of speech recognition technology has been a major factor in clinicians' acceptance of new systems, and has encouraged more comprehensive documentation, providing benefits to both patients and to the hospital's bottom line."

At TEPR 2003, Voicebrook® will demonstrate the use of speech recognition, integrated directly with Per-Se's electronic medical record (EMR), highlighting additional productivity features, including templating, voice macros and normal observations. Voicebrook's speech recognition solutions are in production in a number of hospitals running Patient1, and will be available on Per-Se's new platform, VISTA, shortly.
