TWICE AS FAST...
"Before we implemented VoiceOver PRO, I was actually typing up my own reports. Our transcriptionists were so overworked that it was simply faster to just do it myself. Now that I'm using PRO's structured templates, I'm not constantly turning back and forth from my microscope to my computer. That means I'm able to work twice as fast, doubling my output volume! I had never worked on a dictation system like this before, but after training just a few words, I can say that the speech recognition works well. I've been very pleased."
Mary Barrett, MD
IT'S LIKE THE IPHONE... IT'S JUST INCREDIBLE
"PRO is just incredible. I never thought I'd see this type of technology. It's like the iPhone... it's just incredible."
Dr. Harry Kamerow
Mount Nittany Medical Center
IMMEDIATE TURNAROUND TIME...
"With PRO there is an immediate turnaround time, especially for our GI biopsies. We only have one transcriptionist and on any given day 2-3 pathologists dictating cases. In the past, we needed to wait until our transcriptionist could get to our cases. With PRO we can sign them out immediately! The application is flexible and we are working on creating additional commands to save even more time!"
Osama Abdelatif MD, Pathologist

NIGHT AND DAY DIFFERENCE...
"The transition to VoiceOver PRO was very smooth. My reports look cleaner, and the formatting works well. The interface is much more snappy and intuitive, and I'm impressed by the power of the dynamic templates. In particular, the built-in synoptic reports have been very helpful. With PRO, my productivity is much better, and I'm about 15% faster. When it comes to speech recognition, I'm pleased. I have used Dragon in the past, but PRO is a night and day difference"
Charles Kovach, MD, Pathologist

SAVE AN HOUR OR MORE...
"With VoiceOver PRO I am able to save an hour or more per day which has maximized my efficiency. PRO is also very user-friendly and intuitive to use. I am very happy using VoiceOver PRO"
Carolyn Haus, MD
CHANGE DID NOT AFFECT THE PATHOLOGISTS...
"Without VoiceOver, our users would be doing a lot of clicking, scrolling, and typing to complete their cases. It's significantly faster to use voice commands and dictation. The templates and CAP checklists are the most helpful features. They keep us consistent and compliant with our reports. Our recent Cerner upgrade significantly changed the look of our pathology report application. Fortunately, this change did not affect the pathologists because they were able to use the same voice commands to enter case results and interface with the upgraded system. The Voicebrook support team is always great to work with!"
BETTER THAN PREVIOUS INTEGRATION...
"The VoiceOver integration with Epic has worked extremely well. Voicebrook is the expert in Pathology speech recognition and I don't think we would be this successful with any other voice recognition software. The resources Voicebrook provided were great, they worked closely with our Pathologists and PAs to develop a system very similar to, or better than the previous integration. The staff who use VoiceOver are very happy, as well as management, with the many improvements since implementing VoiceOver."
Laura Galiotto, Manager of Anatomic Pathology Northwest Community Hospital
"VoiceOver PRO has sped up my productivity. The system makes it easier for me to complete my reports. Templates are great and I like the structure!"

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
Director of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
Medstar Harbor Hospital
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
MedStar Montgomery Medical Center
"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.”
Gloria Lightner, MT
Laboratory Informatics Coordinator
MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center
"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."

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
Clinical Applications Analyst
Lawrence Hospital Center Laboratory
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

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."
