What is Medical Speech Recognition?
Medical Speech Recognition (MSR) is any technology that allows you to speak what you want to type. The dictation that you speak appears right on the screen.
How is Medical Speech Recognition used?
MSR is installed as a third party add on for EHR. The MSR integrates into the system and converts spoken word into text on the screen. Shortkey commands also integrate into the EHR. This facilitates the movement between text boxes, pages and screens.
Speech recognition technology is a technology that can learn words and phrases. This is a must for the medical industry. Once a word is in the system, a clinician never has to worry about misspelling the term. This is often done by accident.
What benefits does it provide?
- Reducing the number of clicks when dealing with an EHR reduces the number of errors. It also reduces the amount of time that is spent dictating.
- Clinicians can create, document, edit and sign electronic documents at the same time.
- Documents no longer have to be transcribed or reworded in order to send records to another office. This is an important advantage if a patient must be transferred.
- The notes created from MSR are much more detailed and comprehensive. This gives the office an opportunity to increase reimbursement.
- Clinicians can focus more on patient care. More time at the bedside means a more detailed assessment and diagnosis of problems.
- Yes. MSR has many advantages when used in electronic medical records keeping, including the following:
- Cuts back on dictation time
- Cuts down on typing errors and automates spellcheck in real time
- Decreases the cost of transcription
- Automates common phrases
- Adds the nuance of the spoken word to the patient story
- Imports records directly into an EHR
Most importantly, the featured characteristics of the MSR solution allows clinicians more time to focus on patient care. Clinicians spend less time dictating and create more accurate notes. As a result, the patient receives a much better overall experience. Notes are also immediately available for upload into a centralized system or to precede a patient transfer.
