With Dictaphone's Digital Dictation solution, you can easily record your medical reports using your telephone, mobile, PDA, PC or any other recording device.

Your recording(s) will then be automatically sent to your assistant to be transcribed and returned to you for final review and sign off.

Alternatively, using Dictaphone's real-time voice recognition software (Dragon Naturally Speaking Medical), you can create reports on the fly by simply dictating your report directly to your PC, editing it and signing it off.

This effective and error-free process will save you valuable time, cost and effort that are normally associated with generating medical documentation the traditional way.

It will also ensure that all your medical records are properly and accurately documented.

You will be able to store and archive all your medical records digitally creating a paper-free environment which saves you precious storage space and gives you easy access to your patients' medical history.

Our solution is compatible with most platforms in the industry, and using HL7 standards, we can integrate with any existing IT infrastructure.

The technology is here and ready. Are you?

Overview

Healthcare organizations have used electronic medical record (EMRs) software with some degree of success for many years now.

The one, major downside to EMRs, however, is the need to create the records manually through the use of a transcriptionist. Unfortunately, transcription is a slow and costly process - one that has cost healthcare organizations a substantial amount of money and time on manual transcription services. In fact, a single physician often spends as much as $25,000 per year to digitize patient information.

In other words, any money that a healthcare organization saves using an EMR is often negated due to the high cost of transcription services.

In addition, the slow process of transcription is also a burden on healthcare organizations which often require a faster turnaround time regarding their records.

Say Goodbye To Cassettes

There are no tapes or data lost because of damaged cassettes. Automated and archived backups mean dictations are secure and easy to find.

Great Sound Quality   

With their excellent quality, digital sound files mean speedier transcription, fewer errors and faster document processing. And transcriptionists can use the same workflow used for analog files with standard foot controls and headsets.

Archiving That’s Simple And Secure

Automatically saved in archive folders, digital dictation files require little space and are easy to find and access whenever they’re needed. Plus you free up filing cabinet and shelf space required for paper transcripts and records.

Easily Send Jobs Via Your Network   

With digital dictation, your existing office network becomes a superfast, super efficient distribution network. Dictation files can be easily sent back and forth from creator to transcriptionist over the network or using email. And they’re just as easy to send when you’re away from the office.

Easy Prioritization   

With the electronic jobs list, transcriptionists can quickly see new and ongoing jobs and which are most urgent and need immediate attention. And jobs are easy to prioritize with just one click.

Confidentiality Ensured

Encrypted passwords protect files with confidential and sensitive access from unauthorized access and are saved in protected folders designated for confidential information.

Job Lists

With clear and easy to follow jobs lists, transcribers can quickly see new and ongoing jobs and information such as length and date of dictation, letting them prioritize jobs by date or available transcription time.
