March 7, 2008 - MedQuist Inc. is offering a new, Web-based version of its mobile dictation application PhysAssist IQ, which gives physicians more flexibility over documenting at the point of care using mobile devices including flip phones, Smartphones, PDAs and Tablet PCs.
Using Internet-enabled mobile devices to dictate allows caregivers to document patient encounters anytime, anywhere. The voice file is automatically and securely uploaded to MedQuist’s Enterprise Platform to complete the document creation workflow.
The company says other key features and benefits of PhysAssist IQ include easy navigation, for use with a stylus or finger; from a pick list the physician gets detailed patient demographics, location, and rounding information including labs, medications, and all types of reports; reduced telecom costs in the transcription process; and leverage of both WiFi and cellular broadband networks, allowing caregivers to stay connected to clinical information at all times, across all care settings.
The company says bringing dictation to wireless phones will enable caregivers to streamline their documentation processes, reduce costs and drive revenue while eliminating unnecessary steps in their documentation workflow.
