December 15, 2008 - Nuance Communications Inc. said today that more than 100 healthcare customers are using background speech recognition with Nuance’s on-premise Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System.
Nuance said the top 25 Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System customers are processing 86 percent of their transcription volume with speech recognition and are realizing productivity rates that are 98 percent above the industry average. Additionally, top performing MTs at Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System sites are producing 180 percent beyond industry standards, according to the company.
The Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System Version 7.5 is designed for on-premise transcription, enterprise-wide, multi-specialty use and allows physicians to dictate in the traditional way, while speech recognition technology translates their dictation into a highly accurate, formatted draft document for transcriptionist review and edit. The company said this approach avoids the more time-consuming and costly process of transcribing reports from scratch.
Dictaphone Enterprise Speech System 7.5 introduces an enhanced transcription software application that further improves MT productivity and makes the transition from typing to editing easy and fast. Additional updates include new support for Microsoft Office 2007, Windows Vista operating system and Microsoft SQL Server 2005. The new solution has been tested and qualified for use in a virtualized environment running VMware, to enable customers to more effectively deploy and support Nuance’s Dictaphone Enterprise Speech Systems within their IT infrastructure, said the company.
