News from a technology that is transforming healthcare practice typically of interest to healthcare practitioners and IT professionals, this blog’s objective is to help you get a better understanding and answer some questions you may have on speech recognition technology applied to health record management – as opposed to off-the-shelf, consumer software; a different market altogether.
About the Authors
This blog was started by Claire Betis on July 11, 2007 as a modest – though hopefully useful – way to share news, ideas and best practices on speech recognition system implementations in healthcare environments. As a Marketing Manager for Crescendo Systems Corp. from 2004 to 2008, Claire has worked with many healthcare organizations to promote their respective – and usually tremendous – achievements in the area of medical records management through the proper use and integration of dictation, transcription and workflow management technologies. But when she first joined the industry in 2004, speech recognition had very few fans and a rather skeptical crowd among physicians. Speech recognition had been promising a brighter world for medical documentation since the 1980s but had systematically failed in delivering on its promises, leading healthcare facilities from a state of disillusionment to another.
