The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2015-04-17T01:10:20Z Winscribe Quick Speech Recognition Enhances EMR Usability and Provides Speech-Enabled Documentation for Physicians 2015-04-17T01:10:20Z winscribe-quick-speech-recognition-enhances-emr-usability-and-provides-speech-enabled-documentation-for-physicians Winscribe is pleased to announce the release of Winscribe Quick Speech Recognition (QSR), a powerful and easy-to-use front-end speech recognition solution, to their portfolio of speech productivity and medical documentation management software solutions for healthcare professionals.  Winscribe QSR makes EMR data entry faster and easier, and it enables physicians and other healthcare professionals to quickly create documentation, craft emails, enter data into Health Information Systems (HIS), and communicate with co-workers and patients more efficiently. With the ever-increasing implementation of Electronic Medical Record (EMR) systems into hospitals, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), clinics, private practices, and insurance providers, these systems continue to garner attention and speculation regarding their usability, the negative effects on physician productivity, and the loss of time available for patients.  Speech recognition, on the other hand, has gained recent attention as a proven method for improving EMR usability, reducing documentation costs and boosting the productivity levels of physicians and other medical staff.  The release of Winscribe QSR is no exception. Winscribe QSR offers real-time, front-end speech recognition technology that is remarkably accurate and has a low edit rate, enabling clinicians to quickly perform data entry and generate other documentation with confidence.  Winscribe QSR has an intuitive interface and is easy-to-use.  With just a few minutes of training, Winscribe QSR clients can take advantage of immediate productivity gains.  Physicians simply dictate, review and insert the recognized text, and then they are ready to move to the next field or task. Winscribe QSR supports general and medical-specific vocabularies, which further enhance the accuracy of recognized text.  Winscribe QSR’s ‘snippet’ functionality also makes it simple to create macros and templates that providers can initiate with a unique voice command to insert commonly used phrases, such as discharge instructions, risk and benefit statements, and normal findings. Winscribe QSR’s management console further helps it stand out against competitive offerings.  The system has a centralized and intelligent management console that can ‘learn’ and manage new words, phrases and user profiles, based on pre-existing group knowledge.  From an administration point of view, is much lighter on IT resources, making management a breeze. Winscribe QSR basically serves as a keyboard replacement that is adaptable and works with existing applications and any information systems that allow typed text entry, including Microsoft Office applications, Web browsers, and Health Information Systems – to name a few.  In addition, Winscribe QSR works with virtually any EMR. By incorporating Winscribe QSR, healthcare organizations can: Reduce time and costs associated with medical transcription Improve physicians’ clinical documentation productivity Generate more accurate and thorough narratives, clinical notes and other documentation Improve patient care through more complete documentation and faster result turnaround “Winscribe QSR provides physicians and other medical staff the opportunity to reduce time spent on data entry, while increasing the quality of documentation and freeing physician time to focus on their patients,” said Pierre Corboz, Director of Product Strategy at Winscribe. “Advanced voice recognition and speech understanding solutions, like Winscribe QSR, allow documentation and reporting processes to become fully speech-enabled, which not only elevates the level of report quality, but it also eliminates unnecessary transcription steps. With turnaround time being a major concern for every healthcare organization, intelligent tools like Winscribe QSR can have a huge impact on productivity and service delivery.” QSR joins Winscribe’s suite of speech productivity solutions, which include enterprise-level medical documentation management, digital dictation, speech recognition workflow management, transcription, and mobile speech technology software solutions.  To learn more about Winscribe QSR and Winscribe’s full suite of speech productivity and workflow management solutions, please visitwww.winscribe.com.      - ENDS – Winscribe Announces the Appointment of Florian Stroehle as Director of Global Sales 2015-04-01T00:56:47Z winscribe-announces-the-appointment-of-florian-stroehle-as-director-of-global-sales Winscribe is pleased to announce Florian Stroehle as Winscribe's new Director of Global Sales.

Winscribe Delivers Speech-Enabled Documentation for Lawyers with Winscribe Quick Speech Recognition 2015-03-11T22:45:09Z winscribe-delivers-speech-enabled-documentation-for-lawyers-with-winscribe-quick-speech-recognition Winscribe announces the addition of Winscribe Quick Speech Recognition (QSR), a standalone front-end speech recognition solution, to their portfolio of speech productivity software.  Winscribe QSR empowers lawyers to use their voice to quickly and easily create documentation, craft emails, enter data into third-party applications, and communicate with clients faster, less expensively, and more efficiently.  Documentation is an essential function in law firms and legal departments, but traditional methods can be time consuming and expensive.  Besides, most lawyers are skilled speakers and – based on industry averages – can talk nearly ten times faster than they can type.  With this in mind, Winscribe developed Winscribe Quick Speech Recognition (QSR), an easy-to-use standalone speech recognition software solution that types as a lawyer talks.  What more could a busy lawyer want? Today, lawyers tend to support themselves and often do not have a personal assistant at arm’s reach. Winscribe QSR helps to serve as a lawyer’s personal assistant, by reducing or even eliminating the need for manual transcription of notes, directions, and documents. Law firms are increasingly seeing the usefulness of voice-to-text technology as a way to improve the speed and accuracy of communications, documentation, and data entry.  In fact, ILTA’s 2014 Technology Survey reported that 62 percent of firms are using some form of speech recognition technology, which has risen by nearly 20 points in the last four years. “Busy legal professionals must maximize their productive time and need robust tools that help them work faster and don’t require a time intensive investment for getting started.  Winscribe QSR has an intuitive interface, is easy-to-use, and delivers exceptional speech recognition accuracy.  With just a few minutes of training, Winscribe QSR clients can take advantage of immediate productivity gains.  Authors simply place the QSR cursor into a field, dictate, review the recognized text, and sign off the result to move to the next field or task,” explains Pierre Corboz, Director of Product Strategy at Winscribe. The release of Winscribe QSR offers real-time, front-end speech recognition technology that is remarkably accurate and has a low edit rate, enabling legal professionals to quickly generate documentation with confidence.  It also supports general and legal-specific vocabularies.  Plus, it has a centralized and intelligent management console that can ‘learn’ and manage new words, phrases and user profiles.   Winscribe QSR is adaptable and works with existing applications and information systems that allow typed text entry, including Microsoft Office applications, Web browsers, and Practice Management Systems – to name a few.  QSR joins Winscribe’s suite of speech productivity solutions, which include enterprise-level digital dictation workflow management, speech recognition workflow management, transcription, and mobile speech technology software solutions.  To learn more about Winscribe's Speech Recognition Suite, including Winscribe QSR, please visit http://www.winscribe.com/speech-technology/speech-recognition and contact us.
