SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ChartLogic, a leading national provider of EHR systems to physician practices, today announced Stella, a new voice recognition clinical documentation module compatible with all leading EHR systems. Stella can greatly speed workflow for surgical specialties such as orthopaedics, ophthalmology and cardiology. In addition, it can help physicians meet the new meaningful use requirements. The new product was introduced at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons annual meeting held in San Diego.
Physicians can purchase Stella as part of the current ChartLogic EHR Suite or as a separate module that can be added as an application overlay to all major EHR systems. Stella enables physicians to use a combination of voice and keyboard commands to quickly record patient data and move from document-to-document and task-to-task. Stella helps physicians capture key data points for meaningful use while allowing the flexibility of a dictated transcript.
“Most voice recognition systems simply translate the spoken word into plain text. With Stella, physicians use voice commands to capture information and move between documents. Stella leverages the speed and ease-of-use of voice dictation, which is the preferred documentation method of many physicians,” said Brad Melis, founder and executive vice president, ChartLogic.
Melis said initial tests at medical groups show Stella enables physicians to complete encounter documentation up to three times faster than if they just used a keyboard and conventional EHR. Stella is web-based and can be accessed via a PC, Mac, iPad or smart phone.
Because Stella can replace current transcriptional services and enable the creation of a continuity of care record (CCR), it can help physicians meet the criteria for meaningful use. The company’s flagship product, the ChartLogic EHR Suite, has earned full (complete system) certification for meaningful use requirements under the standards of the Office of National Coordinator.
