At the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) annual conference, Dolbey introduces a new solution to assist physicians in using the Electronic Medical Record (EMR).

A major part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), was a massive implementation of the EMR in healthcare. The implementation of the EMR brought change to the care and documentation routines of many physicians as they attempt to concisely record a patient’s care in the tiny boxes on a computer screen.

To avoid the job of keyboarding, many physicians turned to speech recognition technology that automatically types what they say into the narrative boxes of the EMR. Although speech recognition works for some, many have had trouble adapting to this new technology while others face the hurdles of incompatibility between their EMR and the requirements of the speech recognition software.

VoiceBox™ is a non-intrusive, recording application that provides the physician with the ability to simply speak the description of the patient event. VoiceBox automatically bookmarks the field in the EMR with a unique VoiceBox ID. Later a typist pairs the recording and subsequent transcription into the EMR box. This easy-to-use solution keeps the patient story accurate without physicians learning the skill of keyboarding or facing the challenges of speech recognition.

“We have been involved with healthcare dictation since our beginning in 1914. Never before have physician missed the ease and accuracy of dictation and transcription in documenting a patient encounter,” says Chris Casto, Vice-President of Dolbey Systems, Inc. “Now, with VoiceBox, our customers can meet their EMR requirements while enjoying the accuracy and simplicity of dictation.”
