Amerinet signs up SpeechQ to provide RIS solution

MedQuist : 20 June, 2007  (New Product)
Amerinet , one of the USA's largest group purchasing organizations, has signed a long term contract with MedQuist for the company's SpeechQ for Radiology speech recognition software.
The agreement was awarded for three years beginning on 1 June 2007.
Amerinet serves more than 22,000 acute and non-acute healthcare providers nationwide across the USA.

According to John Sutton, senior contracting manager, Diagnostic Imaging, 'Amerinet has a comprehensive programme of healthcare informatics, including PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication Systems) and other technologies.

'SpeechQ will be a valuable addition as we continue to build our technology portfolio.

'I look forward to working with the MedQuist team to ensure the delivery of true value and cost savings to all Amerinet members'.

Powered by the Philips SpeechMagic speech engine, SpeechQ for Radiology integrates with most radiology specific information systems and PACS, and was rated number one for front-end Speech recognition by its customers in the most recent KLAS Enterprise Speech recognition Report.

With SpeechQ for Radiology, radiologists have full control of their report creation process.

They decide whether to immediately electronically sign a report, save and complete it at a later time, or send it to a transcriptionist for editing.

This flexibility allows radiologists to select the best method to handle each report and improves their productivity.

'We are pleased that Amerinet has selected MedQuist to provide its physicians with a Speech recognition solution', says Scott Bennett, MedQuist senior vice president of sales and marketing.

'SpeechQ for Radiology's ability to integrate with Amerinet's existing PACS will streamline the radiologists' workflow, giving their referring physicians the clinical information they need to treat their patients promptly and efficiently'.
