iSOFT equips radiology information systems with real-time speech recognition

ISoft : 21 January, 2008  (New Product)
iSOFT’s RadCentre radiology information system now offers real-time speech recognition so dictations appear instantly as screen text, which speeds the time to produce critical radiology reports and share patient diagnoses.
RadCentre seamlessly integrates the SpeechMagic technology from Philips, and together is proven to increase productivity. Early adopters are already witnessing improved workflows, a faster turnaround of reports, and reduced waiting times for patients and referring doctors.

Featuring Intelligent Speech Interpretation, this solution produces highly accurate radiology reports with a minimum of human intervention. The solution not only recognises words but also understands the context, so is able to ignore dialogue that is not part of the dictation, implement dictated corrections and rephrase sentences. The software can also fill information into forms, and formats and organises text, for example adding section headings, numbering and standard content to produce usable reports.

Gary Williams, partner programme manager for Philips Speech recognition Systems, said: “More than 8,000 organisations world-wide have now implemented Speech recognition solutions which are powered by SpeechMagic to optimise document creation and improve healthcare efficiency. Together with iSOFT we can now further improve patients’ healthcare experience and potentially save lives by speeding up documentation flows and ensuring the availability of patient information when needed, where needed.”

SpeechMagic is the most advanced and widely-used Speech recognition technology in European healthcare today according to Frost and Sullivan.

Paul Richards, managing director, iSOFT UK and Ireland, said: “Digital dictation of diagnostic reports and the ability to send voice files electronically for typists to transcribe was a vast improvement over the previous method of sending cassette tapes. Real-time Speech recognition promises even greater time savings, which is especially vital in emergencies.

“The speed, accuracy and security of radiology reports are improved markedly, with the clinical radiologist able to create and verify the report as a single, continuous process. Being able to dictate reports, and see them instantly on screen, saves radiologists having to check, correct and possibly re-send reports for typing.”

The RadCentre real-time Speech recognition option is network-based, highly scalable, and can be administered and managed centrally.

iSOFT is an IBA Health Group company.
