MedQuist launches mobile platform to streamline the daily workflow of physicians

MedQuist : 27 August, 2008  (New Product)
MedQuist has launched PhysAssist IQ Web, a mobile platform that enables physicians to streamline their daily workflow.
PhysAssist IQ Web, powered by IQMax, puts the physician's rounds list, schedule and patient clinical information in the palm of their hand, and allows them to document each encounter at the point of care by using multiple wireless devices (such as smartphones, PDAs and Tablet/PCs).

Combined with the industry-leading MedQuist Enterprise Platform, PhysAssist IQ Web creates a seamless web-based solution for physicians to document patient encounters. When physicians dictate, the voice is automatically and securely uploaded to the Enterprise Platform to complete the document creation workflow. Once the file is speech recognised and edited, the transcribed results are available for viewing at the mobile device or PC, providing the caregiver with important patient information anytime, anywhere.

Rounding is the most recent feature added to PhysAssist IQ Web. Through the implementation of an interface to the HIS or Practice management System, physicians can have their patient and census lists on their mobile devices. Those who practice at multiple sites can easily keep track of schedule changes from their home or office. In addition, the platform:

- Provides user-configurable patient lists based on location, schedule, groups, or census data.

- Ensures accuracy of the patient data and promotes Patient safety with anywhere, anytime access to clinical results - with visual alerts for abnormal or critical values.

- Provides detailed patient care information, lab reports, medications, vitals, and microbiology.

- Offers a quick view of actions completed on each patient.

- Allows patients to be added quickly and easily.

For mobile dictation, MedQuist's PhysAssist IQ Web offers:

- Simple and efficient controls to document encounters in real time by location.

- Ability to view and dictate on other providers' patients.

- Patient demographics that are automatically linked to each dictation, saving time and reducing costly errors.

- Patient details available on the review screen.

- Unlimited visit type and physician type pull-downs for dictation.

'PhysAssist IQ Web provides the healthcare facility with a competitive advantage by enhancing physician efficiency, increasing staff satisfaction and improving patient safety,' said Emmy Weber, vice president of Product Management at MedQuist. 'Today's demanding schedules require that physicians maximise the value of every minute. With PhysAssist IQ Web, the providers have a mobile electronic record, so they get the clinical results they need when they need them.'

PhysAssist IQ Web supports efforts to comply with HIPAA, and minimises exposure by encrypting dictations in real time. Through its intuitive format, cutting-edge use of technology and integration with patient data systems, PhysAssist IQ Web can also free up time for its users, providing the ability to see more patients or to spend more time with each patient.
