RadConsult radiology diagnostic reference system is integrated with speech recognition platform

Philips Speech Recognition Systems : 15 November, 2007  (New Product)
SpeechMagic the Philips speech recognition platform will be integrated to provide interoperability with Elsevier’s new RadConsult radiology diagnostic reference system.
The integration allows customers and the partners of both parties to use industrial grade Speech recognition with access to world-class radiological information to assist them in increasing productivity and reducing medical errors during review and diagnosis of patient cases.

“Clinical knowledge is estimated to double every eighteen months,” said Marcel Wassink, CEO of Philips Speech recognition Systems. “Interoperability between the RadConsult radiology reference system and SpeechMagic will provide radiologists with solid decision support based on the latest information from the field. SpeechMagic now not only speeds up the availability of medical reports but also helps ensure more accurate and evidence-based delivery of care.”

RadConsult improves the diagnostic efficiency of the radiologist. Radiology images and differential diagnosis content are delivered through an easy-to-use website and organized around the radiologist’s workflow. This first–of-its-kind integration of the RadConsult service with SpeechMagic can enhance the benefits of Radiology Information Systems (RIS) by giving radiologists access to information at the reading room workstation.

'We are excited about this partnership with Philips Speech recognition Systems and how it will support our goal of improving the efficiency of the radiology practice. We are integrating more of our world-class, radiological reference information where health practitioners need it to support their diagnostic decisions,' says Brian Nairn, chief executive officer, Elsevier, Health Sciences Division.

Philips’ industrial grade Speech recognition platform SpeechMagic is installed at more than 8,000 professional sites in 45 nations.
