Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2005
ZyDoc, an award-winning technology leader in transcription and automated medical documentation solutions, announced that it has upgraded and optimized its e-Transcription service to work with the Olympus DS4000 Professional Digital Handheld Recorder.
James M. Maisel, M.D., Chairman of ZyDoc says, ÂZyDoc is delighted to expand our handheld digital recording options to the professional level with the release of the Olympus DS4000 unit. We have been working with Olympus since 1998 and have found their recorders to consistently offer excellent quality and value. The DS4000 unit allows doctors who prefer a classic slideswitch to benefit from the digital technology without change in habits. The ZyDoc software that extends the functionality of the digital handhelds and is licensed to a public transcription company has also been upgraded. The software had won a LISA business productivity award allowing the physician to easily and rapidly download dictations and resume work within seconds. No special computer skills are required since one mouse click handles all functions including downloading and archiving of the dictations from the unit before erasing them, packaging them, and securely transmitting them to ZyDoc where they are immediately available and tracked like a UPS package. The ZyDoc software also automatically connects to our secure servers, downloads all completed jobs and has them waiting in the printer in the morning for the doctor."
The company has over ten years of experience in working with physicians who want to document their medical encounters quickly and efficiently while getting high quality, fast turnaround, and specialized documentation. ZyDoc offers low risk, high productivity solutions featuring dictation for data capture involving no change in work habits, infrastructure costs or training. The web-based TrackDocÂ system offers substantial advantages to physicians over EMR alternatives and can be implemented in one day. These solutions are applicable for 100% of physicians and require no IT experience or internal support. ZyDoc solutions seem like a transcription service on the front end and have many of the advantages of an EMR. ZyDoc is suitable for a single practitioner, multi-site offices, ASUÂs and hospitals and scales to a Community Health Information Network. The company exhibited at the first AMA Technology Summit on Selecting and Implementing the Right EMR technology in Philadelphia on November 12, 2004. Document access improves efficiency of coding and billing. Detailed medical records are easily shared and result in improved healthcare outcomes, especially in ambulatory environments involving multiple providers for complicated cases. The design eliminates the need for any capital investment and replaces legacy infrastructure.
Steve Koski, CEO and President of ZyDoc adds, "The ZyDoc technology platform offers a number of advantages to healthcare providers over traditional documentation solutions and EMR in terms of ease of implementation, operations, total costs, quality, speed of care, and disaster recovery. The solutions require no software or IT personnel, and are compatible with all PCs and operating systems with Internet browser capability. There is no training involved or complicated software to customize or learn. Doctors can start dictating immediately after enrollment using 800 toll free dialup or digital handheld recorders. Documents are always available on the Internet with HIPAA secure connections, and can be reviewed and signed remotely. The documents can also be automatically downloaded and printed to a PC, faxed or made available to share with authorized caregivers over the Internet. The ZyDoc carrier class data center has proven reliable without failure over the past year and was operational even during the Northeast blackout of 2003.Â
