Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2005
ZyDoc, a technology leader in automated medical documentation solutions, announced free emergency transcription and medical record support for healthcare workers and organizations affected by the Katrina hurricane disaster. In view of the severity of the hurricane and widespread disruption of services, ZyDoc recognizes the need to fulfill the requirements of healthcare providers for medical transcription and documentation management. With many hospitals in the effected area temporally closed or operating with limited services, the infrastructure for ongoing medical records will be severely limited. Coupled with the anticipated increase in medical services secondary to the disaster, and difficulties for healthcare providers and transcriptionists to travel or perform their duties, ZyDoc anticipates that there maybe an immediate need to offer transcription services and secure Internet based medical records to the medical community. The displaced victims will benefit from secure Internet based records that can be accessible from anywhere.
Jim Maisel, M.D., Chairman of ZyDoc explains, "The ZyDoc technology platform offers a number of advantages to the disaster area to overcome infrastructural limitations imposed by service outages and temporary personnel shortages and displacement of people. Physicians, hospitals, relief, legal, rescue and transcription companies can utilize ZyDoc infrastructure and transcription services starting work within minutes. ZyDoc intends to make our surplus capacity available immediately to the medical community on a first-come first-served basis at no charge until services can be restored."
Steve Koski, CEO and President of ZyDoc explains the operational aspects of the transcription and medical records service as follows: "Health-care workers will be able to dictate into handheld digital recorders or the ZyDoc TelDoc 800 toll-free servers. ZyDoc will supply fully edited transcription services, usually with overnight service as available, for these documents or provide Internet based ASP delivery of the voice files to the transcriptionists selected by the health-care users. Once transcribed, documents and voice files will be available immediately and securely via Internet access from any PC with a browser and stored for later access. 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 datacenter has proven reliable without failure over the past two years and was operational even during the Northeast blackout. We intend to make our surplus capacity available immediately to the medical community on a first-come first-served basis at no charge."
