Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) June 22, 2008
Vianix announced today that it has executed an OEM License Agreement with VoiceViewer, an innovator in handheld voice recording devices for the Healthcare market. VoiceViewer's simple and elegant solution increases caregivers' efficiency and allows them to spend more time with their patients and less time on paperwork. Caregivers respond to voice prompts to collect patient information at the point of care, and automatically upload the recorded responses to a computer where forms are completed with powerful Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR).
Vianix' MASC enhances the VoiceViewer solution with improved performance, lower power consumption and more accurate ASR results. The combination of Vianix' MASC speech processing technology and VoiceViewer's handheld voice recording device will command an important position in the $20B Medical Transcription market.
With a wireless, portable device that captures information in real time, the VoiceViewer solution helps eliminate manual data entry and transcription, providing fast availability and access to critical patient information. The adoption of MASC for management of voice file bandwidth and storage requirements while maintaining high ASR accuracy is a critical enabler for VoiceViewer's device.
Dr. Veeru Ramaswamy, Vianix' Chief Technology Officer said, "We are extremely excited about the market potential as well as the overwhelming utility of VoiceViewer's solution. Besides making Healthcare more effective and efficient, it is a showcase for the potential of our technology. We've enjoyed working closely with and look forward to a long and productive relationship with VoiceViewer."
Voiceviewer's Founder and CEO, Mike Petera added, "Vianix' MASC technology enhances our product in areas which our customer base values, namely low bandwidth and fast transfers along with high ASR accuracy. Vianix' team has been extremely responsive to our technical and time to market needs and we anticipate this collaboration to lead to broad success in Healthcare and other markets."
VoiceViewer Technologies (VVT) is the first company to successfully integrate interactive speech-recognition and innovative wireless cellular communication with customer-driven application software for the healthcare industry.
The result is VoiceViewer®, a wireless, handheld, voice-activated device that allows nurses to record real-time patient data at the point of care, and then simply upload it wirelessly or via USB to a computer to complete charts and forms in minutes.
VoiceViewer Technologies is partnering with hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities interested in deriving practical value and improved performance from VoiceViewer's remarkable point-of-care technology.
