Vianix announced today that eCast, an innovative Electronic Medical Records company, has licensed MASC voice processing technology.

eCast is a medical software firm with a suite of products designed explicitly for medical practices. Based in Raleigh, NC, eCast provides a fully-integrated, affordable and flexible solution for large and small practices. Today, the eCast EMR™ system is being used by physicians from 15 different specialties across the U.S.

MASC will enable an efficient mobile device and mobile network based point-of-capture solution for eCast. With compression ratios up to 22 times smaller than traditional .WAV voice file formats, pristine voice quality, and negligible impact on Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) accuracy, MASC is an integral part of the eCast EMR offering, from the point at which a Physician dictates, on to ASR transcription, and then to the transcriptionist performing quality assurance.

Working with Peter Bechtel, President of eCast, Vianix was able to craft a system solution for eCast's voice compression needs that will add value to their bottom line today, and pave the way for growth in the future. "We are able to build a very efficient product that optimizes the bandwidth of our mobile product due to MASC's compression algorithms" said Bechtel. He went on to say, "The MASC technology gives our product a value that will be readily seen by the physician."

Physicians will be able to dictate to a mobile device and then easily synchronize with their office PCs to enter their dictation into eCast's EMR system. "eCast's approach excels due to Peter Bechtel's leadership and out of the box thinking demonstrated by few in the Healthcare industry. We are delighted to be a part of their success and will continue to support them in any way possible", notes Reza Hashampour, President & CEO of Vianix.
