Dictate, Upload and Get Transcribed – All at a Click of a Button on the iPhone

Share Article

A new iPhone app launched to shake up the healthcare timeline across practices and provide convenience to the physician groups across the world at every mile.

Imagine, a physician dictates, uploads and gets his transcripts back even before his patient gets his X-Ray reports to him on his second visit. Time is of utmost essence and that’s something that’s classically captured by a newly launched iPhone app named Orra Health. Orra Health is a transcription software that combines the functions of a world-class digital voice recorder and an efficient file management system with secure upload options. Built on the iOS platform, the back-end of the app is facilitated by some of the most experienced transcriptionists in the industry handling the conversion process at Acroseas Global Solutions – Pioneers in medical transcription outsourcing for the last 13 years. One can download the app for free from the Apple app store.

“The arena of healthcare world-over is seeking more and more advanced care solutions, and today our physicians are more focused on convenience and smooth interoperability of solutions when it comes to technology adoption,” says Mr. Rajesh Doshi, Executive Director Acroseas. Such is the belief overall as four out of five practicing physicians in the US today use smart phones, tablets, various mobile devices and numerous applications in their medical practice according to a news report from Jackson & Coker.

“Our experience with clients across the board in the US, UK and Australia gave us adequate insight into the growing needs of solutions driven by convenience that can tackle critical tasks when physicians are on the move. Physicians running tight schedules shuttling between clinics for attending emergency cases do waste lot of time which could be used for attending to more patients," Mr. Doshi sounded very concerned. According to him physicians lose out on a lot of their critical time on administrative activities which leads to less time towards patient care and is not acceptable to anyone. Keeping the starters in view an Android version of this app is slated to launch in the next 3 weeks. “Android devices enjoy a 47% market share in the US according to data available for the last quarter of 2011 and Orra Health's entry into the Android devices market would certainly help improve the market share of the apps meant for these devices,” he exudes in confidence. "Providing maximum convenience to our physicians is our aim and this applies to all our future launches,” he adds.

The road ahead looks very promising for smart phones within the healthcare arena according to Mr. Doshi. The Global Mobile Health Market Report 2010-2015 released by research2guidance estimates that by 2015, mobile health industry is expected to reach out to 500mn of total 1.4bn Smart phone users. He expressed hope that the company would be one of the front runners in this revolution.

The age of Smartphone apps promoting the concept of healthcare mobility has emerged as the most interesting space to watch out. According to a prediction made by PWC the potential revenue earnings by M-Health in India itself is pegged at INR 3000 Crores (US $ 0.6 Billion) and around $ 23 Billion world over by 2017. Looking at the way the company is gearing up to meet the new challenges, that day appears to be very near where healthcare technology will define all of Acroseas’ financial statements.
