iScribe Healthcare today released a new medical guide that covers the primary benefits of cloud-based speech recognition software for hospitals and physicians.

The guide, "10 Advantages of Cloud-Based Voice Recognition for Healthcare,” looks at everything from convenience, speed and accuracy to productivity, data security and the ability to share profiles. For example, speech recognition software in the cloud supports both front-end and back-end dictation needs as well as workstation applications like EMR/EHR or a third party HIS/LIS system.

“Web-based medical speech technology has simply improved to the point that we could offer an enterprise hosted solution and related products like iScribe Speech Doctor that’s HL7 compatible for ADT & EMR integration,” said Dennis V. McBride, director of innovation at iScribe Healthcare. “The resource gives physicians and executives in hospitals and other medical facilities the perspective they need to understand practical and financial benefits of cloud-based speech recognition software.”

McBride pointed out that productivity related to EHR is the leading IT problem facing physicians and other medical professionals (15.5%), according to the “2015 Tech Survey” by Physicians Practice. The report notes that voice recognition software is among technology tools that respondents use (37.1%).”

Here are a few examples from the guide:


“You don’t need to rely on a particular computer to use cloud-based voice recognition software. No matter what floor or building clinicians work on throughout the day or week, they can use any number of computers with Internet access. A truly web-based speech recognition system is not tied to the physician, EMR/EHR or even the location. In other words, with a single license you can use it at any location and with any EMR/EHR. It’s the ultimate in terms of flexibility. Additionally, there is no need to load software or run an application, which is why hardware requirements are minimal.”

Productivity Tracking

“When tracking the productivity of the user, a browser-based management portal can be extremely beneficial because you should be able to track the recognition rate that each physician achieves. With that product capability, you can know which physician may need some additional attention, including training and adding sir names to the vocabulary to help with both recognition rates and user productivity. The majority of speech recognition systems are standalone and do not offer a management module. As a result, you have no idea how to determine the project success rate. Actually, it’s like driving blind, a real investment risk.”

No Integration Hurdles

“Unlike cloud-based systems, if voice recognition software is installed at each workstation, IT staff will be tied up and profiles will need to be updated when physicians try to work at different computers. Each location would have to pay for and support integrations if each location had a different EMR/EHR or version of an EMR/EHR. Additionally, the IT department would need to make sure the computer workstation has enough resources to run an EHR and a voice recognition system along with any other applications. Workstation-based or network-based voice recognition systems consume considerable computer resources and could cause issues with other applications.”
