For those who use or prefer cellular coverage other than AT&T, Scribe Mobile will work on the iTouch, which can be purchased for just over $200. Given the low cost and numerous additional features of the iTouch, I can’t see why anyone would choose the older style recorders over an iTouch with Scribe Mobile.
Lake Forest, IL (Vocus) September 23, 2010
Scribe Healthcare Technologies, Inc., announced the launch of its new mobile dictation app, Scribe Mobile. Scribe Mobile is initially available for the iPhone, iTouch, and iPad. Scribe Mobile is a leap ahead for those who prefer dictation via a mobile device. Scribe Mobile offers dictators the ability to:
- Dictate on the go
- Transfer voice files via 3G or WIFI
- View physician’s schedule
- Specify file priority
- Select template
- Track pending dictations
Scribe Mobile is easy to use. Simply open the app, select the patient and dictate. Rewind, playback, fast-forward, and insert additional dictation are included. Files can be transferred immediately without tethering the device or queue them for transfer later. After transfer Scribe Mobile provides a unique dictation id for tracking. Voice files are stored on the device for one week by default.
“Almost 50% of our dictating physicians dictate with handheld recorders. They prefer the freedom of dictating without being tethered to a PC or telephone. Until now that freedom has come with a price, greatly reduced access to daily schedule and patient demographics. Recorders are also expensive, some costing over $500” says John Weiss, Scribe Vice President. “For those who use or prefer cellular coverage other than AT&T, Scribe Mobile will work on the iTouch, which can be purchased for just over $200.

Scribe Mobile can be downloaded for free on iTunes and requires the user to have a Scribe account.
