The cost effective ZyDoc solution improves productivity and quality of the medical record while justifying higher coding levels and reducing audit risk.
Islandia, NY (PRWEB) October 02, 2017
ZyDoc has released an Android version of its popular mobile dictation app for use with TrackDoc Connect,™ ZyDoc’s secure cloud-based transcription service. New ZyDoc customers can download the app, also available for iOS, and try the TrackDoc Connect transcription service at no cost for two weeks. For EHR users, the app allows doctors to securely access patient schedules from their smartphones and dictate encounters for automated EHR data entry.
Used by small and large medical practices and hospital systems nationwide, TrackDoc Connect is a HIPAA-compliant cloud-based transcription service that facilitates section-level insertion of clinical documentation into the EHR. Connectivity to most major EHRs is supported, including athenahealth®, eClinicalworks®, AllScripts® and many others. With the mobile app, doctors can access patient schedules remotely, select a patient and job type, and dictate. The transcription is then inserted into the appropriate EHR sections. USB handheld recorders and toll-free dial-in may also be used for dictation, depending on user preference. Referral faxing is available for letters and documents that are not for EHR insertion.
The free trial offer includes the mobile app and two weeks’ transcription per user. The app is available for free download from Google Play (Android), or the Apple App Store (iPhone, iPad). Following the trial, enhanced options and multiple users can be added, including other providers and authorized administrators.
"Doctors can work 60% faster with dictation on their smartphone than with conventional EHR data entry,” according to James Maisel, MD, ZyDoc Chairman and principal investigator for an NIH-funded research study, Natural Language Processing–Enabled and Conventional Data Capture Methods for Input to Electronic Health Records: A Comparative Usability Study. “The automatic insertion of the rich Health Story in the EHR is better and more accurate than medical scribes lacking medical language skills of experienced transcriptionists. Doctors don't have to mess with complicated speech recognition technology, correct errors or deal with additional employees. The cost effective ZyDoc solution improves productivity and quality of the medical record while justifying higher coding levels and reducing audit risk.”
TrackDoc Connect solves the clinical documentation bottleneck and usability issues related to EHR population (aka data entry), payer coding requirements, and government healthcare reporting regulations. Physicians can securely dictate notes and reports for transcription and insertion into their EHR, and share referrals electronically by fax. Accuracy measurement tools and flexible workflow are optimized to ensure fast turnaround times. Clients may choose to fax or print completed transcriptions at their own locations, making use of available printing or downloading capabilities provided by the ZyDoc website.
As a clinical data management tool, TrackDoc Connect™ transcription can be used in combination with ZyDoc’s MediSapien™ platform to integrate with EHRs for structured reporting and analytics. MediSapien utilizes natural language processing (NLP) and AI technologies to capture and code structured data from narrative or semi-structured text, enabling cross-platform interoperability for information exchange and data mining for applications such as clinical decision support, identifying at-risk patient populations, computer-assisted coding, registry reporting, pharma RWD studies, and more.
TrackDoc Connect requires no software installation, facilitating fast implementation and eliminating IT burdens. It is device and browser independent. Now in version 3.0, the TrackDoc Connect platform is designed for tight security with all voice, metadata and transcription versions encrypted in the Cloud, and incorporates user audit and tracking. It does not use vulnerable FTP servers. ZyDoc transcriptionists are prevented from exporting audios, PHI metadata and transcribed documents outside the platform; there is no “off-site” storage of patient health information (“PHI”). PHI is accessed via any web-browser over the internet using the highest available internet security protocol, https. All communications between the browser and the website are encrypted.
