Entrada saves us time and money. Our doctors no longer have to spend their evenings catching up and finishing charts. We’ve seen major improvements in both physician productivity and satisfaction with our EHR.

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) April 30, 2013

Entrada has published its latest case study, featuring the San Antonio Orthopaedic Group (TSAOG), the largest orthopaedic group in San Antonio and South Texas, which provides care for patients with a full range of musculoskeletal disorders. After its administration implemented an electronic health record system to remedy many of the inefficiencies of its paper charting system, TSAOG adopted Entrada’s mobile application to streamline documentation workflow, preserve the quality of patient care, and ensure its physicians were able to leave soon after seeing their last patient. The physicians quickly realized Entrada’s solution was helping reinstate productivity levels, improve turnaround time, and significantly reduce errors and lost dictations.

“I was working a few hours every night at home or on the weekends to complete patient charts, often missing time with my family and not having a real balance between my career and my family. My request was simple. I wanted to finish on time and reduce the amount of personal hours spent completing dictations. With Entrada, my request became a reality,” says Dr. Randall Marx, Orthopaedic Surgeon at The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group.

The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group introduced Entrada to its practice in December 2012, and physicians quickly adopted the mobile dictation solution, praising its sleek interface and intuitive functionality. Physicians were able to continue dictating while using their EHR, without being slowed down by the necessity to type or self-edit any voice-recognized text. After syncing with the practice management system to build a daily worklist, the physicians at TSAOG simply click on the patient name to dictate a note, without having to enter patient demographics or personal identifying information. The dictation is then automatically and securely submitted to Entrada’s data center, where the voice file is converted to text using voice recognition technology and quickly edited by an Entrada staff member. The finished work is then automatically inserted directly back into individual narrative text fields within the EHR templates via Entrada’s ExpressNote technology.

“Entrada saves us time and money. Our doctors no longer have to spend their evenings catching up and finishing charts. We’ve seen major improvements in both physician productivity and satisfaction with our EHR,” says John Urban, Patient Care and Training Manager at TSAOG.

About Entrada

Entrada protects physician productivity before, during and after the transition to an EHR system. Because every provider’s workflow is different, Entrada’s cloud-based voice engine enables physicians to dictate on their terms, whether through a digital dictation and backend editing workflow or through real-time, front-end speech-to-text for those who wish to self-edit. Whether dictating from a worklist from a mobile device (iOS or Android) or from directly within the EHR with a speechmike, Entrada provides a fast, easy way to document clinical information and makes EHRs much easier to adopt and use.
