Crescendo finalizes Prexus Health Partners install
Speech recognition and report application developer Crescendo Systems of Laval, Canada, reported that Ohio-based healthcare group Prexus Health Partners is entering the final phase of implementation of its integrated digital dictation and transcription system. The company’s integrated DigiScribe-XL and MedRite-IP platform will allow the group to centralize the management of all health records while making patient information available across the group's 12 ambulatory surgery centers, imaging centers, surgical hospitals and imaging partners, the company said.

All 125 physicians at Praxus Health Partners are able to dictate over the phone with the DigiScribe-XL Call-in module. Completed voice files are then streamed over to the network for the group's offshore transcriptionists to process using MedRite-IP, Crescendo's medical transcription application, the company said. Once a report has been typed, physicians have access to the Crescendo electronic signature module MD Center-XL, which allows them to securely review and sign-off reports from any connected PC.
