Crescendo Systems (Booth 6848) is exhibiting Centro, its new desktop dictation application, and DigiDictate-Mobile for smartphones, which supports Windows Mobile OS and BlackBerry, and addresses the 24/7 need for physicians to access dictation and patient data.
Centro allows physicians to see all the patients currently admitted in a ward or scheduled to be seen in a clinic. Based on the patient location, the physician can then start charting the patient care via dictation, keyboard and handwriting, or simply browse and update the patient's files and all historical data.
DigiDictate-Mobile, which incorporates touch screen technology, provides remote access to data results in constant updates and progress of work, thus providing the physician with a "to-do" list of patients that need to be dictated on.
The large dictation controls offer the same comfort as the slide switch recording system. Likewise, data transmissions are based on user configurations, although all modes are supported. In addition, dictations that are transferred to the main digital dictation system have a voice format which is suitable for back-end voice recognition, according to the company.
