Philips, Elsevier integrate SpeechMagic with RadConsult
Royal Philips Electronics plans to integrate its speech recognition platform, SpeechMagic, with the Philadelphia-based Elsevier’s RadConsult radiology diagnostic reference system to increase productivity and reduce medical errors during review and diagnosis of patient cases.
“Clinical knowledge is estimated to double every 18 months,” said Marcel Wassink, CEO of Philips Speech Recognition Systems. “Interoperability between the RadConsult radiology reference system and SpeechMagic will provide radiologists with solid decision support based on the latest information from the field.”

According to Wassink, RadConsult delivers radiology images and differential diagnosis content are delivered to a website and organized around the radiologist’s workflow.
