Philips Medical Systems has enhanced its speech recognition technology, SpeechMagic, which is installed in more than 7,000 sites worldwide. The added functionality is aimed at increasing the choice of reporting-workflows available in hospital-wide speech recognition scenarios.
Philips will showcase the extended functionality for front-end speech recognition, as well as Island Mode for increased mobility, at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual meeting, Feb. 13 - 17, in Dallas.
Island Mode allows physicians to access SpeechMagic outside of the central network, for example on a laptop or tablet PC. Physicians can finalize reports directly on their mobile client anytime, anywhere. Alternatively, they can forward automatically generated text to a medical transcriptionist over their preferred network (LAN, WAN, Internet), Philips said.
