ScanSoft Inc. this week launched the Dragon NaturallySpeaking 7 software development kit (SDK) server edition that supports server-based speech recognition of recorded dictation. The Dragon NaturallySpeaking SDK server edition complements the Dragon NaturallySpeaking SDK client edition.
North American medical transcription costs have reached more than $10 billion annually, with nearly every healthcare facility employing or outsourcing significant resources to handle this manual process, ScanSoft said. The Dragon NaturallySpeaking SDK server edition allows medical transcriptionists to receive an automatically generated draft report, which then only requires editing.
The device is designed to be integrated into clinical documentation systems by transcription service organizations, healthcare ISVs, and systems integrators, said ScanSoft.
