IBM is providing Teges Corp. of Coral Gables, Fla. with its WebSphere software that enables doctors making their rounds to enter or access patient information using speech, a keyboard or handwriting via handheld, slate tablet PCs.      
   
Teges develops Web-based information for Intensive Care Units. The partnership combines Teges' i-Rounds with IBM's WebSphere technology, which is based on XHTML + Voice or X+V multimodal programming language.
   
IBM's software works with an integrated clinical information system that provides physicians and other healthcare providers instant access to patient data through a single Web interface. WebSphere software integrates different modes of data entry: speech, keyboard strokes and handwriting-recognition technology.  
   
Physicians at Miami Children's Hospital are currently using the technology, which provides the entire cardiac team with real-time pediatric ICU records. Anthony Rossi, MD, director of the Cardiovascular Surgery ICU at the hospital said the system allows physicians and nurses to monitor patients hundreds of miles from its primary center.
