Novarad develops new extensive integration with PowerScribe® 360

SALT LAKE CITY—Utah-based healthcare technology company Novarad’s most recent software development has enabled the company to achieve deep integration between its Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) and Nuance’s PowerScribe 360 dictation software.

Inconveniences in dictation throughout the healthcare industry include the repetitive and often time-consuming opening and closing of separate programs, the doubt as to whether or not a study has been updated correctly, and the discrepancies in communication between whichever programs you choose to use for imaging and for dictation.

“We are one of a small handful of PACS vendors that have completed this kind of integration,” said David GrandPre, Director of Implementation at Novarad.

This integration allows healthcare professionals to run NovaPACS or PowerScribe from either program. It also includes auto-launching of PowerScribe when signing into PACS, the ability to park a dictation when using PowerScribe, and the seamless communication of study information and status between the two systems.
