Scribe Healthcare Interactive Includes Customizable Cloud Features for Greater Flexibility


Scribe Healthcare Technologies Inc. has released a revolutionary speech recognition software called Scribe Interactive. Since physicians and healthcare personnel need to be adaptable to cost efficient ways of practicing healthcare, Scribe Interactive is one tool that can immediately generate transcription layout from a dictation. With Scribe Interactive, the built in Scribe’s M*Modal’s Speech Recognition Engine leverages existing voice profiles to accomplish this. Even without a recognized voice profile, Scribe Interactive allows users to create verbal snippets for efficiency.

There are many added features to this tool. Notably, the technology allows script commands that define when certain phrases should be added or excluded and that are particular to certain dictators. This feature allows the transcription of fluid and quality text outputs. In addition, Scribe Interactive resides within the cloud making it accessible to anyone. Residing in the cloud also allows the solution to take advantage of certain features that would otherwise have been impossible to implement had it remained a strictly standalone application.

The addition of cloud features was a significant improvement to how dictation software works. The VP of Scribe, John Weiss, explained that this new voice recognition tool will be accessible in the cloud for shared language model creation. By providing login permission for its access, it cuts down the need for having expensive software installations and extensive system training. Mr. Weiss said that “Since commands, macros and snippets are ‘in the cloud’ any customizations can be transferred if users install Scribe Interactive on another PC.”

To increase accuracy and speed of voice recognition technology, the system will allow customized verbiage for specific medical fields that includes its own vocabulary, phrases and macros. These customizations can even be shared across a department, clinic or practice for consistency. A dictionary with terms specific to a medical specialty can also be installed. The solution will also allow users to suggest changes to generated text and also suggest localized phrases and words. All these features can be accessed by purchasing an annual ‘user license’ which is cheaper to competing solutions.
