As per the agreement, MedQuist will offer mobility enabled solutions, digital voice capture, a speech recognition and document workflow platform, voice-enabled EHR functionality and transcription services to Aspirus.

The speech recognition technology will help the company in improving productivity of their in-house transcriptionists while boosting physician adoption and usability of their EHR.

With MedQuist, Aspirus intends to complete critical ED work, reduce discharge summaries from 72 hours to less than 24 hours, and reduce cardiology reports from 24 hours to less than 12 hours.

Informatics Medical director Larry Gordon said MedQuist has proved upgrading a technology platform which saves time from user-friendly tools that streamline workflow, deliver speech recognition that follows physicians wherever they go.

Aspirus Corporate Quality Services vice president Jeanne Scinto said faster report turnaround times (TATs) speed coding, billing and patient movement – enabling care delivery for patients and a healthier revenue cycle for the hospital.
