Seeking renewed freedom and flexibility.
Like many physicians, the providers at HSA were struggling to keep pace with the documentation requirements while being tethered to their computers. However, as surgeons, their challenges were compounded by the fact that they often need access to data from multiple EHRs. While some EHRs have mobile functionality, often it is only available within their customer base, so interoperability is a particularly difficult issue. They needed an agnostic, centralized workflow solution that would allow them to quickly access patient data and documentation—regardless of its location.
“In any given day, I may have surgeries at two different hospitals while still seeing patients in my office. It’s a constant struggle to connect the dots and toggle between systems,” said Dr. Eric Britton, hand surgery physician. “It’s not just keeping up with documentation. To be effective, I need quick and easy access to information such as medical history or scheduling details to determine the next steps of a patient’s care.” These surgeons are accustomed to exacting results with speed and precision. They needed a better way to contend with their circumstances and manage their documentation more effectively, without relying on an army of IT resources to do so.
DocBuddy offers mobility with a simple, secure and intuitive design.
DocBuddy delivers secure, intelligent voice-driven experiences.
The DocBuddy solution harnesses Dragon Medical, the most powerful cloud-based speech recognition technology available today. With 99% accuracy out of the gate and automatic accent detection, Dragon Medical embedded in DocBuddy provides secure and accurate real-time medical speech-to-text, text-to-speech, built-in visualization and feedback, voice navigation, and management of voice commands (macros) right inside the app, with anytime, anywhere access through a HITRUST CSF certified platform.
Embedded within the DocBuddy mobile application, Dragon Medical offers secure end-to-end transmission using TLS protocols. It allows users to document more than just subjective dictation; using voice commands, they can also enhance communications between providers through a document sharing and messaging platform. Customizable commands and specialty terminology allow providers to create, add, or edit anything they need—using just their voice. “I have never used a more accurate voice platform,” said Dr. Carlton Clinkscales, hand surgery physician. “It can be profiled to adapt to different accents and manage variances between microphones. After dictating, I don’t even have to go back and edit my notes. It’s all there in real time.”
Offering more control and greater satisfaction.
