MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 24, 2015) - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ", "VIQ Solutions" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:VQS) is pleased to announce that VIQ Dataworxs, through reseller Voice Automation Inc., has been awarded a new digital medical dictation and transcription project with Cardiac Surgery Associates, SC, in Downer's Grove, Illinois.
With 34 physicians and 24 locations, Cardiac Surgery Associates offers comprehensive medical care for an array of cardiac, lung and vascular diseases in the early and advanced stages. Cardiac Surgery Associates brings together a wide range of medical experts to meet the unique clinical needs of each patient, relying on the latest technology advances to create a personalized plan of care.
Cardiac Surgery Associates selected the VIQ Audioworxs capture and transcription workflow management system to manage their growing dictation and transcription needs. Audioworxs allows Cardiac Surgery Associates doctors to dictate their patient encounters using their phone system, with multiple doctors able to dictate simultaneously. The audio is then automatically and securely routed to the cloud-based Dataworxs Distribution Server, where the audio files can be accessed by the customer's onsite or offsite transcriptionists using the Audioworxs Player. The entire dictation and transcription process is completely compliant with HIPAA security and privacy protocols.
Multiple doctors at Cardiac Surgery Associates are also using the VIQ Dataworxs MobileMic app to capture their dictation. The audio is automatically and securely routed to the Dataworxs Distribution Server, a cloud-based service that seamlessly integrates with the customer's Audioworxs transcription workflow management system. MobileMic is supported on iPhone, Android and BlackBerry smartphones and tablets.
The solution was sold and supported by Dataworxs reseller Voice Automation Inc. of Chicago.
"The customer's dictation and transcription needs had overrun their existing phone-based dictation system," said Ken Kloss of Voice Automation Inc. "Audioworxs is a flexible solution that fits into the customer's existing environment and infrastructure and allows them to expand their dictation and transcription capabilities while at the same time meeting their strict security and privacy protocols."
This new customer joins an ever growing number of hospitals and medical transcription companies in North America and Australia currently using VIQ Audioworxs solutions.
"When VIQ purchased Dataworxs, the objective was to leverage the synergies on our digital media platforms for the benefit of our combined customers, enabling medical, law enforcement, insurance and legal customers like Cardiac Surgery Associates to reach new level of digital effectiveness and operational excellence," said Sebastien Paré, President and CEO of VIQ Solutions. "Our medical customers are under tremendous pressure to securely increase their digital footprint via proven solutions at a reasonable cost. We look forward to continuing to grow our medical presence and expand our service offering to new and existing customers as we combine our respective technologies and expertise."
