Emdat Video Promotes Advantages of Using Dictation to Document in EHR

Whiteboard Animation Illustrates Productivity and Cost Benefits of Emdat Solution

MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - August 20, 2013) - Emdat, Inc., a leading provider of medical documentation technology, today released a whiteboard animation video detailing the advantages of using dictation and their unified platform to create comprehensive documentation within the Electronic Health Record (EHR). As EHRs become more prevalent, many clinicians are required to use point-and-click and front-end speech recognition to document -- methods that can tax clinicians and impair the patient experience. Emdat offers an easy to use alternative to these modes of data entry that can achieve meaningful use objectives while maintaining clinician productivity and reducing documentation costs.

Since the advent of the HITECT Act, medical facilities are charged with enforcing meaningful use of EHRs while maintaining profitability. The slowed productivity of clinicians performing manual data entry can lengthen their workday or limit their patient workload. Emdat's video emphasizes that clinicians using dictation to document spend considerably less time per day creating documentation. Clinicians using Emdat's mobile app to dictate and document can access patient demographics, historical information and templates, speeding document completion. By increasing clinician efficiency, Emdat allows clinicians to maintain their revenue capacity.

Emdat's innovative pricing model -- no cost implementation, interfacing, support, integration and hardware -- and extensive EHR integration capabilities are other highlighted points. Exclusive templating capabilities reduce the amount of typing, and, in turn, documentation fees. Extensive interfacing capabilities automatically populate discrete data from the clinician's dictation into the appropriate sections of the EHR, supporting meaningful use.

"Emdat is driven to simplify documentation for the clinician, understanding it will both bring operational and financial benefits to medical facilities and enhance patient care," said Emdat CEO Randy Olver. "The video simply and clearly communicates why we believe Emdat is the best documentation solution."
