Overcoming Three Obstacles to Speech Recognition in Healthcare

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - September 08, 2015) - On the Aventura blog, Dustin Lake, senior sales engineer at Aventura, shares how situational awareness can help address common workflow obstacles that hinder the adoption of speech recognition software in healthcare.

According to the blog, with documentation demands in the healthcare industry growing, providers are making significant investments in speech recognition software. These solutions allow clinicians to input patient information directly into EHR systems through speech rather than through manual keyboard entry. Popular voice solutions, such as Dragon Enterprise Edition, M*Modal Fluency Voice Manager, and 3M ChartScript capture data in real time while eliminating typing, spelling errors, and the time wasted by manually entering information to complete a patient chart.

Lake pens that, technical issues such as profile load times, microphone connectivity, and profile corruption hinder clinicians' ability to roam in a virtual environment and move from workstation to workstation.

"Implementing a situational awareness platform like the one offered by Aventura can help overcome these issues," notes Lake. "This solution provides a customized clinical computing experience providing quick authentication that reduces the launch process from minutes to seconds. It also controls the start up sequencing to ensure proper operation of microphones. Finally it automates and accelerates the log out process, reducing wait times and the urge to shut down prematurely -- eliminating the risk of losing data."
