MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 22, 2016) - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ", "VIQ Solutions" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:VQS) is pleased to announce that VIQ Dataworxs has been awarded a new contract with a northern Ontario hospital for the secure capture, management and transcription workflow of physician dictation and consultation.
The hospital houses more than 130 beds with over 800 frontline staff and 70 physicians. The hospital is a leader in state-of-the-art telecommunications that connects physicians and staff to medical practitioners and specialists throughout Canada.
The hospital's existing phone-based dictation installation couldn't keep up with the latest modern technology. The new Audioworxs implementation will enable the hospital to capture physician dictation and consultation using the hospital's new VoIP phone system and utilize a secure virtual server environment to maximize efficiency while minimizing infrastructure outlay.
From their private cloud, the hospital's authorized transcriptionists can access voice files for efficient transcription while maintaining the highest level of cybersecurity and privacy. The entire Audioworxs workflow, from capture to transcription, is encrypted and meets the highest security and privacy standards including PIPEDA and HIPAA.
"At no point do the voice files leave the hospital's control, ensuring that the hospital's confidential patient information remains completely private and secure," said Daryl Duda, Vice President of Sales at VIQ Dataworxs. "The flexible Audioworxs platform enables the hospital to lock down their confidential data while facilitating the transcription workflow for authorized users."
"Once again, VIQ Dataworxs is proven to be the technology choice for modern medical customers who demand leading edge workflow features like VoIP compatibility and flexible public or private cloud configuration while maintaining complete security and privacy of their content," said Sebastien Paré, President and CEO of VIQ Dataworxs. "We continue to expand our customer base in the medical market as well as in other new verticals like law enforcement and insurance that place an equally high premium on privacy and cybersecurity."
