MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 22, 2016) - VIQ Solutions Inc. ("VIQ", "VIQ Solutions" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:VQS) is pleased to announce that VIQ Dataworxs, in conjunction with reseller Edi-Cord WPS, was awarded a new contract for the secure capture, management and transcription of physician dictation with an Ontario hospital.
"Mid-sized hospitals are among the fastest to embrace new technology platforms that emphasize efficiency, automation and patient privacy and security," said Sebastien Paré, President and CEO of VIQ Dataworxs. "The VIQ Dataworxs footprint continues to grow quickly as hospitals modernize dictation and transcription procedures and recognize our performance superiority."
Doctors and staff at the hospital use their existing phone system to capture physician dictation which is automatically routed to the hospital's secure central server for storage and access.
From the server, the hospital's authorized transcriptionists can access voice files for playback and transcription. The entire VIQ Dataworxs workflow from capture to transcription is encrypted and meets the highest security and privacy standards, including PIPEDA and HIPAA.
"The VIQ Dataworxs platform is the ideal balance of efficiency and security, ensuring that the hospital's confidential data is secure while enabling access to authorized users for efficient transcription," said Daryl Duda, Vice President of Sales at VIQ Dataworxs. "The hospital retains control over the voice files at all times, ensuring patient information remains completely private and confidential."
The contract was won by VIQ Dataworxs reseller Edi-Cord WPS of North Bay. Earlier this year, Edi-Cord was awarded a capture and workflow system contract with an Ontario police force.
"The advanced VIQ Dataworxs dictation and transcription platform, with its emphasis on security, appeals to our customer base of hospitals, medical clinics and police departments in Ontario," said David Aitken, Vice President of Sales at Edi-Cord WPS. "We look forward to continuing to partner with VIQ Dataworxs as we roll out their technology platform to our customers as part of their modernization and digitization initiatives."
