Scribe vs Speech Recognition Technology

 

Scribe’s charting solutions are vastly different than forcing physicians to be tethered to their computers using Speech Recognition Technologies (SRTs). Case studies show that physician productivity and satisfaction improves dramatically when they switch to Scribe’s charting solutions.  In addition, the quality of documentation improves, allowing organizations to improve coding and billing, reduce denials, successfully pass audits, and improve patient outcomes.

Dictation MethodAnywhere, anytime via
Scribe Mobile - iPhone, Android, iPad or telephone
Tethered to computer
Dictation TypeWe can record the entire encounter while the physician focuses on the patient. The physician can leave the room without further work.Physician must interact with computer and interrupt the patient encounter and/or spend additional time after the patient visit making edits to the dictation.
