By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor
Intelerad Medical Systems, a provider of medical imaging PACS and workflow solutions, just launched its Multi-Method Reporting module, along with releasing IntelePACS 4.3. The newly released IntelePACS 4.3 offers seamless access to voice and speech recognition in their reporting workflow to radiologists, according to a press release.
Intelerad’s Multi-Method Reporting improves both voice and speech recognition by dramatically improving the way radiologists read and report studies. The Multi-Method Reporting combines dictation, voice recognition and structured report templates together in a single, streamlined interface and workflow.
“We have deployed a limited trial release of the new Multi-method Reporting module to a few customers and the feedback has been very positive,” said Rick Rubin, founder and chief engineering officer of Intelerad, in a statement.
“Radiologists are now free to choose how they report each study, depending on the case and personal preference. The result is faster than ever report turnaround times, as well as improved consistency and quality of the report,” Rubin added.
M*Modal’s Speech Understanding technology adapts to the physician’s workflow and speech patterns. It combines advanced speech recognition and natural language understanding technologies.
M*Modal’s platform goes beyond mainstream speech recognition capabilities because the semantic and syntactic meaning of the dictation is recognized. Physician intent is recognized and the system adapts to virtually all dialects, accents, speaking styles and dictation habits.
“Our initial experience with Intelerad's Multi-Method Reporting has exceeded our expectations: The speech recognition engine has proven adept, and our workflow more efficient and faster,” said Mark Awh, president of Radsource, an IntelePACS customer specializing in musculoskeletal and neurological MRI.
