Lake Success, NY, September 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Voicebrook, the leading provider of integrated speech recognition and digital dictation solutions in Anatomic Pathology (AP), today announces that it will be exhibiting at CAP ’10 The Pathologists’ Meeting™ at The Hyatt Regency Chicago. The Conference is being held September 26th through the 29th. Members of the Voicebrook team will be available in Booth 623 for product discussions and demonstrations.
Voicebrook’s VoiceOver® Enterprise speech recognition and digital dictation solution is currently integrated with all major Anatomic Pathology (AP) information systems, and is deployed in over 125 hospitals and laboratories across the United States and Canada.
As part of a new agreement with the College of American Pathologists (CAP) to license and distribute the CAP electronic Cancer Checklists (eCC), Voicebrook is offering this content with full dictation and navigation support as part of the VoiceOver® Enterprise Template Center. Content and resulting dictations can easily be incorporated into any AP system as part of the underlying Pathology report.
"Our agreement to license the CAP eCC will provide Voicebrook customers with a powerful option for rapid deployment of cancer checklists, with data entry options for keyboard, mouse and voice," said Joe Desiderio, President of Voicebrook.
Separately, Voicebrook announces the initiation of a collaboration with CAP STS (SNOMED Terminology Solutions™), a division of the CAP, on the use of VoiceOver Enterprise as a speech recognition "voice command center." As part of this effort, Voicebrook's solutions will be made available on the CAP Diagnostic Work Station (DWS).
"We look forward to working with the CAP team to demonstrate additional input models to further capitalize on technology enhancements we are developing that combine speech recognition, structured data entry and voice-driven, workflow enhancements," added Desiderio. "We have been heavily involved in 'voice-optimizing' Pathology workflow with our clients and vendor partners. The collaboration with the CAP STS team will expand this effort, particularly in new application areas that focused on process optimization and digital pathology."
The DWS offers pathologists a platform for a robust, collaborative exchange of clinical information such as: the patient’s electronic health record (EHR), real-time consultation, digital imaging, structured pathology reporting, clinical decision support; and online resources and reference material. The DWS platform will speed the diagnostic process by consolidating clinical, imaging, and research information into a single, secure environment.
The envisioned final product will be a vendor-neutral heterogeneous environment that allows for customization by the pathology team. Currently, vendors provide EHR and digital imaging information displayed on the work station. A vendor product inclusion in the prototype is not a CAP product endorsement.
“The CAP’s Diagnostic Work Station allows multi-disciplinary clinicians to share images and information with colleagues outside of their local environment. It enhances collaboration, streamlining the diagnostic process and ultimately improving patient care,” said Kevin Donnelly, CAP STS vice president and general manager. “Our DWS collaboration with vendors offering robust diagnostic tools and applications strengthens the DWS concept for the fast-evolving and innovative field of digital pathology.”
