In response to the need for the secure and efficient sharing of digital healthcare information, Globaltel Media and Scribe-Well today announced the Scribe-Well Medical Transcription Solution, a first of its kind innovation enabling medical transcriptionists to share digitized patient records and clinical notes along with embedded images such as X-rays, MRIs and CT scans, via SMS text messaging.
“Combining Scribe-Well’s leading medical transcription technology with Globaltel Media’s MedAlirti? and managed two-way SMS systems has enabled the creation of a cutting edge, patent-pending solution that will transform information sharing among healthcare providers,” said Robert Sanchez, CEO, Globaltel Media. “We are delighted to partner with Scribe-Well as we revolutionize transcription and information sharing for the medical industry in hospital, clinic, office and mobile environments.”
The Scribe-Well Medical Transcription Solution decreases the time from dictation to delivery by enabling the secure exchange of physician-dictated notes with rich media from any PC to any mobile phone and back, regardless of mobile carrier. The managed, interactive solution accelerates communications regarding patient care and treatment and streamlines coding, compensation and billing to help healthcare organizations operate more efficiently and cost-effectively.
“This innovative solution enables the rapid exchange of critical information in a new and unprecedented way,” said Dr. David Flood, M.D., orthopedic surgeon. “When every second counts, the ability to immediately send and receive images and video along with patient records across the health information ecosystem, whether in the office or offsite, can help speed patient diagnoses and improve quality of care.”
The Scribe-Well Medical Transcription Solution supports the guidelines and recommendations of the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI) and the Medical Transcription Industry Association (MTIA) regarding the accurate, secure capture of patient healthcare encounters.
“The healthcare documentation industry is entering a new phase of regulation and increased scrutiny as it works to meet the privacy, security and compliance challenges associated with exchanging medical information electronically and ultimately integrating these with EMR systems,” said Rewa Lazatin, CEO, Scribe-Well. “The Scribe-Well solution is highly secure and HIPAA compliant, allowing only authorized access to information and providing a complete audit trail in an office or a mobile PDA environment.”
