NoteSwift has announced the availability of NoteSwift for AllScripts MyWay™ electronic health record solution. NoteSwift works with (and requires) Dragon Medical Practice Edition from Nuance. According to the company a physician using the product can saves up to thirty minutes per day on patient documentation.
Physicians using NoteSwift can capture an entire patient visit in AllScripts MyWay from start to finish using speech recognition. Advanced technology enables a continuous dictation style that expedites the documentation process by minimizing pointing and clicking, and eliminating typing for most patient visits.
“EHRs improve many aspects of a medical practice, but can cause frustration for physicians because they increase the time spent documenting patient visits due to all the pointing, clicking, and typing that’s required,” said Chris Russell, MD, founder, NoteSwift LLC. “Dragon has helped automate the input, but only in a batch mode. NoteSwift significantly improves the input process and allows physicians to spend more time with patients by enabling them to use a familiar, traditional dictation style to input patient information into structured fields.”
NoteSwift, which is also available for AllScripts Professional EHR™, supports the requirements of the HITECH Act, which offers federal stimulus funds to physicians that show “meaningful use” of EHRs in their practices.
