Providers save hours each day on patient documentation
(Boston, MA, August 15, 2014) – NoteSwift Inc., announced today the availability of NoteSwift™ for Allscripts TouchWorks. NoteSwift is the bridge between the EHR and Dragon Medical Practice Edition (DMPE) and interprets speech either as commands that drive the TouchWorks interface, or as content to be inserted into the patient note. NoteSwift significantly reduces the time a provider spends creating a patient note – often by half – and virtually eliminates mouse clicks – one of the major pain points physicians state impedes EHR use.
New SwiftNav™ technology within NoteSwift facilitates navigation through the patient note. No more clicking through multiple screens or on check boxes – simply say the name of the section of the note or item to be selected and NoteSwift automatically takes you there or ticks the box. The need for keyboard and mouse is virtually unnecessary in most sections of the note as providers can dictate both structured and narrative text, and, due to the advanced integration with TouchWorks EHR – NoteSwift is able to discern what parts of the dictated speech will be automatically entered in specific fields.
The provider can create a patient note that contains all relevant and billable data, quickly and easily and experience increased satisfaction with the EHR and DMPE.
“Making EHRs easier to use while minimizing the time it takes to create patient notes is critical for the successful adoption of EHRs,” said NoteSwift’s president and CEO, Wayne Crandall. “Additionally, we have heard continuously from providers that the number of mouse clicks it takes to complete a note is excessive and now with NoteSwift, we reduce that by over 90% – just say what you want to do and NoteSwift takes action”.
NoteSwift allows the provider to utilize speech recognition in a more intuitive way without having to learn everything about the technology they are using. The provider can navigate within the note, speak the narrative as well as the structured data, and NoteSwift does all the heavy lifting. The note is completed at point of care in minutes, with minimal clicking, and no third party is needed for transcription.
Tested and certified by Allscripts, NoteSwift for TouchWorks supports meaningful use guidelines, reduces mouse clicks, increases documentation accuracy and speeds the data entry process.
NoteSwift is dedicated to improving physician workflow with innovative technology solutions. The company was founded by Dr. Chris Russell, a software engineer-turned-physician who recognized that speech recognition was an unfulfilled technology in medicine with great promise. NoteSwift currently offers speech recognition enhancement solutions for several EHR’s including Aprima, Amazing Charts, Allscripts Pro, and Allscripts TouchWorks.
