Telemedicine and Speech-to-Text
( MEDAS SOLUTIONS )
During the pandemic, MEDAS has been developing technology to help patients and clinicians with two products: Telemedicine and Speech-to-text.
Telemedicine refers to the practice of caring for patients remotely when the provider and patient are not physically together. Modern technology has enabled doctors to consult with patients through video. MEDAS’ technology combines a professional and engaging experience for patients with best-in-class workflows for providers.
Speech recognition technology has a significant impact on the healthcare profession. The most significant benefits include:
Saving time and improving productivity
Medical professionals tend to have to spend a large portion of their day completing paperwork. That’s where speech recognition technologies can have an impact. It’s much faster to speak out notes than to write them. Medical professionals can do this by speaking into a recording device. Speech recognition technology will translate spoken words to text on the computer.
Since many clinicians struggle to find time to complete paperwork, this can be very helpful and efficient. Instead of taking time after hours, clinicians can quickly record their voice and instantly have diagnoses, treatment records and other important notes documented and stored in the system.
Better Quality Care
Saving time on paperwork allows medical professionals to spend more time treating patients, improving overall patient care. When clinicians don’t have to manually prepare reports, they have more time for their primary duty – treating patients.
