Facing severe budget constraints, healthcare facilities are searching for more cost effective methods to complete their electronic health records. Although there have been many technological advances, manual data entry, in house transcription costs and slow turnaround times still weigh heavily on healthcare budgets.

VocalTek provides solutions which incorporate speech recognition directly into any given application allowing doctors to easily dictate the narrative portions of their medical reports and visualize the text in real-time allowing them to avoid manual data entry and bypass transcription services altogether.

Having recently been retained by the Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) and the Centre Universitaire de Santé McGill (CUSM), Montreal’s two new super-hospitals, VocalTek will be deploying its dictation, transcription and speech recognition solution for nearly 1000 clinicians with over four hundred of them using speech recognition to complete their medical reports.
