Speech Recognition

Speech Recognition

Spantel's Hospital Direct™ transcription platform is seemlessly integrated with speech recognition technology to deliver the most comprehensive and adoptable solution for creating highly accurate, structured, encoded, and shareable clinical documents.

Spantel’s speech understanding services transforms the dictation into a Meaningful Clinical Document, automatically structured and encoded according to the healthcare provider's documentation rules. Our solution combines speech recognition and natural language understanding to capture and comprehend clinical information from dictation, transforming it directly into actionable data that easily integrates into existing EHRs and allows for advanced functions not currently possible with conventional transcribed text reports.

Seamless Integration

Spantel has greatly enhanced the entire workflow, profiling, reporting and monitoring systems of the Hospital Direct program to offer the use of backend speech recognition services. Hospitals and MTSO are able to simultaneously manage traditional and speech recognized work, with their varying operational and reporting needs, from a single job monitor screen. New learning for incorporating these operational upgrades to your program have been made easy and automated to the maximum. The end result is efficient, cost effective, and seamless deployment of speech recognition as an optional production method supported through Hospital Direct’s single workflow management and reporting system.

By working closely with our clients to establish voice profiles that consider the unique dictating habits of their system users, Spantel ensures that the documents routed through the speech recognition engine deliver superior production cost results for the complete job cycle.

The additional benefits are the ability to provide structured and encoded documents that use the HL-7 CDA (Clinical Document Architecture) format.
