Leading Arizona Radiological Group Selects MedQuist for Speech Recognition Solution
Date:3/6/2008

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., March 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MedQuist Inc. (Pink Sheets: MEDQ.PK) announces that Radiology Ltd. of Tucson, Arizona, has selected SpeechQ for Radiology(TM) as its front-end interactive speech recognition solution. Named one of the Top 25 "most connected healthcare facilities" by Health Imaging & IT magazine in 2006, Radiology Ltd. is one of the largest physician-owned practices in Tucson, with more than 45 radiologists processing more than 1,000 patients per day in its fully digital network.

According to Chip Hardesty, executive director of Radiology Ltd., "We looked at a number of options for speech recognition, and our radiologists saw SpeechQ as the most accurate technology, which would mean less editing. We also felt that SpeechQ offered the best alignment with our other technology development plans."

SpeechQ for Radiology is tightly integrated with the AMICAS Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), which Radiology Ltd. currently uses. The integration allows for improved workflow for the radiologists by streamlining the transfer of information from AMICAS directly to SpeechQ for Radiology. Radiology Ltd. is also currently migrating its Radiology Information System (RIS) to AMICAS.

"The support of virtualization technology in SpeechQ version 1.2 is going to be a big plus for us, as it will allow us to save money and resources, as well as have a failover strategy that works," says Hardesty. "We process 200,000 reports annually; with SpeechQ, we hope to end our reliance on outsourcing above and beyond our own transcriptionists. We know SpeechQ can get us there and help realize our return-on-investment goals."

Chris Spring, MedQuist senior product manager for Speech Recognition Solutions, notes, "With its completely digital practice of radiologists who are spread out geographically, Radiology Ltd. found SpeechQ for Radiology to be a natural fit. We look forward to working with this forward-thinking organization."
