MedQuist Introduces SpeechQ for Radiology Integrated with RadWorkFlow

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- At RSNA 2008 (Nov. 30-Dec. 4 in Chicago), MedQuist Inc. (Nasdaq: MEDQ) is introducing a powerful integration between SpeechQ for Radiology(TM), a top-ranked interactive front-end speech recognition application, and RadWorkFlow(R), a robust workflow solution from Inland Imaging LLC.

RadWorkFlow offers an efficient, simplified, and consolidated view into multi-site, multi-system reading environments. RadWorkFlow is designed to accelerate and track radiology studies from time-of-order through interpretation, allowing organizations access to critical operational data. RadWorkFlow accepts studies and data from multiple RIS and PACS, and logically queues those studies to the appropriate radiologist for interpretation based on site-defined rules. STAT orders are accelerated through the queue, and the issue of "lost" studies is eliminated.

For those radiologists who support multiple facilities and often have to access patient images in different PACS, RadWorkFlow provides a single view of the studies awaiting their interpretation across this disparate environment. This streamlines the radiologists' workflow, delivering improved efficiencies and results. When used in combination with SpeechQ, the radiologists' report turnaround time is significantly reduced (as the speech recognized report is immediately reviewed and signed by the radiologist, and then routed through RadWorkFlow back to the requesting organization and physician).

Kathleen Wilson, COO at Inland Imaging, states, "RadWorkFlow used in conjunction with SpeechQ has allowed us to cut report turnaround times to hospital fast-track ED patients by 75 percent."

Those same comments are echoed by Elaine Couture, COO of Providence Health and Services: "Four years ago, we had 45,000 visits in the Emergency Department. Today, we have more than 80,000. RadWorkFlow has helped us manage that increase without adding staff. The ability to seamlessly move studies around to available radiologists has cut report turnaround times, and ensures that critical diagnostic tests are done and interpreted quickly."

The integration between SpeechQ and RadWorkFlow saves multiple manual steps in the radiology study process, and dramatically shortens the time to report delivery - increasing productivity and minimizing radiologist frustration.
