MT. LAUREL, N.J., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MedQuist Inc. (Nasdaq: MEDQ), a leading provider of technology-enabled clinical documentation services, is featuring a new solution this week at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference in Chicago. Called SpeechQ VTB for Radiology, the product leverages SpeechQ(TM), the company's real-time interactive speech recognition application used by thousands of radiologists. MedQuist has integrated SpeechQ with a robust web-based coding and billing platform to make completed radiology reports immediately available for processing, shortening the entire billing cycle.
This highly automated workflow permits rapid conversion of dictation to text with immediate radiologist electronic signature, seamless passing of the report to the coding platform, and use of computer-assisted coding software that identifies relevant information in the text and recommends code assignments for human review.
