MedQuist Integrates Search Engine from Primordial with SpeechQ(TM) for Radiology
Date:12/1/2009

MT. LAUREL, N.J., Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MedQuist Inc. (Nasdaq: MEDQ), a leading provider of technology-enabled clinical documentation services, today announced that the radiology search tool from Primordial Design, Inc. has been integrated with SpeechQ for Radiology(TM), MedQuist's real-time speech recognition system. The solution is being demonstrated at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) convention November 29 through December 2.

Radiologists now have a toolbar on their SpeechQ screen to enable on-demand, nearly instantaneous "Google-like" search of all patient reports at their site, eliminating the need to interrupt workflow to open other applications. The application can also be customized by the user to access archived reports from the PACS or RIS systems as well as third-party radiology reference material and web sites. The PACS and RIS systems are not affected since the Primordial search engine manages its own indexing.

"During documentation, radiologists frequently want to consult information related to the work at hand, whether prior reports or reference data," said Chris Spring, Vice President of Product Management at MedQuist. "With this integration, SpeechQ for Radiology puts that information immediately at the radiologist's desktop."

Added Philip Zarboulas, Partner at Primordial Design, "The marriage of Primordial Search with MedQuist SpeechQ is a natural. Primordial Search takes advantage of SpeechQ's structured reports to enable radiologists to search for keywords related to the specific clinical areas designated in reports, thus retrieving more accurate, clinically focused results. What's more, because a site's entire report archive is instantly accessible, radiologists can retrieve priors more quickly and accurately than they can in PACS."
