Cincinnati, OH December 3, 2013 – On the eve of its 100-year anniversary, Dolbey and Company, Inc., which began in 1914 as a partner and dealer for Thomas A. Edison’s dictation machine company, announces the issuance of a United States patent for “Systems and Methods for Providing an Electronic Dictation Interface.”
Dolbey’s patented technology is embodied in its award-winning Fusion SpeechEMR® product, which allows physicians to use speech recognition to seamlessly insert text into almost any free form text area within any Electronic Health Record (EHR) or third party application, without the need for specialized integration. Several user-friendly interface options are available to support different usages and to maximize screen real estate. “This patent distinguishes our application’s unique ability to easily integrate with an EHR application while at the same time offering powerful speech recognition related features and other modes of dictation capture,” stated Curtis Weeks, Director of Development, Dolbey and Company.
”Providing physicians with a tool that allows for immediate documentation into the patient record is critical to patient care. Finding the right technology and workflow is key to making a physician successful and productive with speech recognition,” says Bob Leslie, Senior Vice President at Dolbey and Company. Dr. Michael D. Bono, General Surgery, Hazleton General Hospital states, “The charts are completed the same day the patient is treated. I talk pretty fast and Dolbey keeps up with me. It has streamlined the way I document. I no longer have charting to do at the end of the day.”
