FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ZyDoc Presents Ophthalmic Transcription with EHR Insertion Options at the 117th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology
“ZyDoc’s secure web-based transcription services allow physicians to work efficiently and dictate their reports, even if they are using an EHR.”
New Orleans, November 15, 2013 – ZyDoc, an Islandia, NY-based medical informatics company, will present its latest web-based transcription solutions for ophthalmologists at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), Booth 1400. The AAO conference, now in its 117th year, runs November 16-19, 2013 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans.
A leader in web-based transcription and related technologies for ophthalmology for over a decade, ZyDoc offers customized documentation workflow options including ZyDoc’s award-winning TrackDoc e-transcription platform, Philips SpeechExec Enterprise voice productivity solutions, and MediSapien structured reporting for analytics and EHR insertion.
According to James Maisel, MD, ZyDoc Chairman, and a retinal specialist, “ZyDoc’s secure web-based transcription services allow physicians to work efficiently and dictate their reports, even if they are using an EHR. Doctors can dictate via handheld recorder, smartphone or tablet, or any telephone, then electronically approve the transcription and have it moved into their EHR system as structured data that meets Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirements. We are also able to convert legacy paper-based records and existing semi-structured EHR data to comply with the new standards.”
Dr. Maisel is a frequent guest speaker on innovation and emerging technology in medical knowledge management, including speech recognition, natural language processing, and data mining. He recently presented research on “Using Unstructured Data Sources for Analytics in a Retinal Practice” at the 2013 American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) in Toronto; and “Analytics for ACO Patient Management” at the AHIMA 85th Annual Convention Innovation Pavilion; and will also present two natural language processing (NLP) related talks at the upcoming Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 99th Annual Meeting in Chicago. More information is available at www.zydoc.com regarding these presentations and upcoming ZyDoc exhibitions.
