Emdat Launches DaRT™ To Integrate EMRs With Their Transcription Platform

One of R+B Sten-Tel's technology partners, Emdat's has launched DaRT™ which is a solution allowing physicians to use EMRs without changing their workflow.  Also known as Discrete accurate Reportable Transcription, a solution that seamlessly integrates electronic medical records (EMRs) with Emdat’s web-based transcription platform.  DaRT is Emdat's version of DRT (Discrete Reportable Transcription).

Healthcare providers can populate EMRs more efficiently by using information entered by transcriptionists rather than physicians. This allows doctors to experience the benefits of electronic records without doing time-consuming data entry that can reduce their productivity and infringe on the time they spend with their patients.

With DaRT, physicians continue to dictate as usual. Discrete information in the resulting transcription is tagged and uploaded to the EMR. The tagged data – Chief Complaint, Medical History, Family History, etc – populates the fields of the EMR as if it were entered directly by the doctor, allowing medical personnel to conveniently parse and search patient records.

Emdat’s team of experienced interface specialists developed DaRT as a way to provide accurate, reliable transmission of data regardless of which EMR vendor a hospital or clinic uses. This new technology, along with Emdat’s Qualified Text™, which reduces the number of lines a transcriptionist has to type, increases the value brought to medical providers.

R+B Sten-Tel will be attending and exhibiting at the 2010 Pennsylvania Health Information Management Association's (PHIMA) state conference on May 10 - 11.  Come visit our booth to learn more about how Discrete Reportable Transcription (DRT) can help your organization by fully utilizing clinicians by dictation while still delivering structured data into your EMR to meet Meaningful Use and other requirements.

Pennsylvania MGMA Annual Conference

R+B Sten-Tel will be attending and exhibiting at the Pennsylvania Annual Conference in Philadelphia this Thursday, May 6th.  If you plan on attending, come by our booth to learn about how Discrete Reportable Transcription (DRT) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) can assist in your transition to Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and navigate to Meaningful Use.

MTIA 2010 Annual Conference in Daytona Beach

Peter Minio and Richard Blum from R+B Sten-Tel attended the MTIA 2010 Annual Conference in Daytona Beach last week.  The topics varied, but centered around transcription technologies and how as an industry we have an opportunity to accelerate EMR adoption and bring new value to the physician community.  Most notably, there was a discussion on how Natural Language Processing (NLP) can meet Meaningful Use and accelerate HIT adoption.  Like Discrete Reportable Transcription (DRT), NLP is the next wave of technology to meet the growing needs physicians have due to the shortfalls in EMR technology as well as the increased requirements for reporting and structured data for Meaningful Use.
