New EHR overlay uses voice recognition technology similar to Apple’s Siri
Salt Lake City, February 16, 2012 — ChartLogic, a leading national provider of EHR systems, today announced Stella, a voice-recognition overlay compatible with all leading EHR systems. Utilizing the same type of cloud-based natural language processing (NLP) employed in Apple’s Siri, Stella can greatly speed workflow for physicians by enabling them to use iPads, iPhones and other mobile devices with their hospital’s EHR system.
Stella is being demonstrated at HIMSS 12 at ChartLogic’s booth #14024. Stella is also one of the key technologies selected for use in the Health Story Project, which is located in the HIMSS 12 Interoperability Showcase.
“Stella leverages the speed and ease-of-use of voice dictation, which is preferred by many physicians.
Stella allows physicians to dictate, type, or touch (iPad) to review and create clinical documentation. While including a dictation option, it goes much further, using NLP to understand medical terminology and voice commands,” said Brad Melis, founder and executive vice president, ChartLogic.
Stella allows physicians to “bring their own device.” Working as an overlay application, it provides access via mobile devices to hospital EHR systems without the need to replace or revamp the current system.
Melis noted that Stella will help medical groups meet the proposed interoperability standards for meaningful use. For example, Stella will facilitate documenting and transmitting clinical care documents because it is the first cloud-based EHR application that natively incorporates the new CDA (common document architecture) Level 2 standard. This helps meet the proposed meaningful use requirement that EHRs have the capability of producing human readable (and computable) documents.
ChartLogic serves more than 2,000 physicians nationwide. ChartLogic EHR is certified for meaningful use and more than 200 ChartLogic customers have qualified for incentive payments.
