When you work with Silent Type, you benefit from three decades of transcription and documentation management experience. In fact, working with us is so easy, you’ll hardly notice we’re there. Here’s the documentation process we’ve spent 30 years perfecting:
Step 2 – Assignment: Our voice server organizes the dictation files, matches the voice data with ADT data from your Hospital Information System, and makes the combined files available to transcriptionists dedicated to your account.
Standard Process (steps 3-5)
Step 3 (standard) – Transcription: Silent Type transcriptionists type your dictation and deliver it to our transcription system. Our transcriptionists exhibit accuracy rates of better than 99 percent.
Step 4 (standard) – Archiving and delivery: Following a quality assurance process, completed transcription is sent securely to your Hospital Information System. Copies of this documentation are stored in STARS® (Silent Type Automated Records System) and are backed up in our data safe.
Step 5 (standard) – Distribution: Documentation is made available from your Hospital Information System to physicians, departments (such as Health Information Management) and information systems (such as Electronic Medical Records Systems). Approved staff may also access this same documentation through STARS via secure internet connection. If necessary, these clinical notes can be printed and stored.
Voice-to-Text Process (steps 3-4)
Step 3 (voice-to-text) – Processing: Silent Type’s voice-to-text engine translates your dictation into text, then sends it to the physician for review, or, if you choose, to our transcriptionists for verification.
Step 4 (voice-to-text) – Archiving and delivery: Completed transcription is sent securely to your Hospital Information System. In addition, copies of this documentation are stored in STARS® (Silent Type Automated Records System) and are backed up in our data safe.
