Giving your physicians an iPad® dictation option should be standard procedure. With Silent Type, it is.

- Using Silent Type’s iPad® dictation app saves physicians time and hassle
With the popularity of the iPad increasing among physicians, take advantage of the benefits these devices offer to documentation dictation with Silent Type’s iPad® dictation app.
Why do physicians dictate poorly? They often move from patient-to-patient or hospital-to-hospital so quickly that they don’t have time to sit down and dictate. When dictation is rushed or incomplete, documentation suffers, and charts become non-compliant. When documentation is delayed, cash flow suffers. In addition, doctors will need to provide more specific documentation once the ICD-10 conversion is complete. How will they find the time to document more completely?
Silent Type offers physicians an iPad® dictation app, which fits easily into physicians’ current workflow. With the Silent Type iPad® dictation app, doctors can dictate, save and transfer audio files from their iPad® without having to synchronize with a desktop computer or juggle multiple logins. This app can reduce the time commitment a physician needs to devote to dictation because the physician can dictate how, where or when he wants.
The iPad® dictation app from Silent Type is just one of our time-saving mobile dictation tools. Our clients can also offer their physicians iPhone®, iPod® Touch and BlackBerry® apps. These apps record, store, transfer and save dictation, all with a few swipes of the thumb. And yes, we still provide standard telephone dictation or voice recording dictation.
The Silent Type apps allow doctors to do all of the following:
- Dictate and store case reports for all patients, regardless of where patients are being treated
- Send dictation to Silent Type for transcription any time, using a 3G or Wi-Fi connection
- Save patient demographics on the device
- Use one login to dictate files to multiple facilities
Completed transcriptions can be viewed on a facility’s electronic system or by logging in to STARS® (Silent Type Automated Records System). The Silent Type iOS app is available on iTunes® for $4.99. The Silent Type BlackBerry® app will soon be available on BlackBerry’s AppWorld® for $4.99. All app versions are HIPAA compliant.
