Hospital receives award

September 01, 2008

Washington County Hospital has received an award for saving $1 million in transcription costs. The Million Dollar Savings Award is from eScription Inc.

The eScription software used at Washington County Hospital sets up a unique profile for each physician by the type of report he or she is dictating and the vocabulary used in that report. After the initial training period, the software can understand the physician's dictation and will create a complete typed document. The hospital's 16 medical transcriptionists then use the software to edit the document using shortcuts and command keys.
