What are Speech-to-Text Medical Solutions?
Speech-to-text medical solutions allow doctors to step away from the computer and look up from their notepad to engage more intently with the patient. Some of these speech-to-text solutions integrate right into an exam room, where a physician can dictate their notes as they perform exams and interact with a patient. Other physicians use speech-to-text as post-exam note taking aids, dictating charts, patient information and session notes into their EHR workflow.

Over the last few years, speech-to-text medical solutions have become many physicians’ preferred note taking solution. They work by capturing a doctor's voice and translating their spoken words into written text using a microphone and advanced dictation software.


How are they used?

Speech-to-text medical solutions allow doctors to step away from the computer and look up from their notepad to engage more intently with the patient. Some of these speech-to-text solutions integrate right into an exam room, where a physician can dictate their notes as they perform exams and interact with a patient. Other physicians use speech-to-text as post-exam note taking aids, dictating charts, patient information and session notes into their EHR workflow.

The most advanced speech-to-text medical solutions on the market today are those that aim for a more robust solution. These medical solutions are designed to integrate into both the exam room and into EHR workflows. The goal of these products is to remove the manual note taking documentation processes and replace them with speech-to-text technology that can be prompted and spoken to.


Limitations of Speech-to-Text Medical Solutions

These solutions have proven to be more cost effective and slightly more time sensitive than a traditional scribe, but show limitations when it comes to scalability and ability to overcome more nuanced hurdles like multiple speakers and accents.

Ultimately, however, the biggest hang up is in the fact that these speech-to-text medical solutions have simply replaced the manual writing processes with summarizing, dictating and editing. They remove the hassle of writing and typing, but don’t significantly offset the ultimate burden of documentation. The struggle to unload that administrative weight still persists.


DeepScribe vs. Speech-to-Text Medical Solutions

This is why DeepScribe is using expertly designed technology to attack the persisting issue of documentation. Our AI-powered medical scribe is simply more robust than even the most advanced speech-to-text medical solutions. DeepScribe ambiently listens to physician-patient interactions and transcribes the notes in real time. It’s fully customizable, and capable of taking on multiple speakers and different accents, all while filtering out irrelevant information and populating the relevant medical information into any EHR.

Rather than alleviating the burden of note-taking and dictation just to create more, different, work in its place, DeepScribe exists to provide greater accuracy, true time-savings, and an honest aid to help you with documentation.
