As Orthopaedic physicians across many sub-specialties see an increase in patient volume each year (on average 100 patients each week), increased notes and individual treatment plans are required to document each encounter. Subsequently, the time each user spends in their EHR needs to be utilized efficiently.
With each of those patient encounters averaging about 10-15 minutes in addition to the amount of time required to document each one, you have already put in a 40-hour work week before completing all that needs to be accomplished. Finding a solution that allows you to use your preferred EHR and your documentation time more efficiently is key to increased practice productivity outcomes. Medical speech recognition is the solution, as it is specifically designed to translate your voice into a rich narrative that goes directly into your EHR.
