ZyDoc Medical Transcription has formed an alliance with Topcon Anka Systems to offer transcription services that are tightly integrated with Topcon Anka Systems imaging system, EyeRoute. Both systems are ASP based and work from any internet-connected computer.
With no change in work habits, doctors can dictate from any telephone to the TelDoc system or utilize handheld professional digital recorders.
The dictation and records are tracked on the ZyDoc TrackDoc internet site, similar to UPS packages, then transcribed and returned within the required turnaround time. The highly accurate transcribed reports are available on the web. After review, they are automatically linked to the EyeRoute system as part of the patient record. The comprehensive records and imaging studies will be available on the internet for referring physicians.
James Maisel, MD, chairman of ZyDoc and founder of the Retina Group of New York, said: This alliance offers doctors substantial advantages over current solutions. This solution streamlines the adoption of electronic records, is rapidly implemented, incurs no change in work habits, and requires minimal training. Ophthalmologists will be able to increase efficiency of generation and management of patient records including improved communication with referring physicians. The internet based records are especially valued by multisite practices.
Ken Lee, executive vice president of Topcon Anka Systems and the co-founder of Anka Systems, said: We are very excited about the strategic relationship with ZyDoc Medical Transcription. Working together, we can be more effective in integrating our imaging and connectivity solutions with seamless documentation and provide tremendous benefits to the doctors. These benefits will incorporate innovative technologies and lower operational costs leading to improved value for the physician. Together, we focus on the advancing needs for eye care practitioners to capture, store and retrieve digital imaging information that is increasingly being managed within the eye care practice and complement it with documentation for a complete electronic medical record. We will provide ophthalmologists with full featured networked imaging and reporting capabilities.
