In this presentation we will explore healthcare documentation best practices in the setting of speech recognition technology—how to make this technology work to our greatest advantage. It is necessary to understand and embrace SR technology so that we can develop new strategies and approaches to promote the highest degrees of success in medicolegal documentation. For our role in healthcare documentation, there is a distinct contrast to traditional transcription, necessitating a skillset shift from the constant motion of expert typing to the more analytical, immediate identification and correction of the inevitable flaws in speech recognized text. Human intervention is always going to be required because of like sounds in the English language as well as the arrays of dialects and speech patterns. This presentation offers definitions of that intervention in fine detail.
1. Understand how the technology of speech recognition works.
2. Understand the impact we have on how well the technology works.
3. Know how to determine what to edit and when to edit in recognized drafts.
4. Embrace skillset shift from traditional transcription to editing of recognized drafts.
