SR Errors—Funny...or Fatal?

Imagine your medical record without healthcare documentation specialists...

Speech recognition (SR) technology is like “autocorrect” on your smartphone...it is far from perfect. Healthcare documentation specialists are auditing and correcting medical records to ensure their accuracy and completeness. Below are examples the specialists caught in draft medical records produced by SR―some very funny, while others are potentially fatal. Employ healthcare documentation specialists for quality patient care documentation.
