Just What the Doctor Ordered

Using Web Technology and Voice Recognition to manage rising costs and boost healthcare productivity..

Every year you can expect healthcare executives to put the same few technologies and applications high on their to-do lists. Document imaging, computer-based patient records, and handheld computers are just a few of the perennial favorites.

This year there's a new technology at the top of the list--voice recognition. Nearly one third of the IS professionals attending this year's Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Conference, held in February in Orlando, FL, said that they would likely invest in voice recognition technology during the next 12. months. Voice recognition finished ahead of information appliances (18 percent), Web-enabled applications (14 percent), and handheld personal digital assistants(PDAs) for workgroups (12 percent).

Though not specifically reflected in this data, the big opportunity for VARs and systems integrators is to package several of these technologies into a single compelling solution. Think, for example, of a computerized patient record system that runs on mobile computers and accepts voice input, or transcription services that uses voice recognition and Internet access to keep costs low.

In this rundown of two of the hottest segments in the healthcare market-voice recognition and the Internet, we'll show you why there's never been a better time than now to sell solutions using these technologies.

Newfangled technologies provide great potential for streamlining the practice of medicine
