Voice recognition software cuts radiologists’ report TAT

Prior to a performance improvement project, the radiology report turnaround time (TAT) at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center was 18 hours from completion of the exam to production of a report signed by a radiologist.  The answer proved to be voice recognition software, which cut the TAT to under 20 minutes in the emergency department, and to just over half an hour for inpatients.  The voice recognition software also virtually eliminated transcription costs, from the pre-implementation cost of $30,000/month to a post-implementation $300/month.
