Anthelio Healthcare Solutions of Dallas, Texas has awarded a contract to MedQuist Holdings Inc., a premier provider of integrated clinical documentation solutions for the U.S. healthcare system.
A provider of comprehensive healthcare information technology services and business process solutions, Anthelio selected MedQuist based on previous experience with the robust speech recognition capabilities and efficient workflow features built into DEP.
As per the contract, Anthelio will now implement MedQuist's DocQment Enterprise Platform in eight of its clients' hospitals across five states for use by its medical transcriptionists.
MedQuist's DocQment Enterprise Platform is the industry-leading speech recognition and clinical documentation workflow platform. Existing technology currently in use by Anthelio will be replaced by DEP.
To create and manage clinical documentation across their enterprise, MedQuist-Anthelio clients, such as Detroit Medical Center, already use DEP.
"Choosing the right technology partner can be complex and challenging. MedQuist made the entire process simple and cost effective," noted Dianne Summers, National Operations Director, Anthelio Healthcare Solutions, in a press release.
"We've seen MedQuist's people and platform in action and experienced the speed to value, innovation and support they deliver. It's a winning combination that enables us to quickly go to work for our customers."
MedQuis not only offers healthcare facilities with technology and services but also has a large number of B2B relationships. Companies supplying Health Information Management expertise and improvement solutions, with DEP as the backbone, are able to provide results reporting, advanced speech, workflow and management tools to better run their businesses.
Efficiency, streamlined workflow and cost reductions are just some of the benefits healthcare institutions realize as a result of an integrated MedQuist-partner relationship.
"We're proud to expand our relationship with Anthelio and look forward to bringing clinical transformation capabilities to an extensive group of health organizations across the country", said Peter Masanotti, President and Chief Executive Officer of MedQuist.
