  1. 1. Introducing the Next Generation of Voice: Voice Enabling Clinical Workflows +
  2. 2. Introducing VoiceFirst: Intuitive Care Delivery VoiceFirst™ is a revolutionary voiceenabled solution that greatly reduces the time clinicians spend at keyboard terminals, while enhancing patient interactions. For the first time ever, clinicians will literally be able to “have a conversation with their EMR” while being completely mobile and free to focus on patient care. VoiceFirst pairs advanced speech recognition technology with existing EMR systems to streamline workflows and make care delivery by physicians, nurses and other clinicians more efficient, more intuitive and more personal.

  3. 3. The Evolution Over the last decade, Electronic Medical Record systems have had a profoundly positive impact on healthcare. They standardize records, reduce errors, create efficiencies and replace piles of paper charts with instantly accessible electronic files. But, EMRs also require much of a clinician’s time and may distract from personal contact with the patient. To further improve outcomes and restore human interaction, clinicians must be empowered to spend more time with patients and less with computers. Technology that augments the power of EMRs and further optimizes the clinician’s performance will ultimately benefit both patients and staff. 412-206-1225 | www.voicefirstsolutions.com

By increasing clinician mobility and simplifying their workflows, VoiceFirst increases the time they spend directly providing patient care, improving patient perceptions of their experience.

VoiceFirst’s intuitive, interactive voice capabilities immediately make your clinical staff more efficient by enabling realtime documentation in a more natural workflow. No longer tied to computers at nursing stations or in the hallway, staff throughput can increase to new levels. Elevate Quality of Care Healthcare researchers agree that more time spent on direct patient care correlates with better outcomes. Adding “data overload” to the chaos of an acute care environment can increase distractions and reduce clinicians’ ability to drive quality outcomes. VoiceFirst empowers your staff to provide the highest quality care possible by providing on-demand access to essential information and simplifying the documentation process. Raise Clinical Team Satisfaction Clinicians largely enter healthcare to spend time with patients. Activities that deter them from patient care often increase their frustration and lower morale. By simplifying complicated workflows and making technology more usable, VoiceFirst enhances the satisfaction of your entire care team. 412-206-1225 | www.voicefirstsolutions.com
