BRIT SYSTEMSí INTELLIGENT VOICE RECOGNITION, STRUCTURED REPORTING
SOLUTION DEBUTS AT SIIM

CHARLOTTE, NC and DALLAS, TX, June 4, 2009 Ė BRIT Systems announced today the introduction of BRIT SpeechWorks, an integrated Voice Recognition and Structured Reporting solution that understand natural language speaking to use words in the proper context, then translates words into data. BRIT SpeechWorks creates reports with built-in intelligence for real-time Structured Reporting and builds a database of information about the report that can be used to assist in coding, developing statistics or to mine information.

By using the latest Web technologies, BRIT SpeechWorks provides real-time workflow across a virtual environment with minimal user intervention. The worklist is derived from the DICOM storage of studies, an optional HL-7 interface or data entry into the workflow server. The application is flexible and allows users to report findings by dynamically selecting one or more combinations of natural language reporting, voice dictation via recording a file, typing or by signing the default, two-click normal report.

When used with the BRIT Vision multi-modality diagnostic workstation, the solution marries image viewing with reporting for an integrated solution from image acquisition through report distribution, including critical results reporting. With one click, key images or measurements marked on BRIT Vision are automatically inserted into the SpeechWorks report; key images in the report launch the study in BRIT Vision.

"BRITís focus has always been on efficiency, and combining an intelligent Voice Recognition with real-time Structured Reporting is a significant evolution for the industry," says Shelly Fisher, President, BRIT Systems. "We believe that marrying image viewing with reporting is revolutionary and provides another leap in radiology efficiency and reporting accuracy."

BRIT SpeechWorks is designed to meet the challenges of reporting for multiple facilities. Reports can be customized to appear differently to different users and are delivered via the Web, fax and/or email depending upon ordering physician and location preferences. The solution is a modular component of BRITís next-generation browser-based PACS, Roentgen Works. BRIT will be showcasing SpeechWorks at SIIM, Booth 329.
