Zealand Region in Denmark First to Adopt CSC Speech Recognition
CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced that the Zealand Region in Denmark has become the first health authority in the country to implement CSC's OPUS Speech Recognition solution. This solution will enable healthcare professionals working within the region's ten hospitals to transition from dictating notes on tape for transcription, to a system that automatically transcribes the notes directly into a patient's electronic medical record (EMR).
This real-time method of updating patient EMR's improves treatment and care by ensuring clinical decisions are always based on electronic records that are as accurate and up-to-date as possible. It also relieves busy hospitals of the time-consuming alternative of manual transcription and the risk of inaccuracies.
The integration between OPUS and the speech recognition software is based on the component SpeechEditor from the Danish subcontractor, Max Manus - the Scandinavian partner of the American speech recognition specialists Nuance.
