Nuance Communications, Inc has announced the availability of the StructuRad radiology macro library for Dictaphone® PowerScribe®. StructuRad developed the library of radiology macros specifically for PowerScribe. This feature enables PowerScribe users to create reports by combining PowerScribe's voice edit features with StructuRad's macro library, a quick and convenient way to accelerate the reporting process by putting a rich set of templates at the radiologist's finger-tips.  

Peter Durlach, senior vice president, marketing and product strategy, Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions, Nuance explains, "By offering PowerScribe users StructuRad macros, radiologists will have the ability to invoke the combined power of StructuRad macros and Dictaphone physician self-editing tools to save time, improve report quality and achieve great cost savings."

StructuRad macros for PowerScribe provide a library of more than 900 standard and uncommon report templates derived from its proprietary radiology knowledgebase. The macro library of report templates has been created to utilize PowerScribe voice edit features and permits PowerScribe users to create reports by calling a macro and making simple edits. Having a standardized macro library embedded in PowerScribe improves report quality and consistency, and dramatically enhances radiologist productivity.

Through the combination of highly accurate speech recognition software and powerful physician self-editing tools, PowerScribe dramatically reduces report turnaround time in even the most demanding medical environments. By automating the clinical documentation process through its Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions, Nuance aims to eliminate the high cost and long turnaround time associated with the manual transcription of patient notes, currently a $10 billion industry in North America alone.

StructuRad's macro library is available as part of PowerScribe versions 4.7 and 4.8. It is available as an optional package that can be purchased as an add-on by existing customers or bundled as a package for new customers.
