eScription is the new back-end voice recognition dictation and transcription system which Island Health is piloting in November 2014. The full implementation for all users will take place in early December 2014.
Here is some important information to know if you are a clinician who currently dictates through Fusion and has Transcription Services transcribing your reports:
- There will be virtually no changes at the front-end. Clinicians will be asked to identify if the services were for an inpatient or outpatient.
- Once the system is fully implemented clinicians will no longer be required to use leading zeros in front of MRNs.
