MedQuist Announces Reseller Agreement With Clario
MT. LAUREL, N.J., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MedQuist Inc. (Nasdaq: MEDQ), a leading provider of clinical documentation workflow technology and services, and Clario Medical Imaging Inc. announced today they have agreed to expand their existing commercial relationship, to enable MedQuist to market and resell Clario’s zVision™ software. The current partnership has already produced the integration of zVision with MedQuist’s SpeechQ for Radiology™ real-time speech recognition solution.
zVision aggregates information from SpeechQ, existing radiology information systems (RIS) and PACS, and other sources, then builds a database precisely customized for the radiology practice. The combined information is then presented at the radiologist’s desktop in a single-view worklist format, to facilitate rapid workflow management and access to dictation using SpeechQ for Radiology.
Clario’s tool is particularly powerful in radiology environments in which RIS and PACS from multiple vendors are in use, since zVision permits convenient cross-platform data interfaces. It also offers critical results reporting, ability to select cases for peer review, and data retrieval to radiologists through a unique dashboard view.
“We are delighted to collaborate with Clario -- an innovative organization with a unique understanding of the needs that radiology teams require,” stated Peter Masanotti, President and CEO of MedQuist. “zVision’s intelligent, feature-rich design enhances SpeechQ for Radiology to deliver all of the valuable information radiologists need in one place at one time.”
MedQuist will be demonstrating this integration in its booth (#8713) at RSNA 2009 (November 29 through December 4 in Chicago).
