Diamond Bar, CA, United States, 2011/08/30 - A no cost digital dictation iPhone application is now available thru the Apple App Store from FutureNet. The no cost cloud-based computing SaaS offering gives healthcare providers an alternative to expensive dedicated digital hand-held recording devices.
FutureNet announced today the availability of their free Fnet Recorder digital dictation iPhone app for download off the Apple App Store. Launched to compliment the company’s medical dictation and transcription product lines, the cloud-based SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) offering eliminates the need for traditional digital hand-held recording devices which typically sell for nearly five hundred dollars each. The Fnet Recorder enables iPhone users to digitally record high quality audio files that are automatically compressed and encrypted before being uploaded into the FutureNet cloud for subsequent secure access through any internet enabled computer or smart phone.
“Our users have had free smart phone access to search for, review and electronically sign medical reports for some time,” stated FutureNet COO, Wayne Wu, PhD. “With the new Fnet Recorder app, we now also substantially increase the providers dictating convenience over traditional hand-held devices by adding the ability to directly link with real-time patient scheduling and ADT data. These free front-end applications help us further extend the value proposition we offer our technology and transcription service clients, especially given that all the other healthcare vendors with similar applications charge set-up fees and per-user monthly fees for subsets of what we will now provide to our clients at no cost.”
Advantages of the Fnet Recorder app over traditional hand-held digital recorders include improved workflow efficiency through auto-transfer of the voice files at the conclusion of each job (versus needing to dock the hand-helds after a series of jobs), reduced workflow errors by being able to select specific patients off the physician’s schedule displayed directly on the providers phone (versus dictating all the patient data in hope that the transcriptionist will be able to identify the proper patient visit), and faster turn-around times for STAT jobs with the ability to mark individual jobs for priority processing.
Interested users can learn more about the free Fnet Recorder app, including how to use the app and access recorded voice files on the company’s website: FutureNet-Tech.com (under the Smart Phone Applications tab).
