Las Vegas, NV, - Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc. and nVoq Incorporated are showcasing an integrated, fully
cloud-based enterprise imaging and speech recognition solution at the Healthcare Information and Management
Systems Society (HIMSS) 2021 annual meeting. nVoq's enterprise-ready speech recognition solution is now embedded
in Konica Minolta's cloud-based Exa® Platform, an integrated RIS, PACS and Billing solution. The companies will
demonstrate the unified solution in Konica Minolta' HIMSS booth #2662
Now, Exa users will have voice-enabled reporting utilizing nog's flexible, speech recognition APIs (nVog.SPS) to deliver
a seamless experience for Exa users. Because both solutions require no downloads or local software installation, new
users' workstations or devices can be up and running in seconds. For large healthcare organizations, the implications
are significant. IT resources can be allocated to other projects and needs rather than downloading and maintaining
software across a vast array of users and locations.
Exa includes the Zero Footprint Viewer with Server-Side Rendering for fast access to images anywhere, including large
files such as 3D Mammography*. No pre-fetching is required and with no data transferred to or stored on workstations,
users have enhanced cybersecurity to minimize unwanted exposure of patient data. Exa enables any facility or practice
to view DICOM and non-DICOM images across all departments and facilities.
nVoq is a simple to use, HIPAA-enabled and highly accurate medical speech-to-text that can be used with desktops or
tablets. It installs in minutes, not hours. No start-up or voice training is required.
"Integrating nVoq's clinically relevant solution into Exa empowers and complements our entire product portfolio of zero
footprint technologies. While our customers will benefit from streamlined implementation and operation, the real
advantage is the ability to access the speech recognition software from anywhere at any time - in the office, clinic or
on a mobile device. This capability further enhances clinical productivity as well as lessens the burden of software
maintenance on healthcare IT departments," said Kevin Borden, Vice President of Product, Healthcare IT.
