EHR technology offers clinicians a wide range of documentation methods. Innovative tools and methods are designed to advance health IT safety through improved EHR documentation.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Discuss the challenges of introducing speech recognition technology into existing medical culture and current clinician workflow, including user preferences and the quality of documents generated by this technology
  • Define the role of linguistics in improving speech-recognized text through the use of phonetic, syntactic, and semantic analysis
