Samantha™ Named One of “Top 9 Apps in the Allscripts App Store” for 2018

We’re proud to announce that Samantha, the real-time transcriptionist for Allscripts Professional EHR, was selected as one of the Top 9 Apps in the Allscripts App Store for 2018 by Tina Joros, JD, Vice President & General Manager, Open & Allscripts Practice Management Business Units.

In the latest Allscripts eMagazine, she compiled a list of the 9 best third-party apps featured in the Allscripts Developer Program Store, examining not only how each can be used, but also how it brings value to the user, and, ultimately, the patient.

“Samantha leverages the Allscripts Open platform to seamlessly integrate with Professional EHR, and to support any existing templates, order sets or workflows a practice may already have in place,” Joros explains.

“Samantha’s A.I. technology makes entering all the contents of the note as easy as writing it down on paper or using a dictation recorder, automatically capturing all the structure, codes and special formatting elements required in today’s complex healthcare environment.”

  • Dictate ICD-10 codes directly into Samantha: As a user preference, instead of dictating the full diagnosis (e.g., a user can dictate “Diagnosis: M61.261” instead of dictating “Diagnosis: Paralytic calcification and ossification of muscle right lower leg.”)
  • Visual display for the status of each patient encounter: Users can easily identify which stage the patient encounter is currently in: scheduled, in process, or completed and signed-off.
  • Patient Words are displayed from the Reason for Visit in the Samantha summary window: Users can see all relevant patient information in one place.
  • Dragon Medical One (DMO) is fully supported: Allowing users to dictate directly into Samantha Soap Note window with DMO.

Samantha by NoteSwift selected as Allscripts 2018 Innovation Winner & May 2018 Allscripts “App of the Month”

Samantha, the EHR Virtual Assistant from NoteSwift, was selected as the Allscripts ADP 2018 Innovation Award Winner, and has been named Allscripts App of the Month for May 2018.

Allscripts VP & General Manager Tina Joros penned a blog post featuring our revolutionary AI-driven technology:

Physician burnout is a well-documented issue. More than 40% of over 15,500 physicians polled in a recent MedScape study reported experiencing burnout. Three of the top reasons cited in the study related to clerical tasks and the time burden of EHR documentation:

  • Too many bureaucratic tasks (e.g., charting, paperwork) – 56%
  • Spending too many hours at work – 39%
  • Increasing computerization of practice (EHRs) – 24%

This is a significant problem facing hospitals, health networks and medical practices of all sizes and specialties, and Allscripts is committed to designing and integrating with technology that minimizes the clerical burden of EHR documentation.

For example, one solution that has been shown to help ease the burden of EHR documentation is speech recognition, which helps with inputting the narrative of the note and navigating the EHR. But Dr. Chris Russell, a practicing neurologist, realized that technology needs to go beyond dictation to truly help providers.

It needs to intelligently understand the narrative, identify the required structured data elements, ensure terminology is correct and automatically place data into all the appropriate areas of the EHR — without having to manually click through every screen and option.

SamanthaTM, The EHR Virtual Assistant from NoteSwift, Inc. does exactly that.

Register for the Allscripts App of the Month Webinar next Wednesday, May 30 at 1:00 pm EST to hear first-hand from Neurologist and NoteSwift founder Dr. Chris Russell about how Samantha has helped him save both time and money while increasing reporting accuracy and improving outcomes.
