nVoq Partners with Mi-Co to Offer Voice-Enabled Mobile Forms in Healthcare

Nov 08, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- nVoq Inc., a provider of web-based solutions using voice recognition to speed workflow, has announced a joint marketing agreement with Mi-Corp. ( Mi-Co ), a Mobile Forms Software company.

According to a release, with their reseller networks, nVoq and Mi-Co will collaborate to deliver voice-enabled versions of commonly used templates for the home health and long term care industries, such as OASIS or MDS. The companies will also develop other voice-enabled e-Forms for other healthcare settings like ambulatory clinics and hospitals.

"For those organizations seeking to improve compliance and reduce the burden of data entry for nurses in particular, the combination of Mi-Co's Mi-Forms coupled with nVoq's SayIt affordable voice engine provides a unique value proposition," said Charles Corfield, CEO and founder of nVoq. "Together, we can create a streamlined workflow that greatly minimizes the amount of manual effort needed to complete forms like OASIS. Nurses can use voice or an automated pen to enter data directly into a template at the point of care. That same data is then available for quality review and submission for reimbursement within seconds." "The ability to make a real impact on caregiver productivity and morale is exciting for us," remarked Greg Clary, CEO and co-founder of Mi-Co. "Organizations that rely on these forms for reimbursement need quick, accurate turnaround. Using SayIt, we not only automate the form itself, but can use voice to script the flow of responses so less time is needed to complete each page. Customers that have seen a compelling return on investment such as increasing cash-flow reimbursement $1,200 a day with Mi-Forms will have another powerful entry option with voice input from SayIt." SayIt is web-based speech recognition software that uses Microsoft Speech Application Programming Interface, to accurately and securely capture data while automating workflow.

nVoq is a privately backed, Boulder, Colo., provider of solutions for the customer care and health care industries.

Mi-Co is the developer of Mi-Forms, a Tablet e-Forms software platform.
