The deal will see nine-year-old Accentus providing a team of certified medical transcriptionists, dedicated project and account managers and IT support staff to capture and manage more than 300,000 minutes of transcription annually to the local hospital.
Accentus will also upgrade the hospital’s existing dictation and transcription system to its eDoc hosted electronic health records platform, which includes voice recognition technology, in the second quarter.
“We are very pleased to have been chosen by Queensway Carleton Hospital to be their sole transcription solutions partner," said Accentus CEO Stephen Rogers in a statement. "We look forward to providing QCH with the kind of industry-leading transcription services and commitment to quality that has made Accentus a leader in the medical transcription industry."Accentus – a privately funded firm – already serves more than 70 per cent of the biggest hospitals, such as the North York General Hospital and the Edmonton Southside Primary Care Network, as well as hundreds of medical clinics and independent physicians across Canada
