Accentus said the hospital has signed up for a multi-year deal, with Accentus processing up to 400,000 minutes of transcription per year for the institution.
“We are seeing more and more Canadian hospitals move towards a fully outsourced transcription service model,” said Accentus CEO Stephen Rogers in a statement. “Accentus offers a complete end-to-end package, bringing together not only all of the products, services, and applications required to streamline the transcription workflow and reduce costs but also unparalleled expertise, experience, and proven results."
The hospital is using Accentus’s hosted eDoc technology, which provides dictation, transcription and voice recognition services on a pay-as-you-go basis.
The Toronto East General Hospital said it had previously been using multiple companies to produce its medical transcripts, but chose Accentus to consolidate the work and cut down on costs.
Accentus announced a deal with the Queensway Carleton Hospital in April, and it’s already working with some of the biggest hospitals in the country, including the North York General Hospital and the Edmonton Southside Primary Care Network.
