Higher speech recognition rate
for productive reporting
Dr. Mobin Master lives by his name. He is a master of many facets of medicine, with over 20 years of medical experience starting from basic surgical training to advanced training as a radiologist, performing complicated radiological procedures. With an additional interest in cosmetic non-surgical procedures, he is an expert in cosmetic intervention, incorporating an exciting approach to his tasks that make a quality difference to his treatment methods.
Dr. Master is a senior radiology consultant at Alfred Health and Western Health in Victoria, both of which are amongst the most advanced radiology departments in Australia. He also works as an Associate Lecturer at the University of Melbourne.
High recognition rate
Dr. Master uses the Philips SpeechOne Wireless Dictation Headset in connection with the reporting software from M*Modal. While using the headset, the docking station allows him to turn his dictation recordings on and off. Simultaneously he uses dual monitors to view the images he is dictating with, and to check the accuracy of his dictations. “I have found the docking station quite useful when I am recording. If I am interrupted, which happens frequently, I can just click the record function on and off”, says Dr. Master. The docking station is a sturdy magnet dock which charges the headset while allowing users to control their recordings from the function keys on it.
For his work, Dr. Master has used devices from competitor brands as well but he was amazed by the accuracy of the Philips SpeechOne. “The pickup rate is higher as compared to other competitor devices. And there is absolutely no background noise unlike the other headsets I have had before. After using SpeechOne, I am very impressed with the accuracy of the speech recognition.” He uses it all day while putting it down between cases and procedures. Dr. Master adds, “As radiologists, we generally look at the auto-recognition and if we don’t recognise something that has been picked up, we just highlight those areas and delete. It’s much easier and quicker than to listen and playback.”
Recording on and off with the foot pedal allows to be completely hands free.
