I needed this yesterday.
None of us appreciate it when our clinician’s head is buried in a computer, when what we really want is to be heard and taken care of. But, when so much has to be done within a very short timeframe, what if we as a provider miss an important clinical clue? There has got to be a better way…
Rapid and efficient diagnoses are why tools such as the first automatic blood pressure monitor were invented. Of course, the days of Seymour B. London’s 1965 design - a prototype using a blood pressure cuff, a column of mercury, a microphone and a fish tank pump - are long gone. Now all vital signs can be checked within a few minutes, including blood pressure, electric heart signals, blood oxygen, and temperature - far more quickly and accurately than a rushed human with an armful of heavy equipment in a noisy clinical setting.
At Linguamatics our goal is to provide healthcare professionals with software that helps them do their jobs better. Giving physicians time back to be more personally attentive during the patient visit, is a high priority. Patients want to be heard. Just have a look at how many bad physician reviews follow the theme of a negative bedside manner - even if the physician achieves the right clinical outcome.
In the spirit of decreasing human error, increasing patient-physician face-time (and of course, the alternative use of a fish tank pump), we at Linguamatics are delighted to introduce our I2E Asynchronous Messaging Pipeline (aka AMP).
