Customer Case Study
"Since I changed to iNOTZ back in 2013, it has saved me so much time and frustration – it has replaced my transcription service and is enabling my office to go paperless."
Dr. Randy Sorum is a board certified radiation oncologist based in Olympia, WA, USA.
Dr. Sorum dislikes dictating and when he discovered the free text and menu based approach that iNOTZ® offers, he was excited to switch from a traditional transcription service to using iNOTZ®.
Keeping up to date with clinical documentation is a challenge facing all oncologists and as a result, Dr. Sorum was interested in embracing iNOTZ® and making his documentation more efficient.
iNOTZ® was able to deliver this outcome for Dr. Sorum in saving him over 6 hours on average per week in comparison to how he was working before. Due to the nature of how iNOTZ® captures and formats clinical information, Dr. Sorum has been able to create extra detailed notes in a faster time frame than using more traditional Electronic Medical Record (EMR) templates or dictated notes using a transcription service.
This is largely due to:
•iPad based enabling mobility – During this time of significant telemedicine, iNOTZ® is ideal for creating medical documents from anywhere due to the design of iPad based applications. Also, use when on call or at tumor boards.
•Eliminates dictation and transcription with no transcription corrections
•Reduced costs due to no payments to transcription services.
•Communication with Elekta's MOSAIQ® Oncology Information System via CCDA export and ESI document import interfaces.
•Menu driven creation of History of Present illness (21 tumor sites)
•Immediate availability of the note for communication to referring physician
•Automatic ICDo10 in addition to F and Z coding for family and social history.
