Artificial Medical Intelligence (AMI; Eatontown, New Jersey) reported formal launch into the U.S. market with the introduction of its EMscribe VFx Interactive Voice Response (IVR) form-filling solution.

AMI is a physician-led provider of medical software and services that help automate the production of medical documentation.

The company's first product to market, EMscribe VFx, is a solution that automatically fills out medical forms over the telephone. The product uses an approach combining AMI's patent-pending speech recognition technology with a touch-tone telephone. This approach and combination of technologies provide “the highest degree of reliability, user success and experience when filling out a form,“ according to a company statement.

EMscribe VFx's speech-recognition capability leverages a comprehensive and sophisticated grammar structure for capturing information such as e-mail addresses, which are difficult to capture over the telephone.

According to Elliott Familant, AMI's chief technology officer, “With EMscribe VFx, medical facilities can significantly reduce overhead time and money spent on filling out and processing forms. The methods and technologies that we offer are an exceedingly reliable way to capture complex information. Even e-mail addresses can be captured, which are frequently needed in forms, but cannot be encapsulated today by any other commercial IVR application on the market.“

EMscribe VFx is available immediately, with pricing, AMI said, “appropriate for a wide range of clinical situations, ranging from small physician practices to an entire hospital system and will depend on the degree of customization required by the customer.“

The company said it will roll out its second product offering, EMscribe DX — a coding solution that automatically scans documents containing medical phrases and matches them to appropriate ICD9 diagnostic codes — at next month's Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society conference in Dallas.
