The ZeroUI Hackathon featured Devacon GmbH in June. The event focussed on speech recognition in the healthcare sector this year in three important areas. Firstly, it featured a language assistant for finding information rapidly. Secondly, a tool for documenting patient visits and other administrative procedures was shown. Lastly, a virtual assistant for doctors and pharmacists, which simplifies processes like medication ordering, was presented.
Devacon GmbH, the business behind advanced mobile speech-to-text solutions, participated in a number of events in the Israeli healthcare industry. Staged in February 2018, discussions on advancements in e-health took place in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Beer Sheva. Among those from the Israeli healthcare industry in attendance were two of the largest insurance companies in the country, the Hadassah Medical Centre and the Ministry of Health.
Devacon and Stratodesk have joined forces! Devacon’s VC solution has now been integrated into Stratodesk’s new OS firmware, enabling dictation devices and foot switches to be used in a Citrix XenApp solution. Users simply have to select the appropriate ProDictate driver in their Stratodesk settings and they can then immediately control the VC solution via the dictation device, footswitch and headphones. The result is improved user experience, as well as higher quality recording and playback audio.
The popular VC solution ProDictate from Devacon now offers support for the open source operating system OpenThinClient. ProDictate is a digital dictation solution that provides superior transmission of audio, supports the use of foot switches in remote desktop environments as well as connected dictation devices and vastly reduces the overall effects of bandwidth fluctuations. IT departments are relived by the presence of ProDictate which can easily be integrated into an existing infrastructure with little set up and overhead. This makes the remote desktop solution an improvement over Citrix XenApp and similar solutions.
Linux-based Igel thin clients now have enhanced functions thanks to the new version of Devacon’s Virtual Channel Client. Users wanting speech regognition or dictation capabilities on Terminal Server or XenApp WTS up from Igel’s 5.05.100 Firmware now have no issues—even on an Igel Thin Client UD2, UD3, or UD5. Any thin client hosted by a corporate network can rapidly receive the solution via UMS. This integration allows for the quick and effective rollout of speech regognition software.
The newly released 2.0 version of ProDictate now fully supports XenApp 7.9 Citrix. XenApp 7.9 Citrix itself is a Terminal Server solution aimed at increasing user comfort, heightening security, and making management capabilities more responsive. Additionally, ProDictate 2.0 also supports Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication services, which enable users to effortlessly log in to multiple virtual and local applications via a single command. Corporate networks are made more secure this way and the work for IT departments is reduced.
Enhanced data security is achieved through encryption for both user sides, but this is offset by administration department holding security keys. There are specific requirements for data security at work. The fact that transcription is activated through ProDictate DS2 format ensures the right level of data security and means the security of that data is not affected.
