Transcend/Salar Announce Single Source Solution For Advanced, Physician-Centric Clinical Documentation

TRANSCEND SERVICES, INC. (NASDAQ: TRCR), a leading provider of clinical documentation services to the U.S. healthcare market, announced today the release of its state-of-the art clinical documentation solution with Salar (a division of Transcend).

Transcend’s front-end speech technology and next generation transcription platform, combines with Salar’s suite of template-based documentation to create a powerful electronic solution that supports the entire physician inpatient workflow – incorporating clinical documentation, clinical review, communication and charge capture.

Salar president Todd Johnson, recently quoted in HISTalk ( http://histalk2.com/2011/09/21/readers-write-92111) stated, “With the introduction of Salar’s TeamNotes, hospitals are able to deploy point of service physician documentation tools to electronically capture structured progress notes and other physician documentation at the point of service. Salar’s advanced toolset helps to improve the quality of documentation by assisting physicians in ICD-9 identification and clinical documentation improvement.”

“Transcend’s hallmark is their ability to utilize technology to provide consistently excellent services to their clients.” said Mary Reeves, Administrative Director, Medical Information Services for Vanderbilt University Hospital and Children’s Hospital. “I am excited to see them add Salar as another option to help their customers succeed.”

The Transcend/Salar solution will capitalize on the strength of the Transcend service offering while giving physicians the choice of traditional transcription or templates. It is a cost-effective alternative that facilitates communication between physicians and HIM departments.

“Transcend values its customers and is committed to providing them with the highest levels of service by investing in the right people, processes and technologies, said Susan McGrogan, Transcend President and Chief Operating Officer. “Giving them a single source for clinical documentation will allow them to focus on what matters most – patient care.”
