Users who can’t be dependent on a phone line often prefer to dictate by digital recorder. When it comes to choice, Athreon’s open standards dictation system offers plenty of options including Olympus, Philips, Grundig and Sanyo. Provided the device records in a compatible audio file format (.WAV, .DSS, .VOX, .MP3, .RAW, .G726, .OGG, .G721, .AVI, .MP2, .WMA or .DPF) and has software that will copy the audio files to a computer, it will likely be compatible with our system.



PC Dictation - All you need is a microphone




If you prefer working at your computer, you may enjoy the convenience of dictating there as well. Dictation via microphone offers several advantages, including not having to busy a phone line. When it comes to choice of brands, users have plenty of flexibility. Dictate using your Philips, Grundig, Olympus or Dictaphone microphone directly into our system. What’s more, these microphones also work with Athreon’s speech recognition technology. If you select a device with a barcode scanner, you can even capture demographics in

the click of a button.



Server - Preserve your existing investment

If you have a dictation system already in place and prefer to keep using the same technology, we can develop an interface between your system and ours. Or, if you prefer, we can have our transcriptionists connect directly to your system to get the job done.


Mobile Dictation Services and Mobile Apps for Healthcare

Since its initial implementation in 1996, a primary focus of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has been the protection and security of healthcare information. Athreon is a HIPAA-compliant transcription and dictation services provider that goes to great lengths to adhere to the federal regulations to secure Protected Health Information (PHI). A prime example can be found in the stringent security measures included in our new healthcare mobile app products.

Mobile Dictation and Transcription App Overview

Our medical mobile transcription/dictation apps were specifically developed to meet the demands of today’s busy healthcare providers. By downloading the app to your mobile device, you can quickly and easily dictate vital patient information. You can then upload the recording and send it to our expert transcriptionists for processing. We offer mobile medical transcription/dictation apps for both iPhone and Android users. Our mobile dictation apps include a wide assortment of valuable features, including:

  • Automated audio file transfers
  • Online job monitoring and editing
  • Apps that are compatible Electronic Health Records
  • A wide range of user-friendly dictation management features
  • Ability to dictate in online or offline mode
  • Easy-to-use touch screen operation
  • Voice recognition compatibility
  • Ability to transfer files via data or WiFi networks
  • Easily modifiable font sizes
  • Insert and overwrite capabilities

iPhone/Android Security and HIPAA Compliance

Understandably, the use of mobile apps in a healthcare environment raises concerns about privacy and security. Fortunately, the iPhone already has a high level of security built-in automatically. Athreon has been able to take advantage of the iPhone’s closed architecture to provide a secure mobile healthcare transcription and dictation app you can use with confidence.

All of the database and files that Athreon Mobile writes locally to the iPhone are segregated by the Apple operating system to internal storage that is specific to our application. This means access to any dictations, schedules, or transcriptions that might be stored locally on the device is limited to using the Athreon Mobile interface with a valid login. Thus, only authorized users can access private patient information.

Even with this built-in security, we try to minimize local storage. We only use it where temporary storage will make the application more efficient to use, or in the case of dictation to verify transmission. When in motion, all data communication is done via an SSL encrypted connection to our servers to preserve HIPAA compliancy.

Our Android mobile app also offers a wide range of built-in security features to ensure HIPAA compliance. The app is compatible with Android devices with touch screen capabilities on OS 1.6 or higher, and devices that require a Secure Digital card for operation. You’ll also get the benefit of secure HTTPS transmission of your recorded dictation.
