Clinical Content Consultants Adds Speech Recognition to GE Centricity Electronic Medical Records System Using ScanSoft Dragon NaturallySpeaking SDK

Award-Winning CCCSpeak Application Adds Front-end Speech Input and Automated Back-end Processing, Enhancing Functionality Within GE Centricity - Improves Speed, Accuracy, and Workflow, Reduces Costs

PEABODY, Mass. November 23, 2004 - ScanSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSFT), the global leader of speech and imaging solutions, today announced that Clinical Content Consultants, LLC has integrated speech recognition into the GE Centricity EMR (formerly Logician®) with its award-winning CCCSpeak application using the ScanSoft® Dragon NaturallySpeaking® SDK (software developers toolkit). CCCSpeak, an enhanced voice recognition application specially designed to work within an EMR, uses the Dragon NaturallySpeaking SDK to integrate interactive speech and voice recognition as well as recorded dictation with the GE Centricity EMR system to enhance speed, accuracy and workflow functionality. Dragon NaturallySpeaking is the world's leading speech recognition solution, enabling the automatic conversion of speech into text at up to 160 words per minute, and allowing the voice-control of software applications simply by speaking.

Recently hailed by the GE Centricity EMR User Group as the best new innovation in EMR functionality, Clinical Content Consultants' CCCSpeak leverages the ScanSoft Dragon NaturallySpeaking SDK to quickly and easily integrate dictation with the GE Centricity EMR, enabling healthcare organizations to eliminate the time and cost associated with manual transcription processes. The ScanSoft Dragon NaturallySpeaking SDK allowed Clinical Content Consultants to rapidly add both front-end and back-end speech recognition capabilities to CCCSpeak. Front-end speech recognition enables the real-time conversion of speech into text, allowing documents and forms to be completed by voice. As a result, front-end speech recognition is the fastest way to enter clinical data into an EMR, and delivers the greatest reduction in transcription processing costs. Back-end speech recognition enables the batch-processing of recorded speech from a range of devices, including digital recorders, PDAs and Tablet PC's. Dragon NaturallySpeaking automatically converts the recordings into transcription data, reducing transcription processing costs by 50 percent or more.

"ScanSoft is recognized as the leader in speech technology, and the Dragon NaturallySpeaking SDK in particular has allowed us to quickly and easily integrate speech recognition within CCCSpeak for rapid deployment to our GE Centricity EMR customers," said John J. Janas III, MD, president and CEO, Clinical Content Consultants, LLC. "ScanSoft's technology provided a single solution from which we could efficiently implement front-end speech input and back-end processing with CCCSpeak, ultimately ensuring successful integration into the GE Centricity EMR system and fast adoption by hundreds of physicians."

The GE Centricity EMR (formerly Logician®) is an electronic medical record (EMR) system that enables ambulatory care physicians and clinical staff to document patient encounters, streamline clinical workflow, and securely exchange clinical data with other providers, patients, and information systems. Centricity EMR is used by thousands of physicians to manage millions of patient records, making it the most widely used ambulatory care electronic medical record. Centricity EMR empowers healthcare providers to deliver the highest quality of care at lower costs.

The ScanSoft Dragon NaturallySpeaking SDK provides healthcare providers, technology suppliers and integrators with the ability to quickly and easily speech-enable PC- and Web-based Healthcare Information Systems (HIS) and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) applications. Speech-enabled solutions provide healthcare organizations with the ability to improve patient care while saving thousands of dollars per doctor each year by automating the capture and processing of patient data.

"Increasing numbers of healthcare organizations are demanding speech technology within their EMR in order to increase productivity, lower costs and improve the quality of patient care," said John Shagoury, president, ScanSoft Productivity Applications Division. "We are pleased to work with Clinical Content Consultants to provide healthcare professionals using the GE Centricity EMR with the leading-edge technology that they need to meet and exceed these challenges."
