SynaMed Taps ScanSoft Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical to Integrate Speech Recognition in Electronic Medical Record Solution

Developed in Conjunction with 1450, Inc., Complete EMR Solution Helps Customers Meet HIPAA Regulations, Reduce Costs and Improve Overall Patient Care

PEABODY, Mass. and KEW GARDENS, N.Y., November 22, 2004 - ScanSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSFT), the global leader of speech and imaging solutions, and SynaMed, the producer of a critically-acclaimed, turnkey electronic medical records (EMR) solution, today announced that SynaMed will integrate ScanSoft® Dragon NaturallySpeaking® Medical to enable speech recognition within its suite of EMR software.

This new integration will enable users of SynaMed's web-based EMR and Practice Management solution to quickly and painlessly create clinical reports directly into their EMR solution by using their voice - diminishing the need for manual transcription and significantly reducing the costs and turnaround time of creating reports through medical transcription services. This integration will also empower Dragon NaturallySpeaking users with a tool to improve patient care and reduce medical errors. Combining the power of dictation with the full suite of benefits available with SynaMed's EMR system, like e-prescribing, workflow management tools, and document management, physicians can dictate patient notes directly into the system to create referral letters, procedure documentation, and more. The integration of Dragon NaturallySpeaking with SynaMed provides physicians and healthcare providers with the most accurate documentation solution available - and enables them to spend less time on administrative tasks and focus on patient care.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical 8 has built-in understanding for more than 300,000 words, and includes additional vocabularies covering terms found in 14 different specialty areas, including General Medicine, Pathology, Radiology, Cardiology and Surgery disciplines. Healthcare organizations can also easily add their own words to the solution to create fully customized vocabularies. Care providers can take advantage of voice-activated shortcuts, allowing a single word or phrase to automatically populate fields within the SynaMed solution.

"An increasing number of our customers are realizing the many benefits of a speech-based solution, and the integration of our solutions enables compliance with today's stringent regulations," said Back Kim, M.D., SynaMed. "ScanSoft's Dragon NaturallySpeaking brings a unique combination of accuracy, robust features and a natural, easy to use interface that, in conjunction with SynaMed, delivers real time savings to our customers."
