Mountain Medical Technologies Selects ScanSoft Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical to Speech-enable CYRAMED

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

PEABODY, Mass. and RENO, Nev., January 11, 2005 - ScanSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSFT), the global leader of speech and imaging solutions, and Mountain Medical Technologies, Inc., today announced that Mountain Medical Technologies, (MMT) will integrate ScanSoft® Dragon NaturallySpeaking® Medical to enable speech recognition within its CYRAMED® electronic medical records (EMR) system.

The new integration will enable MMT's customers to dictate directly into the CYRAMED system, eliminating the need for time-intensive transcription services and dramatically lowering administrative costs and turnaround time for critical medical records. Physicians and other medical professionals can use the power of their voices to create patient notes, fax or e-mail referral letters, and perform other traditionally transcription-dependent tasks. The integration of Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical with CYRAMED equips physicians and healthcare providers with the most accurate documentation solution available - and enables them to spend less time on administrative tasks and more time on direct patient care.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical 8 has built-in understanding for more than 300,000 words, and includes 14 pre-made specialty vocabularies, 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 CYRAMED solution.

"The CYRAMED EMR system already benefits from a user interface that mimics how physicians work with paper electronically, so speech recognition is a natural progression," said Martin Bailey, vice president of marketing, Mountain Medical Technologies. "With CYRAMED also running on the Microsoft Tablet PC platform, it almost becomes another member of the staff - taking dictation and providing information wherever it is needed."

ScanSoft Dragon NaturallySpeaking provides healthcare technology suppliers and integrators with the ability to quickly and easily speech-enable commercial and in-house PC- and Web-based EMR applications, delivering unrivaled speed and accuracy. Dragon NaturallySpeaking can save healthcare organizations thousands of dollars per doctor each year in reduced or eliminated manual transcription costs. Tens of thousands of physicians worldwide use ScanSoft Dragon NaturallySpeaking to achieve substantial time and money savings, enabling them to focus on patient care. Furthermore, through the use of CYRAMED, healthcare providers receive additional cost-savings from reduced labor costs and increased efficiency.

"Healthcare professionals are continually seeking new ways to increase productivity and the quality of care, while at the same time driving down costs," said John Shagoury, president, ScanSoft Productivity Applications. "Using Dragon NaturallySpeaking, Mountain Medical can offer to the healthcare industry a complete voice-enabled EMR solution with the most accurate speech technology available, enabling healthcare professionals to reduce the time and cost associated with managing patient records, and ultimately improving the quality of patient care."
