New Dictation and Transcription System coming in June
Beginning on June 7, Banner Gateway will be switching to the new “Computer Assisted Transcription” solution known as eScription.
Once this new back-end speech recognition system goes live, you will need to call the new universal phone number, 1-866-924-9551.
Dictation work types will be standardized across the system and your Dictators ID will be your unique Banner identifier (MedSeries 4 number).
Since all Banner facilities will be on the same dictation/transcription platform, it is important that all hospitals use the same codes to improve turnaround times and to reduce the number of computer interfaces needed and transcription errors.
This will also allow you to move effortlessly between Banner facilities and continue to utilize the same dictation practices. The reason for this new system is to minimize physician workflow changes and meet the increasing demands for faster turnaround times.
As the go live date gets closer, you will receive a packet with all the necessary information needed about this new system. If you have any questions, please contact the Health Information Management Department at (480) 543-2044.
