Answer / Solution

Convert ISMP Error-prone Abbreviations option for First Draft output

Summary

The InfraWare 360 platform provides Administrators with an additional option to convert dictated abbreviations from the ISMP List of Error-prone Abbreviations in the First Draft output.  For more details on ISMP's List of ERror-Prone Abbreviations, Symbols, and Dose Designations, see this link - www.ismp.org/tools/errorproneabbreviations.pdf

Overview

In the InfraWare Management Console (IMC), Admins can customize the format in the First Draft ⇒ Tuning ⇒ Fast Start Settings First Draft seeks to pull as much time as possible out of the editing experience before the draft even reaches the Transcriptionist.  One of the ways it adds value is to allow Administrators to specify whether ISMP dangerous Abbreviations are converted or left as dictated in the draft output.  By default, if there is nothing specified in this option will leave abbreviations as dictated.  When the Convert Dangerous Abbreviations option is checked, if the dictator says "qhs" the First Draft output will be "nightly".  If this option is not checked the output will be as dictated.  

Requirements

You will need the following before you begin:

  • A valid InfraWare login ID and password
  • Administrator role
  • Account subscribed to the First Draft Dictation Recognition Service
