AbstractAn integrated records management system having the capability to record and transcribe dictation. The system is particularly useful for the prompt and efficient management of patient's medical records. The system includes a digital dictation sub-system with a number of dictation input units and a number of transcription output units. The dictation system receives dictation jobs corresponding to reports, and particularly medical reports and stores them as voice files for later output for review of transcription. Job records containing information about the dictation jobs is transmitted to a database server which manages and maintains a database of medical records. The transcription output terminals together with word processing stations connected to the data base server form work stations for transcriptionists. When a dictation job is to be transcribed, the database manager combines information in the database with a selected form for the identified report type prior to transcription and when the dictation job is transcribed into that format to form a complete document representing a report, selected portions of that report may be extracted to form a summary report by the system database manager. The system also includes printers for output of reports, a system administrator station, a communications link to other data processing systems, and archival storage.
