Atom™ is a software-based digital dictation and transcription solution that allows users to dictate in several different ways using digital voice recorders, workstation software, mobile phone applications or telephones. The compressed and encrypted sound file is then automatically queued for transcription inside Atom. Any transcriptionist can then retrieve dictation by either calling in with a digital transcriber, or utilizing Atom Player; a software-based transcription system eliminating the need for phone lines. Optional Document Management Services make Atom a perfect solution for a total HIPAA/HITECH compliant solution complete with audit trail and encryption for both text and audio files. Optional integration with PACS and RIS make working smarter easier than ever.
Atom is Perfect for:
- Healthcare Dictation
- Legal Dictation
- Insurance / Claims Reporting
- Safety Officers / Accident Reporting
- Public Safety
- Much more!
Atom makes interfacing with EMR/EHR systems, case management systems, document management systems and more a snap. With both download and upload interfaces available. Atom is fantastic for healthcare. It allows users to continue to dictate the way they are used to, great for optimal patient care, but don't have to waste time, effort and lose the narritive that often occurs with EMR systems. Atom routes the dictation through transcription first for typing and QA, then it pushes the transcribed document into the EMR. - Keep your transcription customers by bringing up EMR systems and make sure they know you don't have to choose between the two workflows. Physicians can continue to make optimal use of their time, transcription can continue to maintain a high standard of documentation - all while utilizing the benefits inherent in an EMR/EHR system.
If you are not interested in owning your own dictation system, Atom is also offered in a hosted flavor called Atom Live.

Dictate anyway you want
Atom offers three primary ways to dictate – portable dictation utilizing a digital handheld recorder, workstation or pc-based dictation with a professional grade dictation microphone and call-in dictation. Authors can dictate in any of these ways or all of them in any combination.
"Walk and Talk Dictation"
Portable dictation is one of the most common ways to dictate today. Utilizing a DPM4 or Olympus professional recorder, a user can dictate wherever he or she goes. When ready, simply dock the handheld on any PC that has Atom Download installed, and Atom Download will take care of the rest by encrypting it for security and sending it to the Atom System either via LAN or the Internet. *Note: The maximum number of users that can simultaneously offload their handheld's is 16.
The Atom Dictate software turns your PC into a professional, fully integrated dictation station. It features Automatic File Transfer and routing capabilities for audio, flexible concurrent licensing (up to 16 simultaneous users), security configuration, flow auditing and encryption features as well as support for barcoding. Unlimited Audio Templates can be use for canned reports, normals, etc. Edit and review completed reports – QC has never been this easy! Listen or edit your audio already on the Atom system. Dictators can create an original document, link templates to demographics, call up a list of routines and more with the optional Document Management Services. The Atom Dictate software is easy to use and was designed with the professional user in mind.
With the incredible Gooseneck Microphone and a wide dictation foot pedal, handsfree dictation with Atom is a snap! Waterproof foot pedals are available and are perfect for pathology / gross labs.
Atom supports call-in dictation (up to 16 simultaneous callers) for maximum flexibility. Users simply call the telephone number, enter in their author ID and start dictating. They have full dictation control such as rewind, fast-forward, insert, overwrite and more simply by using the keypad on any touch-tone phone.
Do you have users familar with other systems like Dictaphone, Lanier, RTAS or others? Atom offers flexible key maps to keep your users familar with your system. Atom even lets you create fully customized keymaps for those harder to satisfy authors.
Atom was designed by professionals for professionals. It lets you customize the prompt your author hears when they dial in so they always know who they are calling. "Welcome to ABC Transcription. Please enter in your author id followed by the pound sign."
Transcription Made Simple and Easy
Transcription on Atom is simple. A transcriber simply logs into Atom with a digital desktop transcribe station or Atom Player software and retrieves work. The automatic workflow pushes audio out to the transcriber in the order you specify and it populates a work list which is visible in Atom Player. If enabled, the transcriber can return jobs to the system, un-transcribed if needed, and it is automatically reassigned based on your workflow.
Atom Player turns your PC into a professional transcriber. With the IN-USB2 and transcription headset, you are able to transcribe just like you would with any standard transcribe machine. Add on Document Management Services and now you can transcribe directly into the Player. Get rid of multiple typing and voice systems, let Atom be your stand alone solution from dictation all the way through to transcription.

Atom supports direct-wire transcribe stations with the use of a telephone line emulator. Also, this same station could be used to dial over a telephone line and retrieve jobs for transcription as well.
*Note that using a physical station requires one telephone port to be licensed. Also the telephone port is in use the entire time the transcriber is connected to the system.
The add-ons for Atom enable power users to get the functionality they need without requiring the average user to pay for features they don't need. These add-ons can be purchased at any time in the future as the needs of your business grow or change.
Document Management Services
Document Management Services (DMS) for authors allow the dictator to create an original document, link templates to demographics, call up a list of routines and more. The text file then head off to transcription using the document rounting criteria. Transcription can easily create or add to the document in the Atom word processor.
