  • Patent number: 11990138
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for rapid event voice documentation are provided herein. The rapid event voice documentation system captures verbalized orders and actions and translates that unstructured voice data to structured, usable data for documentation. The voice data captured is tagged with metadata including the name and role of the speaker, a time stamp indicating a time the data was spoken, and a clinical concept identified in the data captured. The system automatically identifies orders (e.g., medications, labs and procedures, etc.), treatments, and assessments/findings that were verbalized during the rapid event to create structured data that is usable by a health information system and ready for documentation directly into an EHR. The system provides all of the captured data including orders, assessment documentation, vital signs and measurements, performed procedures, and treatments, and who performed each, available for viewing and interaction in real time.
