New Healthcare Technology Shifts Attention From Medical Charts To Patient Needs

December 1st, 2009

In collaboration with Scribe Healthcare Technologies, Imperium Inc. has created an application that allows medical practitioners and staff to spend more time with patients and less with paperwork.

The new application, Scribe Direct, automates the transfer of audio files from medical offices to transcriptionists at Scribe Healthcare Technologies. During the transfer, the application automatically archives the audio files according to doctor so they can be accessed at later dates. Once the transfer has been successfully completed, the application creates a log file to record each success. If, for whatever reason, an error occurs during transfer, Scribe Direct reattempts the transmission until it is completed successfully.

Through correspondence with Scribe’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Mark. D. Boyce, this application has been fine tuned to ensure that Scribe’s clients are presented with a product that meets their needs. Prior to the application’s development, doctors who use transcriptionists would create treatment notes on audio recording devices, instead of filling out charts and making handwritten notes during or after treatment. These audio files would then be sent to Scribe and, once received, transcriptionists would convert the audio to text. Automating the file transfer and storage procedures in this process saves doctors and their staff time, thereby improving the overall efficiency of the entire medical office.

Laptop Donated to Support Animal Care

May 29th, 2009

To show its support, Imperium Inc. has donated a 10-inch MSI Netbook with a 120 GB hard drive to the Cochrane & Area Humane Society for its Saving Lives – Changing Lives Fundraising Gala. The 6th annual event will be held Saturday, June 13th, 2009 at the Cochrane Ranche House.

The laptop, along with many other exciting items, will be displayed in an auction to raise funds for animal care. The evening will feature both a live auction and a silent one and all proceeds from the evening go directly towards providing care for animals at the shelter. Those who attend will also have the opportunity to enjoy cocktails, a delicious banquet, and live entertainment. Special guests include local artist Graham Mehain, blues guitarist Leroy Cassell, and Canadian Country Music Award Winner Jessie Farrell.

In previous years, this event has been a great success thanks to the planning and organization of the shelter’s dedicated volunteers. Last year alone, the gala raised over $32,000 for the animals of the Cochrane & Area Humane Society.

Tables of eight are available. Tickets for the evening can be purchased for $125 and they usually sell out quickly. Tickets can be purchased at the shelter or pre-ordered and picked up at the door. To order tickets, e-mail or contact Nicky Blackshaw via phone (403) 932-2072 (ext. 105).
