Full Dictation Transcription Changes

Effective Sunday, Nov. 1

Starting Sunday, Nov. 1, full dictation transcription will now show three asterisks (***) instead of blank lines where inaudible information occurred. This full dictation change mimics the current partial dictation workflow. Before signing the transcription, you must replace the asterisks (***) with the missing text. If you try to sign the transcription without addressing the asterisks, you’ll receive the following message and won’t be able to sign until each is addressed.

  • Cardiologists: This includes invasive procedural notes or results dictated.
  • Pathologists: The change is also reflected in SoftPath.
