Both companies mentioned below are acquisitions from Nuance and you can view each page and see that both are now a part of the company. Both offer solutions without the needs for additional software installation that work with existing software and medical record systems. Is there anyone left that Nuance doesn’t own today? <grin>. I’m sure if I were to hunt on the web I might find one or two but it might be hard to find them.
In addition, they also offer a free pdf reader that I have used and is not bad and allows you to modify pdf forms with filling in information. One of their old standby products, Paperport is still alive and well too. A few years ago I saw Paperport almost everywhere as a desktop document manager.

Both were existing transcription services before ownership from Nuance so I’m not exactly sure how they all come into play if there’s any integration here or if they are pretty much stand alone services. At any rate there’s an opportunity for choice as far as which type of service may better fit your needs. BD
