Several studies and publicly available data echo the same observations:
FINDINGS: Documentation is more time-consuming, user adoption is low, and the resulting records are less desirable than narrative text.
Front-end speech recognition, where words are displayed as they are spoken, require the provider to be responsible for engine training as well as editing and signing the document.
FINDINGS: Software accuracy is unreliable and documentation is more time-consuming when providers are required to edit and "teach" the program.

A hybrid approach accomplishes documentation goals without affecting physician performance.
SUCCESSES: Physician productivity is maximized, physician workflow and revenue capacity is retained, and patient encounters are documented comprehensively.
