RE: [Histonet] Standalone Dictation System

From:Stevens Cathy

We are in Denver/Aurora Colorado. Our account manager is Bill Landreneau.
His phone is 1-720-981-4130 or 1-866-856-3000 X 3447. We got ours set up
quite fast as the Radiology system died and we had ours budgeted. Maybe it's
the manager that we have that was so good. Anyway, we are still satisfied.

Where are you located? The reason I ask is that I need a system for the lab
I will begin work for in 3 weeks, and Lanier hasn't even returned our calls
requesting information!!

We just installed the Lanier dictation system. It is used for Radiology and
Pathology. All by foot pedal in pathology. For those that want, a hand held
microphone is available. It is an awesome system and the support for setting
up was wonderful. We can dictate from three outside sites and others by
telephone. We have mic's on the doctor's scopes and they operate a foot
pedal for dictation. Look them up on the web at

I have been looking for one of these as well.     I have had no luck in
finding one.    The new ones all seem to be computer based and that is NOT
what we want.    Please reply to the list.

Subject: [Histonet] Standalone Dictation System

The pathologists here are looking for  a dictation system that allows all
dictation functions to be accessed through a foot pedal. Our current system
has been onsite modified to allow the concurrent use of the foot pedal with
a dictation microphone while they are prosecting. This has the disadvantage
that a switch on the microphone needs to be worked to change from the
dictation mode to transcription mode (and vice versa) to allow review and
editing of the macroscopic dictation. They find this inefficient and

The pathologists would also like to use a foot pedal and boom microphone
while dictating microscopics instead of a hand microphone.

All stand alone dictating dictating systems seem to expect foot pedals and
headsets to be used for transcription only and handheld microphones only to
be used for dictation. I believe some central and digital systems allow foot
pedal and mic but they are not an option at this time.

Does any one on the list have experience, comments or pointers?
