[Histonet] Dictation System

From:"Peterson, Dan" <1dpeterson@meriter.com>

If Lanier comes around, RUN!!!!
We had Dictaphone and they were good (back when we had tapes)
We then were looking for digital and Lanier (who our hospital used, emphasize "used") said we could go digital with their equipment and piggyback with the hospital's server to save money.
Needless to say, we couldn't use the hospitals server, the Pathologists didn't like the handheld recorders (and they still don't like the new Protégés) and the hospital switched to Dictaphone!
$18000 later we're got Pathologists hand writing their diagnosis, and PA's logging on the equipment as guests.
Dictaphone (as I have seen in other labs) seems to be the way to go.
