Vienna, Austria-headquartered Royal Philips Electronics and Amsterdam, The Netherlands-based Elsevier are integrating their products to provide radiologists with better decision support.

Specifically, Philips' SpeechMagic will be integrated with Elsevier's new RadConsult radiology diagnostic reference system in an effort to assist radiologists in increasing productivity and reducing medical errors during review and diagnosis of patient cases, the companies say. This new system, the duo tout, will also allow customers and the partners of both parties to use industrial-grade speech recognition with access to radiological information.

RadConsult is designed to improve the diagnostic efficiency of the radiologist. Radiology images and differential diagnosis content are delivered through a Web site and organized around the radiologist's workflow.
