FERREIRA, Dácio Miranda; COHRS, Frederico Molina; LEDERMAN, Henrique Manoel  e  PISA, Ivan Torres. Comparison between the time required to generate and type radiology reports by means of VoIP-based system and a traditional paper-based system. Radiol Bras [online]. 2010, vol.43, n.1, pp.7-12. ISSN 0100-3984.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842010000100005.

OBJECTIVE: To compare the time required for generation and typing of radiology reports by means of an electronic system based on the technology of voice over internet protocol (VoIP) and the traditional system, in which the report is handwritten by the radiologist. MATERIALS AND METHODS: It was necessary to model, build and deploy the proposed electronic system, capable of recording the reports in a digital audio format and comparing it with the traditional method. Radiologists and transcriptionists recorded the reports generation and typing times for both systems, using appropriate forms. RESULTS: When the mean times between both systems were compared, those from the electronic system presented a reduction of 20% (p = 0.0410) in the report generation time as compared with the traditional method. On the other hand, the traditional method was more efficient with respect to typing time, as the mean typing time with the electronic system was three times longer (p < 0.0001). CONCLUSION: The results demonstrated a statistically significant difference between the compared systems, with the electronic system being more efficient than the traditional one with respect to report generation time, while the traditional method presented better results with respect to typing time.
