Emdat: Moves into new offices following sustained growth and tripling of staff over past five years

Popularity of firm’s web-based medical transcription software puts Emdat on track for 11th consecutive year of revenue gains

Fitchburg, WI (Dec. 1, 2010) – Emdat Inc., a leading provider of web-based medical transcription software, announced today it has moved its Fitchburg, Wis., headquarters in order to accommodate the company’s robust growth over the past several years.

The 11-year-old company, whose software helps medical facilities and transcription businesses more efficiently collect, store and transfer patient information, is on track to experience its 11th consecutive year of revenue growth and has tripled its staff size since 2005. The new offices, 6180 Verona Road, are roughly 50 percent larger than the company’s previous Fitchburg location, providing additional room for Emdat’s growing staff.

“We’ve been able to significantly expand our staff in recent years as a result of more medical providers and transcription firms adopting our user-friendly platform,” said Emdat CEO Randy Olver. “We’re excited to have an attractive new space that accommodates our growing workforce and allows us to continue developing solutions that make the documentation process more convenient, reliable and cost-effective.”

Emdat offers a “pay as you go” software-as-a-service model that requires no capital investment from its users. In addition, proprietary features such as Qualified Text™ help reduce the amount of typing transcriptionists have to perform, generating substantial per-line cost savings for both transcription firms or medical facilities. Today, more than 23,000 health care providers obtain transcription services through Emdat’s platform, more than double the number of dictating users in 2007.

Earlier this year, the company expanded its offering with two popular new products: an iPhone app that allows physicians to dictate from virtually any location and a software solution that automatically populates electronic medical records (EMRs) with data contained in a medical transcription. The technology, called Discrete Reportable accurate Transcription, or DaRT™, helps physicians maintain their existing workflow when switching to EMRs, the adoption of which is expected to rise sharply in the coming years as a result of federal incentives.
