What Our Clients Are Saying

"We are really impressed with the current speed of service; I am regularly seeing under 24 hour turn around from dictation to ready for release and I think that's sensational! More than one of the VMSA clients I have set up with you has remarked 'this has changed my life'"
Practice Manager - Virtual Medical Specialists Australia
“iMedX” What a great company to work with. Fast, Efficient and when help is needed they have great back up staff. Turnaround time 24hrs and if urgent they can organise to have done in a matter of hours. I highly recommend the use of “iMedX” to anyone requiring a great typing service."
Practice Manager – Dermatology Clinic Melbourne
"St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney has utilised iMedX for medical transcription since February 2012. iMedX’s simple web based user interface allows St Vincent’s Hospital clinical staff the ability to efficiently manage their transcription workload while also providing the hospital with industry standard electronic formatted letters integrated with our internal systems to seamlessly deliver letters to GP vendor software systems. Turn-around-time has fallen from up to 6 weeks in the old system to just 24 hours enabling timely and efficient letter distribution to recipients. Clinicians enjoy the flexibility that iMedX provide when dictating letters whether it be via telephone, Emdat applications on Apple and Android devices as well as many digital recorders supported by the system."
Internal Change & Adoption Manager – St Vincents Hospital Sydney
"From an Alfred Health point of view, the service you have provided us has been very good. This includes the re-recorded backlog work you took on in November and the dictation go live that went smoothly on 26th March. The quality of the letters transcribed by iMedX has been of a high standard and comparable to our in-house typing. We are pleased with our decision to outsource all transcription to iMedX. We are looking forward to an ongoing relationship with iMedX and partnering to achieve further developments, including the electronic distribution of letters and interfacing with Cerner."
