To Begin a Consult:

  1. Navigate to “Consult” in the top left of your Lyrebird dashboard
  2. Hover over “Begin Recording” and then select “Initial” or “Review” consult.

  1. Review vs Initial: During “Initial” consults Lyrebird will provide greater emphasis on the history of any issues, particularly any subjective information. For “Review” consults Lyrebird will focus less on history and more on any change in presentation since last consult. For review consults where you are treating an entirely new problem and want the most amount of information to be captured it is best to select “Initial Consult” to get the best possible notes!

  2. Obtain consent from the patient to record the consult and Lyrebird will automatically begin transcribing. Lyrebird never keeps any audio and performs all transcription in real time whilst immediately redacting PII. To learn more about how we keep your information extremely secure see here. Lyrebird also stores that you have obtained consent for your security as well.

Transcript Redaction:

    Lyrebird will automatically redact Patient Identifying Information (PII) from the transcript for privacy purposes. This means our Medical AI will not be able to see, and therefore include names mentioned during the consult. This is just something minor to understand if you notice “Redacted” appear in your notes
