Amazon Transcribe Medical is a HIPAA-eligible automatic speech recognition (ASR) service that makes it easy for developers to add speech-to-text capabilities to their healthcare and life science applications. Up until now, Amazon Transcribe Medical can transcribe speech for medical specialties under the broader Primary Care umbrella such as internal medicine, family medicine, obstetrics-gynecology (OB-GYN), and pediatrics. Starting today, the service expands streaming transcription support for five new medical specialties covering cardiology, oncology, neurology, radiology, and urology. 

Use cases for medical speech-to-text include helping clinicians transcribe their patient notes to enhance overall clinical documentation efficiency, converting speech to text for drug-safety monitoring (pharmacovigilance) phone calls, and subtitling for telehealth sessions. 

Amazon Transcribe Medical streaming support for these new medical specialties – cardiology, oncology, neurology, radiology, and urology – is available in all regions where the service is available.
