Incident Description

On November 9, 2023 at approximately 10:00AM MST, details for dictations performed on the Healthcare system stopped appearing on the Review and Correct page. Dictations were transcribed and the text was returned to users, but the dictation details for the Review and Correct page were not being returned.

The transcription transaction records were being stored within the database, but not populated within the new tables now used by the review and correct calls. Although, there were some entries being stored properly in new database table used by Review and Correct.

At 2:00PM MST, the nVoq operations team began to replace the affected application servers in the Healthcare system and dictation details began appearing on the Review and Correct page within 20 minutes.

Details for the dictations performed from 10:00AM to 2:20PM were backfilled to the Review and Correct page later in the evening.
