He is a frequent lecturer on a wide variety of topics and a recognized innovator in the medical informatics industry. ZyDoc has won awards from the medical informatics, speech recognition, and computing industries. After Philips Speech Processing approached ZyDoc to incorporate speech recognition (SR) into the ZyDoc EHR product in 1998, Dr. Maisel oversaw the acquisition of new language modeling technology for ZyDoc?s development of 18 medical specialty models for SR engines. In 2000, the speech recognition language models were bundled with Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical. (The medical SR company was sold to Lernout and Hauspie who went bankrupt.) In 2010, ZyDoc unveiled MediSapien, a web-based service that uses NLP technology to convert unstructured text into structured data for EHRs, coding and analytics. Dr. Maisel has four provisional patents in medical informatics.

As Chairman of the Retina Group of New York, his practice serves as a paradigm featuring ZyDoc technologies integrated with best-of-breed cutting-edge medical informatics solutions in a production environment addressing  complex challenges faced by medical practices in the 21st century.  He serves on the medical advisory board of six pharmaceutical companies.
