re: Dictation Software Adoption On Rise
At a time when health and social care organisations are being encouraged to optimise technology to deliver significant gains efficiency and health outcomes, itGs no surprise that the adoption of speech recognition technologies is on the rise.

When used as part of a workflow solution, voice productivity tools can help trusts to produce electronic readable documents which can improve efficiency, enhance the quality of documents and most importantly improve patient outcomes.

The process of creating, disseminating, checking and signing discharge summaries and clinical letters can be timely and often prevents valuable patient-facing time. Some hospitals are forced to function without administrative support and there are still high numbers of clinical staff producing handwritten notes G all of which eventually need typing.

Additionally, with a high proportion of care being carried our remotely, particularly in the mental health sector, more trusts are recognising the need to give clinicians the best tools and are equipping them with technology, such as digital dictation and speech recognition to help improve their efficiency and connectivity.
