March 28, 2008 – Ulleval University Hospital in Oslo, Norway is implementing what is said to be the world’s largest deployment of front-end speech recognition at one single hospital site, aiming to improve the quality of medical reports, accelerate documentation workflows and reduce administrative costs, which can result in improved patient care.
The SpeechMagic speech recognition system is network-based to provide evidence-based reference material in order to allow physicians to capture vital information and act upon it. Reportedly easy access and instant sharing of patient information and medical knowledge help improve patient safety and treatment. Actionable information should provide a clearer view of patient data and a clear path to patient care.
