Speech Recognition

Speech Recognition for Healthcare

Speech recognition drives efficiency and cost savings in clinical documentation by turning clinician dictations into formatted documents, automatically.

Using front-end speech recognition, clinicians dictate, self-edit and sign transcription-free completed reports in one sitting – directly into a RIS/PACS system, an EHR or any clinical information system. Front-end speech recognition also enables doctors to quickly navigate from one section of the information system to another, saving valuable time.

Using backend speech recognition, clinician dictations are turned into speech recognised first drafts that medical secretaries edit, resulting in increased productivity for the medical secretaires when compared to traditional transcription.

What customers say

Solutions thumbnail of quotes

“The excellent reputation of the Dragon Medical software was also a reason we opted for the speech recognition solution from Nuance. Four months after implementation, we can say that we have indeed witnessed a noticeable decline in workload.”
Hilary Aldcroft , IT and Information Manager at Ponteland Medical Group in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

“SpeechMagic is such a useful tool that you think: how did I ever manage without it before?”
Kevin Peters, Head Superintendent for Radiology, Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust, UK.

The recognised text is the final report, because the system is so accurate. More than half of the reports need no correction at all, it’s got it word-perfect. I’ll press authorise and the report is gone – totally finished. I never have to revisit it again.”
Dr Melanie Hiorns , Consultant Radiologist and Chair of Radiology, Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, UK
