Melanoma Institute Australia Implements Winscribe Dictation

Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) selected Winscribe Dictation, a digital dictation and transcription workflow management system, and Winscribe's mobile dictation application to support its team of researchers and clinicians.

To document their research and treatments while on the move, MIA's specialists sought a robust dictation and transcription solution that supported mobile working. After thorough review, Melanoma Institute Australia selected the Winscribe Dictation software system and its mobile dictation application, Winscribe MD, as the best fit for their needs.

Before implementing Winscribe Dictation, tracking dictated audio files and facilitating remote work by staff was problematic and relied on manual or complicated processes. Since using Winscribe solutions across both mobile and Dictaphone options, clinicians and typing staff have responded well. To date, there have been approximately 9,940 completed jobs covering 290 hours of dictated work, which have come from 30 authors and eight typists.

"In our previous system, we found that there was no real way of identifying the doctor when we listened to the dictation file. With the Winscribe system, we now always have the doctor's name assigned to a file. With the iPhone, the doctors will use one of the key fields to help ID the patient," said Tony Locke, IT Consultant to MIA, in a statement. "Before Winscribe, we had to work very closely with doctors and receptionists, spending many hours to ensure files were uploaded successfully and didn't go missing. Workflow has been improved in that the right job will go to the right typist, and the typists are pretty happy with the system. We're finding its very flexible having an iPhone and Android application. It's a really slick system."

Based on its success so far, MIA is looking to integrate Winscribe into its patient management system and look at speech-to-text.
