Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust Selects Philips SpeechMagic
VIENNA, Austria - Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust will be implementing SpeechMagic. As a part of SpeechReport, the digital dictation application from G2 Speech, SpeechMagic is expected to be rolled-out trust-wide to more than 1,500 users in nine locations.
"At this moment we use traditional analog dictation and transcription which is very time consuming," said Martin Wilson, acting general manager, Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust. "Therefore we were looking for a solution to speed up medical reporting. After the OJEC Tender process we decided that SpeechReport with SpeechMagic is best suited to fulfill our requirements and will help us reduce turnaround time and transcription backlogs resulting in positive effects on our cost structure."
SpeechReport powered by SpeechMagic will be rolled-out hospital-wide to nine locations, including the North Tyneside General Hospital and the Wansbeck General Hospital, where SpeechMagic will be handling reports from all medical areas.
SpeechMagic is a network-based technology, which supports client/server architecture and can be used hospital-wide for all medical specialties.
