Royal United Hospital Selects WinScribe Digital Dictation
LONDON, UK - The Royal United Hospital installed WinScribe Digital Dictation software.
With an increase in the volume of work from 200,000 reports to 220,000 per annum and backlog reductions, it is estimated that the WinScribe solution has contributed to a 10 percent increase in productivity, as well as a 10-15 percent increase in reporting efficiency and 5-10 percent increase in secretarial efficiency.
With WinScribe reports are available on screen at outpatient consultation. RUH has not needed to employ more full/part time secretaries.
"The WinScribe digital dictation software seemed simple to use and certainly looked as if it would save the department a considerable amount of time and money. Our main concern is providing the best possible service to our patients whether directly or indirectly. Being able to transcribe quickly and efficiently means that we can provide our results in a significantly reduced time frame," says Lucinda Payne Johns, laboratory manager, Royal United Hospital.
The solution is expected to be rolled-out as an enterprise-wide solution to the rest of the hospital.
