IGEL partners Philips Speech Recognition Systems to offer time saving healthcare solutions

IGEL Technology : 28 February, 2008  (New Product)
IGEL Technology has partnered with Philips Speech Recognition Systems to bring advanced digital dictation and speech recognition solutions to its Linux and XP embedded thin clients.
The partnership is expected to offer substantial savings and optimisation potential in the healthcare sector. By combining the technologies digitally captured results can be directly attached to patient files where additional information can be added and stored.

'IGEL users will now have seamless access to modern dictation devices, such as the Philips SpeechMike and industrial grade dictation and Speech recognition technology. This will enable doctors to dictate their reports as audio files and record them on the server via an IGEL thin client which reduces the time spent on administrative activities, leaving the doctors more time to focus on patient care,' said Stephen Yeo, IGEL worldwide strategic marketing director. 'Immediately after their rounds, doctors can record their findings via the thin client and assign them to the appropriate patient files. This process can now be optimised even further using IGEL's ProScribe mobile thin client tablet, which supports dictation at the patient's bedside.'

Industry experts estimate that digital dictation and Speech recognition systems are capable of saving time in medical reporting by up to 50 percent, particularly in large hospitals. The faster availability of medical information provides better decision support to healthcare professionals and will improve treatment results and reduce medical errors.

'Medical errors occur in all areas of the treatment process and typically involve the wrong medication, improper treatment, or incorrect or delayed test results. Together with IGEL we created a solution for users of thin-clients that leads to higher accuracy, convenience and efficiency in clinical documentation and can help provide physicians with better patient insight - because knowledge is safety; in healthcare even more so than in any other field,' said Marcel Wassink, managing director of Philips Speech recognition Systems.
