Philips develops new report management solution for Finnish hospitals

Philips Speech Recognition Systems : 16 July, 2008  (New Product)
Philips has released a report management solution for Finnish hospitals that is expected to speed up the availability of medical reports and information in the country.
Philips SpeechMagic Executive Advanced (SMEA) caters to a variety of medical documentation use cases from dictation and transcription to speech recognition. The system seamlessly integrates with any healthcare infrastructure and features the new Finnish MultiMed ConText for hospital-wide speech recognition. The solution strengthens Philips position as the only company to provide healthcare Speech recognition solutions for the major Nordic countries, including Finland, Norway, Denmark and Sweden.

SMEA can be applied as a stand-alone application or as an integrated solution. The incorporated Finnish MultiMed ConText features specialized terminology for accurate recognition of reports from surgery, internal medicine, gynaecology, neurology, psychiatrics, pulmonology and other specialties. The solution is based on Citrix Ready technology to ensure compatibility with the increasingly popular Citrix Application Delivery Infrastructures.

The Northern Ostrobothnia Hospital District is introducing Speech recognition in surgery, following a pilot project with SMEA. “Using speech recognition, a dictation is done immediately after the operation exactly the same way as before. The text is sent to a transcriptionist for review, although in future surgeons can also take care of the correction themselves. Due to this it is possible to improve the quality of dictations and eliminate unnecessary report creation phases,” said Kari Haukipuro, head of surgery at the Northern Ostrobothnia Hospital District.

Laakariasema Pulssi, one of the five biggest private clinics in Finland, has introduced Speech recognition in radiology. “Using SpeechMagic Executive Advanced instead of manual typing saves radiologists significant working time,” confirmed Timo Kolu, the director of the hospital’s imaging centre.

“The Helsinki University Central Hospital released figures that show an improvement in report turnaround time by up to 78 percent,” said Bjorn Aune, regional director Nordics for Philips Speech recognition Systems. “With speech recognition, reports are available instantly to physicians as well as their patients, hereby supporting faster decisions on further treatment.”

SpeechMagic Executive Advanced is available through Philips Speech recognition Systems’ Finnish distribution partner Oy Konttority.
