Spanish hospital integrates speech recognition into hospital information system

ISoft : 27 June, 2008  (Application Story)
Nuestra Senora de Fatima Hospital in Vigo, Spain, has implemented an electronic health record system and is using the iSOFT hospital information system x-HIS integrated with the speech recognition technology, SpeechMagic, as a global solution for managing clinical and administrative patient information in order to support and optimise its hospital management model.
Health professionals at the hospitals are aiming to work with a single clinical office where doctors and nurses can access all functionalities from a single product from admissions to the operating room.

In 2007, Nuestra Senora de Fatima Hospital created 88,545 medical reports. In order to facilitate the immediate access to patient data, the hospital integrated the Speech recognition technology SpeechMagic with x-HIS, streamlining processes and raising the quality of care. The hospital serves as a model for the integration of iSOFT’s solutions and SpeechMagic and the institution now benefits from time and resource optimisation, greater accuracy and faster reporting of results.

“The most important benefits we noticed in the hospital after the implementation are the financial and the resource savings and the fact that we can deliver the reports to patients and companies in real time. But the speed with which the doctors receive diagnostic reports is by far the biggest improvement,” said Jose Ramon Santamaria, managing director of Nuestra Senora de Fatima Hospital.

Important regional healthcare organizations such as Andalusia Healthcare Service (SAS), Castilla la Mancha Healthcare Service (SESCAM), Cantabrian Healthcare Service, Murcian Healthcare Service and the Balearic Islands Healthcare Service (IB-SALUT), and others have selected iSOFT as their strategic technology partner. iSOFT Spain, an IBA Health company, has also recently been awarded the Professor Barea Prize in the field of multi-entity projects for a system used in seven hospitals in the autonomous Community of Madrid.
