Pilot to test the introduction of speech recognition software into clinical areas to speed up the way patient information is inputted into the electronic patient record. Piloted in five clinical areas and currently in phase two of the pilot stage.
Aims to speed up data input for clinicians so they have more time to care. May also be used to write patient letters.
Faster turnaround times for clinic and consultant letters
Improved quality of correspondence and clinical notes
Time saved inputting data into the EPR by clinical staff
As part of a new pilot we will be introducing text message appointment reminders and an online portal where patients can change and cancel appointments for Ophthalmology, ENT, Trauma & Orthopaedics, Paediatrics and Clinical Haematology departments. https://t.co/04skfh3rzJ
