Voice Technologies has worked closely with NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde pathology team to design and build a specially customised digital dictation stainless steel hands-free microphone system that extends over the cutting benches in the labs.
This Clyde-built technology was developed to be both durable and easy to use in the lab environment. A small innovation, but a vital one: combined with a powerful WinScribe system, this solution allows diagnosis to be made available to the patient the same day. The analysis is carried out by the pathology team, who dictate their findings at Stobhill Hospital. As soon as their investigation is finished, the pathologists’ digital dictation is ready for the administration teams at either Western or Royal Infirmary to transcribe right away.
The teams make use of WinScribe to prioritise these recordings, making sure that the transcription of the report is complete that same day. This represents a significant improvement in turnaround times compared to previous methodologies. Same day diagnosis for breast clinic patients: that’s a Voice Technologies solution helping NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to make a real difference to patient’s lives.
