London (PRWEB) May 18, 2011
The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, which is one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe, announced today that it has selected SRC as its chosen partner to deliver integrated clinical dictation technology. SRC’s solution will transform the Trust’s clinical document creation, production and distribution processes, with targeted savings of 10,000 hours per year.
The agreement is the largest contract of its type in Europe, with a value in excess of £1million, and is a major win for SRC against competitors.
SRC’s solution is powered by the Epro clinical toolkit which integrates Winscribe digital dictation and Dragon speech recognition with advanced workflow and templates. More than 2,500 clinicians and medical secretaries across the Trust’s five hospitals will benefit from a simplified automated dictation and transcription process, extended to include speech recognition, online document approval, retrieval and distribution functionality.
“We selected SRC because they are proven leaders in implementing and supporting digital dictation and speech recognition systems, and offered a solution which addresses our current requirements and provides options to meet future challenges around the creation and sharing of clinical documentation,” said Alison Dailly, Director of Informatics at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. “This investment represents a significant milestone in our vision of innovative and cost effective technology playing a key role in the provision of more effective patient care.”
The SRC solution leverages the flexibility of the Epro clinical toolkit to bind together digital dictation, speech recognition and provide users with access to patient data, consolidated from the hospital’s existing medical systems. Among other benefits, SRC’s Epro integration automatically transfers patient and clinic context, which is vitally important both for patient safety and productivity. Dr. Adam Towler, CEO at Bluewire Technologies, the developers of Epro commented: “We’re delighted that Leeds Teaching Hospitals recognized the value of Epro to combine data and functionality from different systems, further extending the range of benefits offered by traditional digital dictation.”
“SRC are extremely proud to have been selected by Leeds Teaching Hospitals. We now look forward to working closely with the Trust to deliver this key contract quickly and smoothly,” said Chris Hart, CEO at SRC.
Today, market leading solutions provided by SRC are used by more than 60 NHS Trusts throughout the UK.
