Portable, secure AI-powered speech recognition to reduce clinical admin and costs for NHS trusts

Clinical voice solutions specialist, Scribetech, is working with healthcare institutions across the UK to implement its new cloud-based voice AI product suite, Augnito.

The global pandemic has further highlighted the need for more efficient, device agnostic, voice-enabled healthcare products and services and an accelerated move away from legacy devices such as pagers and unsecure commercial generic voice recognition apps. Advancements in AI and voice technology mean clinicians now have access to a secure tool that can help reduce admin by up to an hour a day and save hundreds of pounds in related data entry costs.

In an effort to help streamline workflows and improve patient data processes, clinical voice solutions specialist Scribetech has announced that it is working with healthcare institutions across the UK to implement its new cloud-based voice AI product suite, Augnito.

Shiraz Austin, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Scribetech, said: “The pandemic has highlighted the need for more efficient solutions in our healthcare systems. Augnito has been designed with input from doctors and AI scientists with the aim of significantly reducing clinicians’ workloads, allowing them to focus on providing the best possible care for their patients.”

Augnito turns medical information into clinical documentation by automatically transcribing medical records, referrals, or patient letters at the point of dictation. The solution also supports speciality language models including radiology, histopathology and cardiology and can recognise regional and international dialects.
