Region Skåne, Sweden has decided for Speech Recognition
In order to streamline electronic patient documentation, Region Skåne decided, as the first Swedish county, to introduce speech recognition. With speech recognition integrated into the EMR, the patient record is updated automatically while the doctor is verbally dictating, thus reducing document turnaround time and insuring patient safety. An estimated 4,000 physicians and 2,000 other healthcare professionals are expected to benefit from the new technology. ”We are confident that the acquisition of speech recognition will help us improve the processes.” says Per Thyselius, Project Manager in Region Skåne.
