NHS revolutionise patient care with speech recognition technology

Patient care gets an upgrade as Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust select Nuance Dragon Medical One speech recognition technology as part of its Apollo program

Nuance Communications unveiled that Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust have partnered with Nuance Dragon Medical One speech recognition technology as part of its Apollo program in bid to transform the future of patient care.

The Trust curated their Apollo programme, in partnership with King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, to provide an electronic health record (EHR) system that would streamline clinical documentation. Replacing traditionally paper based recording systems, The Trust hope the technology will provide greater freedom to both the clinicians and the patients.

Robyn Tolley, Apollo program director at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, shared in a statement:

Our initiative aims to use technologies that make it easier for staff and patients to access required information and data. Our collaboration with Nuance will enable clinicians to create accurate, high-quality patient records more efficiently, empowering them with better information and freeing them to do what they do best – improving outcomes for patients.

Diana Nole, executive vice president and general manager of healthcare at Nuance, said:

Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust has been proactive in responding to the challenge of changing demands, such as the growth in telemedicine, by putting technology at the heart of its long-term strategy. Facilities that use Epic choose Nuance solutions because of our longstanding partnership and proven technology integration. Our deeply embedded solutions allow care teams to engage with conversational user interfaces to practice medicine and create effective clinical documentation while maximising the value healthcare organisations receive from their EHR.
