We’ve invested in the latest proven technology. The Dragon Medical One speech recognition engine, utilising artificial intelligence, is super fast and accurate making life for our clinicians easier... We’ve seen considerable month on month cost savings as we replace our transcription services with real-time speech recognition. We have also saved expenditure by not having to invest in additional hardware or recruit scarce and expensive technical resources to run the software day to day.
