The Benefits of Digital Dictation in Healthcare

The benefits of digital dictation in healthcare are efficiency, data security, flexibility, and improved workflow. 

Medical professionals have long used tape-based voice recorders to document patient notes and dictate letters. To an extent, this process does save the medical professional a fair amount of time. However, the medical recordings and patient notes still need to be transcribed, filed, and uploaded onto a shareable system.

Enter Lexacom 3. A medical digital dictation system that enables you to dictate letters, notes, and reports with complete ease, and that’s just the beginning.

So, let’s take a deeper look at Lexacom 3’s digital dictation capabilities, and how they support the healthcare industry.

What are the benefits of digital dictation in healthcare?

Increased Efficiency

Lexacom’s digital dictation products have been created with the sole purpose of increasing efficiency in the workplace. With the healthcare industry being one of our main focus’.

As well as allowing you to dictate patient notes and letters both on-site and on the move, Lexacom 3 gives you complete control over your workload, too.

With Lexacom’s workflow dashboard, each user can see exactly what stage a dictation is at, assess patient records, and prioritise transcriptions. This streamlines workflow, as well as minimises errors.

You can also take advantage of the integrated Docmail print and postal service. So gone are the days where you have to rely on others to get letters sent out to your patients. With Lexacom 3, it’s available to you at the click of a button.

Complete Security of Patient Information and Medical Notes

The security of medical notes and reports is of the utmost importance, especially in the healthcare industry.

That’s why security is not a function that Lexacom compromises on. All Lexacom systems are built to stringent NHS encryption standards.

As such, you can feel confident in the knowledge that all data and documents stored on our system are completely secure.

High Transcription and Dictation Accuracy

Medical practices that employ the use of digital dictation and transcription services produce more accurate results than those that operate manually. Lexacom products have been developed using some of the most advanced technology on the market.

This means that you can relax knowing that your medical digital dictations will be accurately produced, as we’ve significantly reduced the potential for human error.
