What is SNUG Virtual Conference and AGM?

The SNUG Virtual Conference and AGM is a continuation of the previous virtual conferences, brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The organisers wanted to further share the latest learning opportunities with attendees, on the benefits, challenges, and use of IT in GP practices.

That is why Simon Brady, Lexacom’s Head of Primary Care is attending. He will be showcasing, demonstrating, and discussing all elements of our professional-grade time-saving technology.

This includes our speech recognition platform, Lexacom Echo, and our market-leading digital dictation software, Lexacom 3.


What is SNUG?

The Scottish National Users’ Group (SNUG) is an independent user-led organisation.

The aim of the group is to improve patient care through the improved use of information technology (GPIT, as it is called).

It is supported by SCIMP and NHS National Services Scotland.

Lexacom has worked over several years with SNUG and our GPIT technology is fully embedded with the two principal clinical systems, EMIS and Vision, that the Scottish Health Boards use.

What is Lexacom doing at the SNUG Virtual Conference and AGM 2021?

Lexacom is trusted by GPs across the whole of the UK to help them make the most of that scarcest of resources – Their Time.

Our professional-grade Digital Dictation platform, Lexacom 3, is the market leader in GP practices.

It is now joined by our complementary Speech Recognition platform, Lexacom Echo.

Echo is a cloud-based speech recognition platform that enables GPs to enter information directly into their clinical system, simply by speaking. No keyboard, no typing, no delay.

When combined with Lexacom 3, for dictating letters, reports, and notes, Lexacom Echo, delivers even more time savings.

Echo, like Lexacom 3, is fully compatible with all Clinical Systems and works out of the box with Windows 10

Simon Brady, our Head of Primary care, will be at the SNUG Virtual Conference to showcase these technologies. To both existing and new customers attending the conference.
