Lexacom chosen by LMC Buying Groups Federation

“We are delighted to have appointed Lexacom as our approved supplier of digital dictation software ”

Lexacom is pleased to announce that it has been selected by the LMC Buying Groups Federation as its ‘approved supplier’ for digital dictation software.

The LMC Buying Groups Federation is made up of local medical committee buying groups from across England and Wales and has more than 4,000 GP practice members.

It recently assessed the performance of various software products that are currently available to general practices in the UK and Lexacom’s innovative software shone through during the tests thanks to its flexibility, detailed reporting engine and proven track record for delivering greater efficiency.

In a recent audit that directly compared the efficiency of a digital dictation platform to that of a tape-based system, Lexacom’s software was found to reduce the time it takes to process urgent patient information from 31 hours and 42 minutes down to 1 hour and 21 seconds. Also, when processing routine patient information, Lexacom reduced this time from 98 hours and 17 minutes down to 26 hours and 48 minutes.

Chief Negotiator for the LMC Buying Groups Federation, Chris Locke, said: “We are delighted to have appointed Lexacom as our approved supplier of digital dictation software as they offer a product which has been specifically designed by GPs for GPs. Their product optimises practice administrative efficiency and offers a valuable report writing function which can be tailored to assist GP commissioners by improving collection of referral data.”

Lexacom Managing Director, Andrew Whiteley, is pleased to have signed a formal agreement with the LMC Buying Groups Federation.

He said: “This is a very significant buying group in the UK and we’re delighted that, after analysing all of the products on the market, it has endorsed our software so strongly.

“There is no denying the benefits that a sound digital dictation platform like Lexacom can bring to the medical working environment and we’ll be working closely with the Federation’s member practices to make sure they can maximise the impact of our software and improve their efficiency.”
