Having assessed a variety of digital dictation services, the LMC Buying Groups Federation first appointed Lexacom as its approved supplier 12 months ago. The group has been so impressed with the service and value for money offered by Lexacom that is has extended the contract for a further year.
Dr Andrew Whiteley, Managing Director of Lexacom, said: "We are delighted to be re-appointed as the approved supplier of digital dictation services to LMC Buying Groups Federation members. Combined with our other contracts, Lexacom is now the number one choice for GPs across the UK and we're determined to maintain that position by continuing to offer high quality, flexible software at a competitive price."
Lexacom's dictation software was originally developed by doctors to meet the particular needs of the medical sector. Its latest software has been designed to make doctors' lives even easier by offering improved integration with clinical systems, reporting functions which enable referrals to be tracked and audited, and secure mobile working so dictations can be done anytime, anywhere - even while on hospital rounds.
The LMC Buying Groups Federation is a strong advocate of digital dictation software being used in a medical environment to reduce document turnaround times and increase efficiency and improve patient care. The LMC Buying Groups Federation is made up of 31 LMC Buying Groups from across England and Wales and its 4,500-strong membership represents nearly half of the total number of GP practices in the UK.
Chief Negotiator for the LMC Buying Groups Federation, Chris Locke, said: "Lexacom's digital dictation software has proved a great hit with practices. We are accordingly very pleased to renew our agreement with them, delivering continued savings for members purchasing this valued product."
The new contract begins on the 1st April 2012 and will run for a minimum of 12 months.
Notes to editors
Lexacom first pioneered digital dictation in 1997 and it is now used to create over 10 million documents a year by professionals in the healthcare, legal and financial professions. The software enables authors to flag the importance of a dictation, while admin teams can immediately see both the priority and length of the dictation and can plan their workload accordingly.
Lexacom 3 enables organisations on multiple sites to access their dictation service wherever they are, even if there is no shared server in place, and offers truly mobile dictation with the use of the new mobile apps.
