Lexacom Connect combines all the benefits of Lexacom 3 Digital Dictation and Document Creation, with the added advantages of multi-site working and secure information sharing.

Lexacom Connect is a cloud-based service, enabling organisations to work together seamlessly. Designed to support the latest advances in modern NHS working arrangements, Lexacom Connect is ideal for federations, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and multi-site trusts who want the flexibility to share admin support.

Built to the highest NHS-approved encryption standards, Lexacom Connect is the ultimate step forward in improving efficiency. 

The future of general practice is working at scale in an efficient lean cost effective way that standardises and harmonises the delivery of care across a patch. By moving our GP federation’s member practices onto the Lexacom Cloud we are delivering these goals. Lexacom truly understand general practice and is the innovative and agile partner we need in these challenging times.

Dr Neil Paul, Director of Howbeck Healthcare & GP


Integrated, multi-site working

Lexacom Connect is the ideal solution to enable organisations to securely share work across sites, including branch surgeries and clinics:

  • All dictation data is stored in our secure UK-based cloud. Clinicians can opt to share some or all their dictation data with other sites using the same system.

  • For multi-site surgeries or clinics, dictations can be processed instantly, regardless of where the admin team is based.

  • Forward thinking federations, CCGs and trusts can opt to share workload, making best use of administrative support across their member practices and sites.

  • Workload peaks can be managed more easily, and organisations can draw on wider resources to cover holiday and sickness absence.

  • Lexacom Connect can be configured to suit individual practice requirements, as well as enabling shared working.

“We find Lexacom Connect extremely easy to use and would recommend it to other practices and federations wanting to improve efficiency and take advantage of multi-site working.”  Garry Mahn, Practice Manager, Magdalen Medical Practice

No hardware responsibilities

  • While traditional services require on premise servers to manage the databases which hold your dictation data, Lexacom Connect uses cloud servers to do that job for you.

  • As well as reducing your hardware costs, using our remote servers will reduce your need for costly hardware maintenance and associated expenses.

  • With Lexacom Connect, all your data is fully backed-up, minimising the risk of data loss.


Lexacom Connect works exactly like Lexacom 3, except that your digital dictation data is stored remotely.

When a dictation is recorded, it is automatically encrypted before being sent to your cloud server in our UK-based secure data centre. Approved administrators can see and select dictations and file transcriptions, with all data being encrypted before being transferred.

Using Lexacom 3’s workflow dashboard, it is easy for admin teams to see which transcriptions are in progress, which are outstanding and how urgent the dictations are. Depending on your chosen configuration, you can have one or more admin teams receiving work from multiple locations and clinicians.

Similarly, authors can record and approve dictations from multiple locations, either from a Lexacom Connect-enabled PC or via the Lexacom Mobile App.

Secure data

Lexacom Connect uses Microsoft Azure as a platform to host its cloud service solutions. Azure is accredited with a broad range of information compliance standards including the stringent standards set by the NHS. Access to Azure services is strictly controlled.

Sustainable solution

Lexacom Connect is the ideal solution for practices, federations and CCGs looking to work together to improve efficiency and patient care. But don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at our case studies and articles for details of Lexacom Connect in action:
