Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust delivers same day patient discharge via BigHand Digital Dictation
Date:1/7/2009

One of the largest rollouts of Digital Dictation technology within the NHS produces significant efficiency gains.

London, UK (PRWEB) January 7, 2009 -- BigHand has today announced that Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has implemented the BigHand digital dictation workflow system, incorporating over 1000 users spanning 5 hospitals on 2 campuses in one of the largest rollouts of Digital Dictation technology in the NHS. The replacement of analogue tape dictation equipment with the award winning digital dictation workflow system has enabled the Trust to improve efficiency and patient care; a 10 - 25% improvement in document turnaround time has resulted in some specialties achieving same day discharge summaries and typing of clinics in real time.

BigHand digital dictation workflow software for the NHS helps to remove many of the administrative delays that occur between dictation and typing of the notes, enabling and supporting Trusts to change working practices to improve efficiency and communication.

David Whitham, Informatics Director at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust comments:

''In Acute Medicine the Emergency Admissions Unit has identified significant benefits as a result of using BigHand over tape equipment. Digital dictation has streamlined the process from consultation to production of discharge summary and as a result, the Trust has experienced an improvement in turnaround times. It is now common practice for consultants to dictate letters straight after seeing patients rather than all at the end of clinic, in some of the medical specialties. Secretaries are therefore able in many cases to transcribe immediately following each attendance; ensuring documentation is ready for clinician sign off at the end of clinic.
