Date:8/13/2009

BigHand, a leading provider of voice technology for the NHS, has today announced that following an extensive tender and evaluation process, the NHS Yorkshire and Humber Commercial Procurement Collaborative has selected BigHand along with 5 other providers for the provision of digital dictation workflow software and speech recognition technology.

London, UK (PRWEB) August 13, 2009 -- BigHand, a leading provider of voice technology for the NHS, has today announced that following an extensive tender and evaluation process, the NHS Yorkshire and Humber Commercial Procurement Collaborative has selected BigHand along with 5 other providers for the provision of digital dictation workflow software and speech recognition technology.

The decision taken by Yorkshire and Humber has established a Framework Agreement for other NHS Procurement Hubs and Trusts to follow, removing the requirement to undertake further lengthy tender/RFI processes and allowing Trusts to purchase award winning voice technology from BigHand direct.

James Kippenberger, UK Sales Director at BigHand commented;

"For BigHand to be part of the Yorkshire and Humber Framework Agreement is a reflection of how popular our software has proved to be within the healthcare sector during the last 12 months. The NHS has worked directly with us over the past year to improve the levels of patient care delivered and reduce overheads. One Trust in particular has used it as part of a multi-million pound efficiency & savings plan.

As the developer and service provider of our own software, BigHand's NHS clients directly influence the future development of our technology and provision of services offered. We have established a community of NHS Trusts who share their experiences and help one another achieve common productivity and service objectives. Being able to deliver leading technology and facilitate best practice will enable many more NHS Trusts to deliver first class patient care amidst increasing pressure to hit key government targets."

BigHand digital dictation workflow and speech recognition software removes the administrative delays that occur between dictation and authorisation of notes, expediting communication between consultants, GPs and other medical professionals. The BigHand platform also enables a Trust to better control and secure any work that it outsources to specialist medical transcription agencies.

Trusts that have replaced their analogue tape dictation equipment with BigHand technology include Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust, Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and Wrightington Wigan & Leigh NHS Trust.
