Dictate.it launches next generation medical speech recognition to entire NHS Primary Health Care Network

Dictate.it launches next generation medical speech recognition to the entire NHS Primary Health Care Network - ‘Dictate IT Live’ - with a two months no-cost, no-commitment free trial.

LONDON, UK - (HealthTech Wire/ News) - Dictate.it has developed a Deep Neural Network based UK medical ASR engine which provides users with unparalleled accuracy from first use, with no voice profile training required.

The engine, a first for a UK health supplier, is available to all registered primary care practitioners on a free trial basis from the 22nd May 2018.

No separate microphone is required, instead using the users’ smartphone as a hi-res portable microphone. The service is available on all platforms including Mac OS which is very popular with health care professionals.

The service is available to all UK GPs with a free 2 month no-commitment unlimited use trial. Thereafter pay by monthly subscription, with no minimum contract.

Accuracy enhancements and software updates are automated and free forever.

Data is AES 256 encrypted in transit and at rest, and no data is left on users’ mobile devices.

The cloud-based engine is hosted in the UK at Amazon Web Services' secure London data centre.

iOS users can optionally use biometric logon for fast, secure access.

Dictate.it Live is the first medical ASR technology to have been developed entirely in-house by a British company - we do not use any 3rd party speech engines and can focus completely on UK medical requirements.

Mark Miller, the company’s Managing Director, commented:

“Almost all NHS clinicians are interested in trying Real Time Speech Recognition. Dictate IT has developed a next generation engine using AI computing which will outperform all other medical speech engines in terms of ease of use and accuracy.

"In addition to this doctors don’t need microphones, there is no cost to try it out and it works out of the box with no training.

"There is no precedent for a company releasing a service for free to an entire health system and we intend to break new ground with Dictate IT Live. I hope any GPs reading this will give it a go. We think they will like it if they do.”
