Digital dictation installed at one of world’s leading eye hospitals

Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust introduces digital dictation system with marketing-leading BigHand technology


London, UK, 27 June, 2011 – Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, one of the world’s leading eye hospitals has today announced to invest in BigHand’s digital dictation solution for up to 250 users across the Trust.


Moorfields Eye Hospital plan to utilise BigHand’s digital dictation platform to initially replace the use of their analogue tape-based system, improve the management of workload across their departments, develop better provisions of cross over support for secretaries during leave or absence and to improve the efficiency at which documents can be turned around from clinician to the secretary and then onto the patient.  


Antoinette Flynn, Assistant General Manager Capacity, Access & Theatres SDU at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust commented:


“We decided to implement digital dictation this year as a means to help further enhance the efficiency at which the Trust operates. We had to question if our current analogue tape system could deliver our Trust requirements in the long term. With the project still in it’s very early stages, we hope BigHand will be able to work with us in developing a much more seamless and streamlined way of working for our clinicians and secretaries.”    


Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust are now the fifth NHS Trust in London to implement BigHand’s voice productivity software.
