What’s the research –
This paper focuses on the digitisation of Australian healthcare and the ongoing investment in the EMR. It is original research that sizes the clinical documentation challenge for clinicians and health institutions. It describes how speech enabling clinical documentation can help overcome these challenges and evidences this through case studies with measured outcomes demonstrating benefits of speech enabling clinical documentation.

Why it’s important –
Technology is changing modern healthcare at an unprecedented rate. For example, more than two-thirds of Australian GPs now exclusively use electronic medical records. However, despite extensive investment and widespread computerisation, many healthcare professionals are struggling to harness the full benefit of a paperless system with recent research revealing that clinicians can spend up to 50% of their time documenting care. What’s the solution?

What have we learned –
The key messages from the research suggest there is a need to accelerate adoption of eHealth in order to improve efficiency, productivity and turnaround times. Furthermore, through these improvements, eHealth can increase satisfaction in the working lives of clinicians.

Who should read this paper –
Digital Health Leaders and Managers, Health IT Directors and CIOs, Chief Clinical Information Officers, Medical Directors, Information Governance Leads, Doctors, Nurses and allied health professionals.
