Our doctors are much more productive and our workflow more transparent with Winscribe Text…Report management doesn’t consume as many hospital resources as it used to.

On February 11, 2016, Winscribe was featured in a new healthcare case study released by Microsoft, which discussed the implementation of Winscribe Text at Cancer Centre Oscar Lambret (COL), France. Thanks to the Winscribe solution, which is built on Microsoft technology, the hospital is experiencing a dramatic improvement in the workflow of cancer patient documentation and staff productivity.

Key benefits highlighted in the case study include:

  •     A significant reduction in report turnaround time – from 21 days to just 3 days
  •     The reduction of report backlogs from approximately 600 reports to fewer than 30
  •     Improved patient care and treatment
  •     End-to-end document workflow management tailored to the needs of COL
  •     Increased doctor productivity and new mobile working options via Surface Pro 3 devices
  •     Reduced administrative work with the use of fast and accurate speech recognition

For patients diagnosed with cancer, it’s understandably frustrating to learn that they may need to wait for paperwork to be created and processed before they can commence treatment. COL’s implementation of the Winscribe Text medical reporting solution with integrated speech recognition software, based on the Microsoft Speech Platform, has dramatically reduced document creation time, and the use of the solution over Microsoft Surface Pro 3 devices has enabled doctors to be more productive while working on-the-go.

Didier Cauchois, Chief Information Officer at COL, commented during the case study interview that they needed to speed up report generation so treatment could be delivered faster. Following the implementation of Winscribe Text, Cauchois said: “Our doctors are much more productive and our workflow more transparent with Winscribe Text…Report management doesn’t consume as many hospital resources as it used to.”

“Working closely with the French Comprehensive Cancer Centres (CLCC), Winscribe has managed to provide a series of dedicated solutions and workflows adapted to their needs and in alignment with the French Healthcare digitalizing programme (Hôpital Numérique 2012 - 2017). This resulted in such a powerful case study, which was led and directed by Microsoft Healthcare,” commented Pierre Corboz, Director of Product Strategy at Winscribe. “Our commitment to using the full suite of Microsoft solutions – from their server infrastructure, .NET development language and speech recognition technology – made this a market winning combination, and COL’s CIO, Didier Cauchois, immediately saw how the solution was a perfect fit for their hospital’s needs. We are deploying Winscribe’s speech-enabled reporting solutions to healthcare organizations around the world, including several sites within the CLCC association in France.”
