- Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust

The BigHand for Healthcare product is now one of the most advanced and integrated solutions in the NHS for digital dictation and speech recognition, incorporating clinical correspondence within the same application. With this increased success BigHand, has expanded its Healthcare team by employing two new additional UK Healthcare Sales Managers, one new International Healthcare Sales Manager and another dedicated NHS Project Manager to ensure high quality and satisfaction levels are maintained as the demand increases for the BigHand for Healthcare system.
James Kippenberger, Managing Director UK Healthcare at BigHand commented;
“This is a really exciting time for the dictation market. The NHS is collectively realising huge benefits from implementing these sorts of solutions, but is equally pushing the boundaries of how the technology is used. The entire process is now better; not just for clinicians and secretaries internally, but for GPs and Patients as a direct result as well.
The success that BigHand has enjoyed over the last 12 months means that all those Trusts who now have BigHand, have a collective voice to determine the product’s development whilst also being able to share ideas between themselves about how to get the best from BigHand and its products.”
As a UK developer, BigHand has a 20+ strong development and products team based in the UK, made up of Software Engineers, all educated to Degree level, Software Testers who are ISEB qualified, a Technical Architect, Agile Business Analyst and Development Director. The BigHand for Healthcare system is an integral part of a continual development programme within BigHand’s Healthcare division to deliver products and services that meet NHS Trusts’ needs and requirements.
