Having already expanded into UK primary care in 2021, the introduction of AI-powered speech recognition and dictation is a further healthcare innovation being introduced by Dictate.IT, this time to support those working in Irish healthcare settings to deliver more connected and efficient care to patients. The objective will be to initially roll out the solution to secondary care settings and will be made available to primary settings next year.

The software is designed and delivered by UK-based healthcare technology company Dictate.IT, which was acquired by Clanwilliam Group in 2018.

The Dictate.IT speech suite is available for clinicians to use on PCs or via a mobile app, making dictating letters quick, easy and flexible. In a completely unique offering to the market, the speech software supports a variety of workflows to suit the varying ways of working in busy healthcare settings – either speech to text, speech to secretary or a combination of both. The Dictate.IT solutions are already established in the UK, providing flexible and fast AI-powered speech recognition solutions to 30,000 clinical users.

Jennifer Hughes, Chief Commercial Officer at Clanwilliam Group, said “The last 18 months have demonstrated the need to continue to innovate and develop the way in which we deliver primary and secondary healthcare. The speech recognition software that we’re announcing today helps to navigate the needs of remote working, all the while supporting clinical and administrative teams in a connected and instant way. Through the experience of Dictate.IT in the UK, we intend to further develop the offering and expand into other regions, including Ireland.”
