Hungarian health center aiming for highest standards
Once upon a time there was a reputable military hospital in Budapest, Hungary. In in the year 2000 this hospital became the first private health center of Hungary, carrying the name Buda Health Center. Since these times a great success story evolved and today the establishment is one of the leading private health institutions in Budapest and the private hospital with the highest revenue in Hungary, offering its patients personalized comprehensive health care. Having already two main buildings and two medical stations in Budapest, the hospital aims to expand to the surroundings of the Hungarian capital with a third building soon.
Already since the military hospital days, the Buda Health Center sets standards in orthopedic and spine surgery in whole Hungary. This circumstance fostered the institution’s transformation towards a private hospital with high standards, employing around 150 doctors and additional 400 staff members and housing 125 beds in the main building.
Trusting in dictation for more than ten years
The Buda Health Center is fully aware of its pioneer role in Hungary, always having its high quality standards in mind. Delivering excellent medical services to their patients includes fast diagnosis processes which are done using the method of digital dictation. The hospital benefits from the Philips solutions already over ten years. These days the institution uses 60 Philips SpeechMike Dictation Microphones, several Philips PocketMemo Voice Recorders, around 60 licenses of Philips SpeechExec Dictation Software and transcription equipment. Hence, document creation processes are executed accurately and quickly, day by day. Ferenc Tóth, IT Administrator at Buda Health Center, is convinced of the benefits coming with the use of Philips dictation solutions: “Without any doubt dictation solutions by Philips support my colleagues and me to keep up the high level of quality at Buda Health Center and enable our doctors to get things done faster.” As the IT Administrator of the hospital he can see clearly the advantages for the doctors, being the users of the dictation equipment, but also for him as the responsible IT person: “Nowadays we face increasing demands on productivity in medical professions. Therefore, I appreciate tools such as the ones from Philips a lot. Mainly because they are user-friendly without the necessity of a long familiarization phase, technical support or extensive software installation.”
What I appreciate a lot is the possibility to mark certain recordings as urgent. This tells our transcriptionists to prioritize these recordings in order to receive transcriptions very fast.
