The Fingerland Department of Pathology in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic, focuses on routine diagnostic procedures for live patients. As many as 1.000 bioptic forms and 1.500 specimens are prepared daily. Digital dictation and automatic speech recognition save time, reduce errors and consequently increase quality. 

Hradec Králové is a university city in the Czech Republic, located about 100 kilometers east of the capital Prague. The Fingerland Department of Pathology was founded in 1928. Thousands of diagnostic procedures mean a huge documentation effort. This is why the Pathology Department has been using dictation for a long time. Currently they have implemented a system of digital dictation with Philips hardware and workflow software together with automatic speech recognition by Newton Dictate. 

Easy to use and minimal errors

The digital dictation device Philips SpeechAir is easy to use and fits perfectly into the daily routines of medical personnel. Its specific modes (like overwrite or insert) are ideal for the professional way of working. Its excellent recording quality is key for having a correctly transcribed text. 

The recorded text is converted with automatic speech recognition by Newton Dictate and then checked and finalized by secretaries. Working with speech recognition by Newton is fast, it saves time and even though the terminology of pathologists is difficult, due to the special dictionary errors are minimal.
