Contract enables full integration between GP clinical systems
Lexacom Digital Dictation has become a fully accredited partner to EMIS, the UK’s leading supplier of clinical software and related services to GP practices.
The two companies have signed a three-year agreement that will enable full integration between their systems, to improve quality and efficiency for medical services.
Lexacom 3 now integrates fully with EMIS Web, LV and PCS, which together are used by more than 50% of GP practices in the UK. By integrating the two systems, GPs dictating with Lexacom will be able to automatically retrieve relevant patient data from the EMIS system and add files, notes and other attachments to dictations, before sending them electronically to their admin team for transcribing. Once typed and approved, letters and other notes will be automatically filed in the patient’s notes on EMIS, providing an easily accessible, secure audit trail.
When combined with Lexacom’s other features, including mobile dictation and advanced management and reporting functions, full integration with EMIS improves overall efficiency, allowing GP practices to deliver an even better service to patients.
Ben Evans, from Kineton Surgery in Warwickshire said of the system: “Using Lexacom 3 with EMIS integration has had a big impact on our practice. Doctors are finding the system even more time efficient, secretaries are confident of accessing the correct patient information and our patients benefit from a quicker, safer system. Lexacom has become part of everyday life at our practice.”
Chris Jones, commercial manager for EMIS, added: “We are delighted to welcome Lexacom software as part of the EMIS partner programme. We expect it to offer our users significant improvements in the dictation process that will ultimately benefit their patients.”
Lexacom digital dictation and workflow software is intuitive to use and has been shown to speed up the referral process significantly when compared to analogue dictation. Lexacom 3, the company's latest software, includes a range of enhancements including integration with EMIS, Vision and SystmOne, advanced management and reporting tools, compatibility with Microsoft Word, and Digital Voice Recorder (DVR) integration.
