Medical Times Middle East features Speech Recognition

Dubai Jumeirah Palm Island Medical Times Middle East recently dedicated an article to healthcare speech recognition based on interviews conducted at ArabHealth. Editor Vernon Baxter starts off the article by questioning Bill Gates’ 1997 prediction (“in this 10-year time frame…we will have perfected speech recognition and speech output”) in the light of present achievements.

“Gates may have been a little optimistic with his prediction, but voice-recognition is finally making inroads into healthcare (…) With the increasing presence of electronic medical records in clinics, the potential benefits of a voice-activated interface have never been greater.

Baxter goes on to comment the state-of-the-union between vendors and client healthcare organizations, quoting top vendor executives along the way, including:

– Koen Schoof, senior product manager, dictation and healthcare, EMEA, Nuance Communication.

– Costa Mandilaras, president, Crescendo Systems Corporation.

– James McPherson, project and client manager, Voice Technologies.
