The technology speeds up paperwork by up to 20 percent.
Moscow polyclinics and hospitals are introducing a voice input service for ultrasound examination protocols. The technology allows you to dictate the description of the study and not waste time on entering information manually. Since the fall of 2020, doctors of ultrasound diagnostics of six polyclinics have tested it in a pilot mode. In the near future, the service will be able to use in other medical institutions, she said Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor for Social Development.
“In 2019, thanks to a single digital healthcare platform, we implemented
voice input technology in the work of Moscow radiologists. The digital assistant automatically decodes the spoken words, translates them into text format, and inserts them into the protocol template. After the radiologists started using it successfully, we decided to start using the service in the work of other specialists, ”she said.
Doctors master the new tool in just a few days, and its constant use helps them significantly save time on paperwork and pay more attention to research. Tests have shown that, thanks to voice input, doctors complete protocols on average 20 percent faster.
The voice assistant was created on the basis of artificial intelligence. He can constantly learn new things: replenish the vocabulary with complex and rare medical terms, adapt to the pronunciation of different people, contribute to the implementation of new diagnostic and therapeutic tasks.
The introduction of such technologies is possible thanks to a unified digital healthcare platform, which was jointly developed by a complex for the social development of Moscow and Department of Information Technology. Services based on artificial intelligence are also used in radiology – they are integrated into the Unified Radiological Information Service.
