Philips Dictation technology helps a healthcare customer meet Information Governance targets


The organisation had already moved away from analogue technology, but had a need to update their digital dictation devices to ones with an integrated bar code scanner, with the ability to scan off paper and screen, rather than the add-on scanners they had been using. They chose the Philips Pocket Memo DPM8500 recorders, which offer 256bit file encryption, PIN access, and USB mass storage protection, ensuring they could meet its Information Governance targets. 

A more accurate and secure way of working

The Pocket Memo 8500’s USB mass storage protection prevents the memory card being used as an external USB storage device.  If files are downloaded onto the dictation device, they are automatically deleted once it is removed from the computer. In addition, improved sound clarity and the ability to track correspondence using Philips SpeechExec Pro software make the devices even more flexible for use in a busy and versatile work environment. Clinicians favour the integrated bar code scanners, linking client or patient data to a recording file – simply by scanning a bar code, as an important and time-saving benefit.

The easy incorporation of the Pocket Memo 8500 into their existing IT systems meant that staff were able to quickly replace their previous products with the new digital solution with no hassle or delay.  The Divisional Manager comments: “It was the best technical solution available. The Pocket Memos are easy to use, helping us to help our patients quickly and with the utmost care – leaving everyone with a smile on their face. We love them!”
