[London, 6 June 2024] – With deep, hassle-free, integration, Augnito is enabling continued transformation in radiology and supporting key solutions that will be showcased at UKIO 2024.

Taking place from 10th-12th June 2024 in Liverpool, the UK Imaging and Oncology (UKIO) congress is where leaders from across radiology come together to share best practice, discuss trends, undertake professional development, and learn about the latest state-of-the-art equipment and technology. The 2024 event will focus on the theme of ‘Vision and Values: Putting People First’.

Thanks to robust partnerships and extensive integration with leading platforms, Augnito speech recognition from Scribetech will be present at the event for the fourth year running.

“Nothing is more important to us than elevating fields across healthcare, and radiology is a particular focus,” stated Shiraz Austin, Managing Director at Scribetech (UK) Ltd and Co-Founder of Augnito. “Augnito Spectra, our own highly convenient frontend across desktop and mobile, is part of this approach, but integration is equally important. Technology providers understand the potential of speech recognition as an accessible way for healthcare to leverage the potential of AI. Our partnerships with award-winning providers using Augnito Voice Services to speech enable their platforms is key to how, together, we can bring the benefits of speech recognition to more radiologists.”

One of the solutions carrying Augnito Voice Services embedded inside is Intelerad’s InSight PACS,  adopted by over 250 NHS and private healthcare providers across the UK and Ireland. In February 2024, InSight PACS was recognised as a 2024 Best in KLAS: Global Software Report award winner. Crucially, this award was based on feedback from the solution’s users – the people who rely on radiology reporting technology every day.

Austin stated: “Clinical system developers and cloud imaging solution providers appreciate Augnito for its API and SDK allowing them to seamlessly add Voice Services to their offering. We’ve taken one-of-a-kind speech recognition, developed in partnership with clinicians, and made it easy to integrate into any existing diagnostics and radiology reporting platform. But what drives us is the response from radiologists. People have reported significant time savings, faster reports, and increased accuracy – all these benefits lead to smoother patient journeys and better outcomes. That’s what matters.”

Augnito is also integrated into Hexarad: Radiology Technology Innovator of the Year in the M&A Today Global Awards 2024. Hexarad was also awarded the Silver HSJ Partnership Award for Diagnostics Project of the Year for its partnership with the North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust. This project led to estimated time savings of up to 80 minutes per patient. Meanwhile, teleradiologists reporting on behalf of the trust received images within 25 minutes compared to 45 minutes using the previous system.

Representatives from these leading imaging solutions award winners will be attending UKIO 2024, (Hexarad), and exhibiting (Intelerad) alongside other high profile Scribetech partners using Augnito to speech-enable their systems. Exhibitors include Aptvision Ltd – with their e-referral portal, delivering better patient outcomes and reducing workloads for medical staff, CIMAR UK Ltd – who has recently joined forces with NHS England to deliver the AI Development Platform Pilot at Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust that will then enable the deployment of AI in medical imaging across the NHS, Fujifilm Healthcare UK – has integrated Augnito into its Universal Reporting module and will be showing this at UKIO, as well as new ultrasound imaging innovations and live demonstrations on its DeepInsight AI technology, Magentus – with a new Managing Director at their UK helm and a team supporting more than 25 million imaging events each year across 700+ locations with its Cris Radiology Information System, and OpenRad Services UK Ltd – showcasing its cloud-based Augnito speech-enabled remote reporting platform that includes the functionalities of a PACS, RIS and diagnostic 3D visualisation as distinct subscription packages with secure access from anywhere and from any device.

This significant presence at UKIO reflects the continued growth of Augnito AI powered speech recognition across radiology.

Scribetech is also a member of AXREM, the UK trade association for suppliers of imaging and healthcare equipment. This gives the company insight into the current and emerging needs of radiologists and imaging professionals and helps ensure that its voice-driven AI powered and cloud based solution, Augnito, remains relevant, impactful and evolving in pace with demand.

“This will be the fourth year running, since launching Augnito technology, that it is being shown at UKIO through our partners,” added Austin. “And while Scribetech has been an approved NHS solutions provider for over two decades, we brought Augnito to the UK market as a disruptive technology because our vision was to democratise the use of speech recognition across the continuum of care. We knew Augnito provided the value advantage – a better and more cost effective way for healthcare professionals to leverage the cloud and AI, to easily transform their patient data workflows. Now, 30 months later, we’re supporting more than 2,000 UK radiologists who have switched to Augnito – through our partnerships – and many others directly. We couldn’t agree more with this year’s UKIO theme and message ‘Vision and Values: Putting People First’. The positive effect that the impact Augnito is having on radiologists, and on patient imaging and diagnostics reporting speaks for itself. ”

AUGNITO

[London, 15 March 2022] – Bespoke speech recognition technology, Augnito, aids Wellbeing Software with highly accurate Radiology Information System workflows.

 

Scribetech has announced the integration of its disruptive, AI-powered voice-driven speech recognition (SR) software, Augnito, into Wellbeing Software’s Radiology Information System, Cris. Wellbeing Software is a leading supplier of specialist clinical information solutions, enabling better patient care across hospital departments, including radiology and maternity.

Augnito is a secure and portable AI-driven clinical SR product suite that offers fast, effortless ways to capture live clinical data, on any device, with 99.3% accuracy. The SaaS cloud-based solution is proven to create highly accurate clinical records, improving everything from patient diagnosis to patient hospital stays. Radiology departments have been the earlier adopters and pioneers of speech recognition technology to accommodate the ever-increasing levels of a wide variety of diagnostic reporting and the ever-expanding modality spectrum.

Radiologists are again picking up the baton of technology and embracing AI, proven to do the heavy lifting of reporting as demand increases. Wellbeing Software is widely recognised as being at the forefront of this technology. Working with Augnito’s additional and specifically developed clinical API and SDK tools, the need for time-consuming localised maintenance and upgrades is reduced and can now all be done centrally in the cloud.

Adopting Augnito into Wellbeing’s Cris, the UK’s most widely used Radiology Information System (RIS), will provide significant benefits to radiologists, NHS Trusts, clinicians, and patients – including faster reporting and improved patient data, with the ability to reduce clinical risk through focused anchoring. Augnito also allows the radiologist to use multiple screens and other third-party applications securely without losing focus from the patient record.

In an industry suffering a shortfall of radiologists and an overwhelming increase in reporting due to mounting reporting backlogs, added to the ever present administrative tasks connected to the role, time saved through AI driven clinical reporting can now begin to ease the growing burden on the healthcare professional.

Augnito delivers AI driven speech-enablement and voice-driven capability to applications without the need of typing or transcription but with the added ability of use across mobile and desktop devices. Augnito technology carries Scribetech’s commitment to data accuracy along with an impressive 20-year strong relationship with the NHS. It brings speech recognition to the clinical healthcare professionals who need it the most, alleviating clinical risk, cutting costs and avoiding difficult and time-consuming upgrades to legacy systems.

Shiraz Austin, Co-Founder & Managing Director at Scribetech (UK) Ltd, said: “We are thrilled to announce this working partnership with Wellbeing – a truly symbiotic relationship. Augmenting workflows with cutting-edge technology can transform healthcare institutions to improve patient care across all departments.”

“In Radiology, this will improve the very essence of healthcare from diagnosis to treatment and recovery, while minimising errors and inaccuracies. We are confident that this, in turn, will allow for significant returns on investment and enable us to expand on our mission to provide high quality and accurate speech recognition across the continuum of care. We are aiming to build many more partnerships like this in the future and reach other clinical departments where patient care is a vital part of a healthcare professional’s work.”

Steve Avery, General Manager, UK Operations at Wellbeing Software, said: “We have been incredibly impressed with Augnito. Its use of AI creates a powerful yet lightweight product that can make clinicians more efficient and safer, therefore improving patient outcomes. It is a most-welcomed addition to our service offerings, and we are excited to pass these benefits onto our customers.”
