Crescendo Secure Place on new NHS SBS Digital Dictation & Speech Recognition National Framework

Crescendo are pleased to announce their inclusion once more on the latest National SBS (Shared Business Systems) NHS Digital Dictation, Speech Recognition and Outsourced Transcription Framework.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have consolidated our place onto this important national framework”, said John Bendall, Operations Director, Crescendo, “and we believe that to be considered a top supplier by such a significant NHS procurement organisation is a reflection of the quality of our software solutions,  staff and professional services. 

The award will give NHS Trusts, and other healthcare organisations, the opportunity to be able to access our full range of on-premise or cloud-based digital dictation and speech recognition solutions. These include our DigiScribe-XL Digital Dictation Workflow Solution, Dragon Medical One, a secure, cloud based speech Engine that can be installed in minutes onto virtually any Windows workstation or laptop, and our innovative Trust-wide Centro System which features patient-centric, clinical documentation technology for the entire care team and ground-breaking, speaker independent speech recognition that requires no user training”.

“Another attraction for NHS Trusts procuring from the SBS framework” continued Bendall, “is that we are able to offer our solutions both as a fixed cost option or on a subscription basis in order to facilitate any particular healthcare organisations budgetary requirements.  We want to give NHS Trusts the financial flexibility to achieve significant efficiency savings but on their terms,” said John.
