Nurses, clinicians and care workers have extensive and overwhelming commitments regarding entering data and filling out paperwork, with a recent study highlighting that nurses reported that they spend a third of their time on data entry and administrative tasks.
Voice input has come a long way since dictaphones and new advancements in artificial intelligence mean that voice interfaces may present an opportunity to reduce time spent on administration, capture standardised information and allow greater direct patient interaction. A further benefit of hands free data entry could be the reduction of the risk of passing infections through touching shared devices, for example keyboards or screens.
During a medical appointment or situation, would you be comfortable with your health or care professional recording your notes using their voice?
If you are a clinician, nurse or care provider, how do you think voice data entry could impact your role? Do you have any concerns, or issues that would need to be addressed before you could use a similar system?
