National accreditation brings huge boost
to Banbury-based Lexacom

PUBLISHED: 15:38 23 September 2013 | UPDATED: 09:35 24 September 2013

Lexacom Digital Dictation is now a fully accredited partner to EMIS, the UK’s leading supplier of clinical software and related services to GP practices.

The two companies have signed a three-year agreement that will enable full integration between their systems, to improve quality and efficiency for their customers. This announcement follows a strong period of growth for the company, which has seen it establish exclusive partnerships with resellers in both Australia and the UAE, as well as moving to larger premises in Hardwick Business Park, Banbury, to accommodate its growing team. The deal with EMIS now means Lexacom is the only digital dictation provider approved by the three leading clinical systems, offering significant benefits to medical practices and patients.

Lexacom 3 now integrates fully with EMIS Web, LV and PCS, which together are used by over 50% of GP practices in the UK. By integrating the two systems, GPs dictating with Lexacom will be able to automatically retrieve relevant patient data from the EMIS system and add files, notes and other attachments to dictations, before sending them electronically to their admin team for transcribing. Once typed and approved, letters and other notes will be automatically filed in the patient’s notes on EMIS, providing an easily accessible, secure audit trail.

When combined with Lexacom’s other features, including mobile dictation and advanced management and reporting functions, full integration with EMIS improves overall efficiency, allowing GP practices to deliver an even better service to patients.

Practices trialing the new integrated system have already found the benefits invaluable. Ben Evans, from Kineton Surgery in Warwickshire said, “Using Lexacom 3 with EMIS integration has had a big impact on our practice. Doctors are finding the system even more time efficient, secretaries are confident of accessing the correct patient information and our patients benefit from a quicker, safer system. Lexacom has become part of everyday life at our practice.”

Chris Jones, Commercial Manager for EMIS said of thepartnership, “We are delighted to welcome Lexacom software as part of the EMIS partner programme. We expect it to offer our users significant improvements in the dictation process that will ultimately benefit their patients. The deal follows a rigorous approval process during which we have been impressed with the ease of use and flexibility of Lexacom’s software, as well as their approach to customer service. As with all of our partners, Lexacom has committed to EMIS’ requirement for interoperability and shared standards ­– enabling our products to work together seamlessly.”

Dr Andrew Whiteley, said, “This announcement represents a significant step forward for us as an organization but also for many of our clients who rely on EMIS Clinical Systems. We are the only digital dictation software provider to be approved by the three main clinical systems, EMIS, Vision and SystmOne, offering integration with each system.”

Lexacom digital dictation and workflow software is intuitive to use and has been shown to speed up the referral process significantly when compared to analogue dictation. Lexacom 3, the company’s latest software, includes a range of enhancements including clinical integration with EMIS, Vision and SystmOne, advanced management and reporting tools, compatibility with Microsoft Word, and Digital Voice Recorder (DVR) integration.
