The Digital Telephone Desktop 9850 can be accessed and operated using any touchtone telephone, mobile phones, PDA or car phone. The device answers calls automatically and physicians can record dictations wherever they are by making a simple telephone call. The user ID grants them individual access rights, while the telephone keypad gives full control of the unit. Dictations are stored on a memory card and can be uploaded automatically on a PC or server, ensuring central and secure file storage. 

In combination with the digital dictation software SpeechExec, the Telephone Desktop offers numerous workflow options and routes voice files to specific locations such as a LAN, FTP server or an e-mail address for remote transcription.

The new Philips SpeechMike, with barcode scanner, further adds to workflow comfort in hospitals. It assigns medical reports to the corresponding patient with 100% accuracy, Philips Speech Processing reports. ‘Previously, doctors had to carefully dictate the patient number, name, sex, age, etc. This data can now be read in automatically. The new device reads barcodes from up to 30cm and has an adjustable scan angle, allowing it to be conveniently set to two different positions. The ergonomic design assures comfort even during longer dictation sessions. The barcode scanner is activated through a trigger at the back of the device. It seamlessly integrates with workflow systems such as hospital information systems, thus ensuring efficient dictation, high documentation accuracy and optimum data security.
