The Digital Dictation is fully integrated into the CliniCenter environment. It is handled with a tethered Dictaphone (Philips Speechmike) and separated in two main parts: First, the Audiorecorder. This tool is used to record dictations. Secondly the Audiopool which is used by medical typists in form of a To-Do-List of all dictations. There are some main advantages of the Digital Dication: compared with the analogue process of the preparation of medical findings, Digital Dictation can be found easily. Additionally, the patients ar matched automatically and dictations can be linked to others. However, dictations without a reference to a patient are even possible through a simple shifting. Every clinical report can be replayed, even though the dictation has not been written yet by the medical typist.
