We continually improve the clinician experience in Vitro, as we now include advanced Voice Enablement in our Digital Medical Record with features such as Voice Control, Speech to Text & Notes Templating. Voice enablement saves a tremendous amount of time on administration, while a clinician might typically type 40 words per minute or less, they speak over 120 words per minute. Voice commands are at the user's own pace; there is no requirement to wait for the text to appear on screen. In addition to reducing the time take to complete notes, through the templating functionality, Vitro Voice encourages more complete & consistent notetaking, improving overall quality & making clinical coding easier.

At Vitro Software we undergo regular audits for the internationally recognised ISO 9001:2015 standard by an independent certification company. This is to ensure our quality management system is operating at its best. Our QMS acts as a framework to ensure we deliver the best possible service to our clients, so we are delighted when we receive independent validation of our systems. As 2020 has been the year of going virtual, our team and the independent auditors worked together this year to remotely go through the auditing process, and we are delighted to receive certification until 2023.

Vitro Software has included a new Remote Patient Management (RPM) and telemedicine module to its Digital Medical Record in partnership with myPatientSpace, offering patients ongoing clinician led care from the comfort and protection of their own homes, an increasingly important functionality for vulnerable patients in pandemic times.
Both patients and hospitals will benefit from the remote management, as non-critical hospital visits can be avoided and social distancing compliance will be easier, particularly in hospitals with reduced capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions. And it is expected that many patients’ recovery journeys can improve, empowering patients and with the added benefit of less travel required for their appointments.

We are delighted to be exhibiting at this year's APHA (Australian Private Hospitals Association) annual conference. The 39th annual conference will be taking place at the Adelaide Convention Centre from March 15-17th, 2020. The APHA Congress will bring together leaders from across the private healthcare sector to discuss the ever changing health landscape in Australia and this year focus on "The impact of innovative technologies on health care". What new technology is already being employed overseas and what impact will it have when it arrives on our shores?
