An average-sized, 200-bed hospital could see paper costs rise from an estimated €460K per year to €542K per year. Papermakers are increasing their prices between 6% and 15% due to demand, supply, the impact of energy and fuel costs, and freight and shipping challenges. These challenges are set to continue in the current climate, and the knock-on effects are indiscriminate. Hospitals are not immune, as many still record some or all of their patients' medical records on paper.

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.
