Framework Agreement Information

Digital Dictation Solutions [224KB]

Digital Dictation Solutions

When does it start?
16th March 2016 - 15th March 2019 (with the option
to extend for a further year if required)


Who can take advantage?
All NHS SBS Members and Associate Members

 

Who developed it?
This Framework provides a wide range of
technology solutions to meet the evolving needs of
NHS & Wider Public Sector Organisations for Digital
Dictation, Speech Recognition and Outsourced
Transcription Services. Innovative pricing options
provide Organisations with the flexibility to either
invest in a capital purchase of hardware & software
solutions or alternatively purchase the services on
a subscription model where hosting options can be
discussed or through a price per line basis (i.e.
software as a service SaaS) where greater flexibility
is a key driver.

Why should I use it?
• INCREASED EFFICIENCY
Reduces Document turnaround time saving valuable time for staff (no more hunting for tapes or hunting for secretaries to type urgent transcriptions).
• WORKFLOW MANAGEMENT
Streamlines the document management process improving staff productivity by allowing secretaries visibility of workloads.
• VALUE FOR IT
Seamless integration with IT Systems such as EPR, Encrypted Data Files for added Security & minimal ongoing support overheads.
• COST SAVINGS
Fixed Pricing Offering Competitive Rates for Hardware & Software with various Models to
Support Individual Organisations with ROI typically achievable within 6-9 months.
• OJEU AVOIDANCE
A Procurement Exercise already has taken place therefore no formal tendering required saving time and money in the procurement process.
• FLEXIBILITY AT CALL OFF
Opportunity to run a mini-competition off the back of the Framework or direct award to selected suppliers that meet requirements.
• BUNDLED SERVICE
Opportunity for Customers to bundle Service Areas together to delivery efficiency and improvement savings.
• MANAGED SERVICE
An ability for customers to utilise the manage service lot containing all service areas included within this procurement.

 

Who developed it?
The Framework was developed with stakeholders from Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust & University Hospital South Manchester Foundation Trust supporting the evaluation following a rigorous procurement process was led by NHS SBS.
