Winscribe MD for Android, the dictation application for healthcare professionals, helps physicians to use their voice to complete patient examination reports and other documentation requirements on the move. It reduces the risk of mistaken identity by directly integrating with a hospital’s Patient Administration System.
Important: Downloading Winscribe MD is free of charge. Once downloaded, the application can record and store dictation jobs; however in order to progress further to send, transcribe and create documents, the user needs to have a Winscribe server licence. Please contact Winscribe for further information at: firstname.lastname@example.org
For integration with your hospital’s PAS system, please contact your Winscribe representative or Winscribe partner in your area.

Designed for Android smartphones and tablets, Winscribe MD for Android incorporates an advanced scheduling system that allows physicians to view a live feed of their appointments, including patient details, on their smartphone or tablet. It allows you to immediately start a recording against a patient record with a single tap. As reports are matched to a patient record at the capture stage, patient safety is heightened and data quality improved - a critical component in ensuring the accuracy of electronic patient/medical records.
Note: This application replaces the original Winscribe Digital Dictation application. Existing healthcare customers may switch to Winscribe MD free of charge, using your existing Winscribe server licence.
Winscribe MD is different from other voice to text or dictation applications on the Android marketplace, as it is part of a wider dictation workflow solution that integrates directly into hospital information systems via a HL7 interface.
The integration of Winscribe’s dictation workflow engine with a hospital’s information system ensures the smooth flow of information between systems. Without the need for re-keying information, turnaround targets for important documents such as discharge summaries, pathology and oncology reports can be more consistently achieved.
Traditionally, the less than optimal Wi-Fi coverage in many hospital environments has been a barrier to a more widespread adoption of mobile technology. Winscribe MD provides a solution: Reports can be securely sent via encrypted 3G, 4G or super-fast LTE connections. If data transfer costs via mobile networks are undesirable, Wi-Fi only modus can be enabled. In areas where no Wi-Fi connection is present, dictation jobs are stored and automatically uploaded once connectivity is regained.
Further features of Winscribe’s dictation app for healthcare providers include:
• the ability for clinicians to manage and check the status of their reports
• the ability to attach notes
• the ability to attach pictures
• the ability to attach GPS location data
• the ability to attach links to a document in a document management system
Transmission of dictation files occurs via HTTPS protocol to ensure the highest levels of patient confidentiality. Enhanced visibility and control gives users the ability to view where jobs are at in the transcription process, and modify workflows accordingly. Voice data is securely encrypted on the devices’ SD card and device lock down options are included.
Winscribe MD is designed to run on all Android phones with touchscreen capabilities on OS 4.0.3 or higher, and a Secure Digital (SD) card, as well as on Android Tablets.
