The development of a low cost, easy to use primary healthcare consulation recording, transcription and summarisation multi-modal patient data capture device (MEDISUMM)

Objective

The principle objective of this project is to develop a new integrated device for use in the primary healthcare sector in recording, transcribing and intelligently summarising consultations between the healthcare practitioner and the service user, to addre ss the fact that each year, 168,000 EU citizens suffer injury or death as a consequence of incorrect or incomplete medical records.
