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


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. Our proposed programme of work encompasses the following major components: WPl: The creation of new Knowledge in the field s of: spectral analysis of human voice, Microphone design and placement for n-person dialogue capture, communication and vocabulary paradigms within primary health care. WP2: Development of the Speaker Differentiation Module, capable of digitally recordin g the consultation and differentiating between the speakers WP3: Development of the Transcription Module, capable of processing the previously recorded digital audio stream and persistently storing the transcript. WP4: Development of the Summarisation En gine, capable of generating a user-configurable contextual summary of the transcript WP5: Integration and testing of the developed technological innovations into a prototype MEDISUMM device WP6: Carry out innovation related activities such as protection of IPR, absorption of results by participants, dissemination activities, socio-economic studies and promotion of exploitation WP7: Manage the consortium by the active management of innovation related activities, technical activities, legal aspects and oth er issues
