Project Summary

A return on investment analysis is being undertaken to assess the cost effectiveness of a pilot aimed at transforming the way patient letters are administered from a tape based dictation system to a digital based one.  The primary outcomes studied are document turnaround and secretary productivity and the digital system is being compared with the old analogue system in a return on investment analysis.
