The article discusses the challenge of translating speech recognition technology's promise of streamlining operations and reducing staffing needs into savings without sacrificing quality and efficiency. It reminds hospitals about the ramifications of medical record and cites the training and workflow reengineering that they must do when adopting speech recognition. It also highlights the need to automate tasks that do not require human intellect and concentrate manpower in areas that do.
