New EMIS system will listen to and ‘interpret’ GP-patient conversations


I will be interested to see how the EMIS voice recognition system copes with the Scottish and Doric that’s spoken in my remote region! I suspect that the new system is also another way of policing us regardless of any medico-legal protection. In the not too distant future we will not be needed at all so patients are welcome to develop a meaningful relationship with the computer. If the computers get it wrong then we’ll still get the blame or could we pass the buck onto the programmers?!
