TietoEnator, one of the largest IT services providers in Europe, specializes in consulting, developing and hosting its customers’ business operations in the digital economy. The company offers state-of-the-art ICT solutions and IT services for healthcare and welfare service providers. Now this Nordic IT giant has developed a voice control solution for recording dental findings in an electronic patient data record.

The purpose of voice control is to promote the efficiency and quality of oral healthcare.
“For dental professionals working alone, voice control means greater efficiency, more accurate information and improved hygiene at the workplace, as they can record their findings via microphone during the actual dental examination.
