The importance of recognising Australia’s medical excellence

Northern Territory (NT) medical professionals are finally set to be formally recognised for their hard work, with the state government introducing the NT Health Excellence Awards. This long-awaited move brings the state in line with other medical awards programmes nationwide. Nominations are open to professionals from a range of disciplines, with categories for everyone in healthcare, from veterans to trainees, and individual efforts to team successes.

The importance of recognising Australia's medical excellence shouldn't be undervalued, with doctors and other healthcare professionals nationwide working every day to improve the wellness of Australia's most vulnerable. However, these professionals are often hamstrung in their work by time consuming note-taking and administration. Voice Recognition are addressing this problem with Dragon Medical dictation and transcription software, a platform designed to speed up administrative tasks and free doctors to get back to excelling in medicine.

Australian medical industry excellence

There are already numerous state and national awards to celebrate the successes of Australian medical professionals. However, their success comes hamstrung by the weight of medical need outstripping the number of doctors and the time they have. The Australian Bureau of Statistics indicated that nearly one in five people who visited a GP in 2015 felt they waited longer than they should have for an appointment, while 24 per cent felt that they didn't have enough consultation time. Time-poor doctors and other medical professionals are forced to spend too much time in copious note-taking by hand.
