Empela

| Making voice better than a visit.

COVID-19 means there are now twice as many GP appointments happening remotely. This shift is causing problems. A visit was better than a voice call because doctors have the medical scribes, secretaries and dictation software which take the grind out of face-to-face consultations. But now, Empela makes voice better than a visit.

We are providing GPs safe, efficient phone consultations for clinicians that are integrated into the workflow and automatically summarised for the record so that doctors are happier and the NHS can do more with less.
