Nowadays in many hospitals all over the world there is an acute lack of physicians. In many cases in such hospitals, the physicians are overwhelmed by a large number of patients which they must consult or visit after a surgery. In order to help them, the physicians are accompanied by resident students which are learning from the physician, but also must note his observations, usually there is a student in the group which will note the observations and then, after the visit he will wrote down on the patient observation sheet the physician observations. Many times, the student is not able to write everything down and he is writing what he is remembering resulting that important information will be omitted. To solve this problem, the paper proposes an information system which allow the physician to record his observations using a smart phone, then the recording is converted to text using a cloud speech to text service and added to the patient observation sheet. The system allows to preserve the confidentiality of medical data and addition of new (medical) words to dictionary.
