News : Physicians Save Hours Using Nuance Dragon Medical Cloud-based Speech Recognition
Burlington, MA, USA, July 12, 2016 -- Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) announced that Edward-Elmhurst Health has helped their physicians save up to two hours per shift using Nuance’s cloud-based clinical speech recognition solution. Dragon(R) Medical One was deployed to physicians in more than 100 facilities to streamline clinical documentation, while delivering a consistent voice experience and supporting existing clinical workflows regardless of where they see patients. In addition, Dragon Medical Analytics provides immediate clinical and performance data and insights for measuring and tracking clinician adoption and use within the organization, optimizing use of the technology in patient care delivery.
"Our organization is always looking for technology that helps our users be more productive—no matter how they work," said Don Fosen, Director of Information Technology, Edward-Elmhurst Health. "Nuance’s clinical speech recognition solution helped us achieve these goals and enabled physicians to save up to two hours per shift and cutting down on documentation done after hours or at home. Using Dragon Medical One, our physicians now speak their notes, and all of the documentation goes directly into our EHR system. These notes are available in real time, helping nurses and other physicians access critical patient information much more quickly than ever before. In many cases, our nurses are completely up to speed on a case before a patient arrives, which significantly expedites treatment and improves patient care."
"Dragon Medical One provided seamless access to speech recognition in the Epic EHR as different sites and care teams came together as one organization," said Peter Mahoney, senior vice president and general manager of clinical documentation, Nuance. "Ubiquitous speech recognition across workflows not only improves physician adoption, but it has significantly improved physician collaboration, productivity and satisfaction and most importantly, it has helped them deliver better patient care."
"Our clinicians have used Dragon Medical for many years, and they loved the way it improved clinical documentation," said Fosen. "Even so, the release of Dragon Medical One and its cloud-based platform has significantly improved portability, provided greater access to users and made it much easier for IT to support and maintain. With Dragon Medical One, our transition to the cloud was extremely easy and effective."
